Texas Instruments on Thursday unveiled its latest mobile processor, the 1.8GHz dual-core OMAP4470, from the annual Computex trade show in Taipei, Taiwan. The new CPU is destined for smartphones and tablets, and it features a power-sipping design that offers a variety of performance enhancements compared to older processors. According to TI, the OMAP4470 will deliver an 80% improvement in Web browsing performance, a 250% improvement in graphics performance, up to 200% more layered imaging and video composition, and support for up to three HD displays and up to QXGA 2048 x 1536-pixel resolution. “Superior mobile computing relies on a user experience that dwarfs all others. Fast and crisp Web browsing, HD and liquid UIs, support for the latest applications—these are the elements consumers judge and buy their devices on,” said TI’s VP of the OMAP platform, Remi El-Ouazzane, in a statement. ”The OMAP4470 processor delivers the maximum experience possible with an unmatched, power-efficient architecture.” OMAP4470 samples will begin shipping to partners in the second half of 2011, with devices utilizing the chip expected to begin shipping in the first half of 2012.
