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.”
