Samsung chips promise smartphone, netbook improvements

Better 3D UIs and higher calibre gaming

Application security programs and practises

Samsung has designed two 1GHz application processors, which it claimed will deliver PC grade performance and low power consumption to smartphones and netbooks.

Although both ARM-based Cortex-A8 processors have the same clock speed, the S5PC110 processor is targeted at “small form-factor connected devices” - such as multimedia intensive smartphones.

The S5PV210 is aimed at “portable computing devices” – including netbooks demanding high performance and design flexibility, Samsung said.

Both will supposedly enable a longer gadget battery life, Samsung added, while enabling real-time applications - such as web browsers - to run more smoothly.

A powerful 3D graphics engine onboard both processors will also assist sophisticated 3D user interfaces – such as LG’s S-Class UI – and “high-calibre games”, the company promised.

But if gaming isn’t your thing, then both versions also have integrated 1080p codec engines to support 30fps video playback and recording.

Samples of both processors will be available in December, but Samsung hasn’t let slip when either will first appear in a smartphone or netbook. ®
