Even though chips are not the most popular thing to talk about at the cool kids lunch table, this article would definitely be worth reading. Many people would think that this would just be some ordinary, average chip – but really, it’s not. It is much more than that actually. The Orion has a dual core 1 GHz ARM Cortex A9 CPU with a quad-core Mali 400 GPU on board. This was seen at the ARM Technology Conference sometime this week when they were showing “Linaro” Linux middleware, along with some stock Android 2.2 technology.
All of the bugs were not worked out with the Samsung Orion, so they were not able to show what a HDTV would look like with it. However, there was a demo given of Futuremark’s old Cyber Samurai benchmark which was running on a smaller screen. This gave people a good idea of what this chip was capable of. Many people were quite impressed as you might of guessed.
The news keeps getting better. There are also a lot of rumors going around that this chip will be in other products later this year into next year – and years to come. People are really expecting this chip to help out other products, so there is a lot of excitement at this point. Rumors have it that this will most likely end up in some other type of flagship phone soon such as the next Unlocked Galaxy Tab. There is no word when all of the kinks will be worked out on this chip where people can be shown what a HDTV would look like with it, but they have been working non-stop on it over the past few days to get it fixed. Pretty soon, we will get to see all of the capabilities that this chip possesses; there’s a lot to look forward to.
