ZiiLabs intros ZMS-20, ZMS-40 tablet chips

ZiiLabs this week announced the upcoming release of its latest processors, the dual-core ZMS-20 and quad-core ZMS-40. The former is much closer to production, and has a 1.5GHz ARM Cortex-A9 at its core. The company says this chip is four times faster than its previous flagship offering, the ZMS-08. Both the ZMS-20 and ZMS-40 are optimized for Android 3.0 tablets with HD video playback.

The ZMS-40 can scale up to 6GHz, ZiiLabs said. It would also be capable of providing up to 100 processor cores.

The ZMS-20 will have the ability to play back 1080p videos, support OpenGL ES 2.0 3D graphics, handle HD video calling, and play Adobe Flash Player support. It would also be compatible with DDR3 and LPDDR2 memory, along with HDMI 1.4 and OpenCL. It will be released alongside a full-blown Android Tablet Platform that includes the SDK for Android, customizable or white label ID tablet designs, certification and conformation.

The ZMS-20 is now sampling and will ship in the summer of this year. More details on the ZMS-40 will be released at a later time.

    I will do my full research but...

    stem cell computing reminds me of IBM's cell computing, it will deliver but with a lot of 'unusual' effort, we need better 'ARM's and maybe better 'Atom's but not 'cell's and 'stem-cell's. And we definitely need better development tools.

    The only way to test 'stemcell's is...

    take a project. Say 'flac' implementation (do not do this one specifically, surprise them with something new like WebM or FLV) and let you do it on 'stemcell's with their help. The truth will come out, as it always does.
