ARM unveils Cortex-A15 Mpcore Processor
ARM unveiled Cortex-A15 Mpcore Processor to dramatically accelerate capabilities of mobile, consumer and infrastructure applications. Unprecedented levels of performance, power-efficiency, and technology leadership accelerate industry momentum to deliver extraordinarily innovative products.

ARM today introduced the Cortex-A15 MPCore processor that delivers a 5x performance improvement over today's advanced smartphone processors, within a comparable energy footprint. In advanced infrastructure applications the Cortex-A15 processor running at up to 2.5GHz will enable highly scalable solutions within constantly shrinking energy, thermal and cost budgets. The Cortex-A15 processor is available for licensing today and is targeted at manufacture in 32nm, 28nm, and future geometries.

As the latest addition to ARM's Cortex-A family of processors, the Cortex-A15 MPCore processor will enable a new and vast array of products ranging from next-generation smartphones, tablets, large-screen mobile computing and high-end digital home entertainment devices through to wireless basestations and enterprise infrastructure products.

The debut of the Cortex-A15 MPCore processor enhances the ARM Cortex-A Series of processors by providing the electronics industry with the broadest range of software and feature-set compatible processors. The Cortex-A15 extends the capabilities of the ARM Cortex-A Series by adding efficient hardware support for OS virtualization, soft-error recovery, larger memory addressability and system coherency. While remaining true to ARM's power-efficient design heritage, the Cortex-A15 MPCore processor brings a new level of performance scalability as well as a feature set that enables ARM Partners to address a range of innovative and traditional markets with a single processor architecture.

The Cortex-A15 also enjoys full application compatibility with all of the other highly acclaimed Cortex-A processors. This enables immediate access to an established developer and software ecosystem including Android, Adobe Flash Player, Java Platform Standard Edition (Java SE), JavaFX, Linux, Microsoft Windows Embedded Compact 7, Symbian and Ubuntu, along with more than 700 ARM Connected Community members providing applications software, hardware and software development tools, middleware and SoC design services.

The Cortex-A15 MPCore processor will be supported by specifically optimized ARM Physical IP that was developed jointly with the processor. These optimizations enable rapid development of leadership physical implementations, initially targeting 32nm and 28nm technologies with a roadmap extending to 20nm.

The processor is also supported by a broad range of ARM technology including the AMBA 4 compliant CoreLink system IP, CoreSight debug and trace IP, Mali Graphics, and a robust set of development tools. This technology is complemented by a broad range of SoC and software design solutions, tools and services from the ARM Connected Community ecosystem to provide ARM Partners with a smooth path through the development, verification and production of full function, compelling devices while significantly reducing time-to-market.

New rumoured N9 technical specifications appeared
On several blogs some new tech specifications of the upcoming Meego-based Nokia N9 have just appeared. Among others, they mention screen resolution of 1280x720 (i.e. matching the HD 720p video size, letting one view 720p video content without any resizing) @ 4.0 inches, ARM Cortex-A8 1 GHz processor and SGX540 GPU, 512 MB SDRAM (finally something that would prevent heavy swapping to kick in as early as on 'stuffed' N900 and badly affect the performance), 1 GB NAND (enough space on rootfs not to have move certain system components from there to slower eMMC at the cost of speed), 64 GB of built-in storage space + support for 32 GB memory cards, HSPA+, Bluetooth 3.0, WLAN b/g/n, HDMI mini connector, USB OTG, 12 Megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording @ 30 fps and more. More details here. Let's hope that these specs are at least half true...
