When it comes to portable device processors, Qualcomm usually gets most of the good attention and press hype. You'll see the 1 GHz Snapdragon chip in a wide variety of high-end devices (Nexus One, HD2, etc), Marvell doesn't have anything nearly that exciting out on the market. Or at least, they didn't until today. The chip-maker has just sent out a press release announcing the unveiling of their new Armada 610 series at CES 2010.
The Armada 610 has a gigahertz-class CPU and the ability to render 1080p full HD encode and decode, as well as 3D graphics. It is a low-power chip, built to be attractive and practical for smartphones, MIDs, tablets, and other mobile devices. The 610 can handle both LP-DDR and DDR memory, and it has a display controller capable of four simultaneous displays with a 2k x 2k resolution.This is exciting news for next year's gadgets. Manufacturers will now have another option for low-power, full HD capable processors. Expect to see the Marvell 610 in a ton of PMPs, full HD camcorders, and smartphones over the next year and change.
