Marvell Armada 610 Application Processor Brings 1080p and 3D to Mobile Devices
Marvell has unveiled a new application processor called the Armada 610 that has a gigahertz class CPU, integrated 1080p encode and decode and supports 3D graphics. The AP is designed for eReaders, MIDs, tablets, smartbooks, netbooks, smartphones, and other connected portable devices.
The use of the AP means that the devices will be able to support 3D graphics, which will be a huge growth category for mobile devices over the coming years. The AP uses Marvell Qdeo tech for the 1080p encode and decode.
“Marvell is on a mission to change the way consumers enjoy media on their mobile devices – live news and sporting events, on-demand movies, and high-end games,” said Ms. Weili Dai, Marvell's Co-founder and Vice President and General Manager of Marvell Semiconductor’s Consumer and Computing Business Unit. “We’re thinking beyond the traditional PC-laptop with entirely new entertainment experiences – HD quality live video, high performance 3D graphics, super-fast connectivity, and super-long battery life – in mobile products, such as eReaders, tablets, and smartbooks/netbooks, priced for mass consumer market adoption. Marvell's rich featured Armada 610 applications processor differentiates from other competing applications processors by offering integrated 1080p full-HD encode and decode with HDMI interface and gaming class 3D graphics while using very low power.”

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
