Zii Labs announced today, the launch of two multi-core chips to be used in mobile computing devices. The ZMS-20 (dual-core) and ZMS-40 (quad-core) run at 1.5 GHz and are ARM based SoCs. Both chips will focus on 1080p video decoding and playback, as well as 3D graphics and OpenGL Es 2.0 support.
Power to the max
Speaking on the event, Sim Wong Hoo, Chairman and CEO of Creative Technology Ltd said, “we are targeting this amazing family of ZMS-20 and the ZMS-40 Zii Stemcell media processors dead-on the explosive tablet computing market. The competitively priced ZMS-20, and the ZMS-40 with its quad Cortex-A9 cores will herald a new generation of low-cost, low-power yet high-performance tablets, mobile thin clients for cloud computing and other embedded appliances for the post-PC era.
The design and development of ZMS-40 is done, we will unleash it to ride on the up and coming new wave of tablet computing revolution. The scalable ZMS-40 will lead the way to show the world that tablet computing can be truly effective and without any compromise. With the ZMS-40, we will be able to bring the performances of tablets or other handheld devices to rival notebooks and even desktop PCs”.
The ZMS-20 and ZMS-40 will also pack in optimizations, which Zii Labs feel will benefit Honeycomb based devices.
