ARM Eagle to be multi-core, 28nm

ARM president Tudor Brown at a presentation on Friday provided early details of his company's next-generation architecture for smartphones and other handhelds. Nicknamed Eagle, the processor design will focus on speed and come with a multi-core main processor, "high-end" graphics and better security against hardware-related attacks. Power use will be kept down by using GlobalFoundries' new 28 nanometer process and should get more efficient still when the assembly process shrinks to 22 nanometers.

Due partly to waiting for the improved process, Eagle isn't expected to be ready until 2013 and may only ship in 2014 as companies take time to build products.

ARM doesn't directly produce processors but instead offers reference designs that are then modified and built by others, including Samsung and recent Apple acquisition PA Semi. [via Fudzilla]
