Samsung reveals dual-core mobile processor

It's a day for dual-core mobile chips. Not only has LG announced its 1GHz NVIDIA chip but Samsung has introduced a 1GHz ARM CORTEX dual-core processor. It's codenamed 'Orion' and – like its rival – supports 1080p full HD video and can deliver five times the 3D graphics performance of previous processors.

Dojun Rhee, vice president of Marketing at the System LSI Division of Samsung Electronics, said "Consumers are demanding the full web experience without compromise while on the go. Given this trend, mobile device designers need an application processor platform that delivers superb multimedia performance, fast CPU processing speed, and abundant memory bandwidth. Samsung’s newest dual core application processor chip is designed specifically to fulfill such stringent performance requirements while maintaining long battery life."

Orion features a pair of 1GHz ARM Cortex A9 cores, each with a 32KB data cache and a 32KB instruction cache. It'll be available to key business partners later this year and is scheduled for mass production in the first half of 2011.
