Samsung releases the Exynos5422, their fastest yet Octa-core ARM Processor, with optimized HMP Heterogeneous Multi-processing support with all 8 cores working simultaneously at up to 2.1Ghz reaching something like 20 thousand on Antutu benchmark (which is a lot). The performance for ARM Chromebooks may be extremely high. The Exynos5422 may have more than double the CPU performance over the Exynos5250 of previous generation Chromebooks (according to some online benchmarks for the dual-core Exynos5250 in Nexus 10 compared with the Antutu number Samsung shows for their Octa core Exynos5422 Antutu result), this should provide for some extremely powerful new Samsung ARM Powered Chromebooks! Samsung also announced the 6-core Exynos5260 with 2 big ARM Cortex-A15 cores and 4 LITTLE ARM Cortex-A7 cores, a design that may feed well for the mid-range market perhaps also better for Android Smartphone usage scenarios while the Exynos5422 may be best on Chromebooks that may need higher burst performance. The Samsung Exynos5422 is going to ship in the newly announced $399 Samsung Chromebook 2 with a 13.3" FHD display, 4GB RAM, 16GB Flash and an ultra-thin and light form factor for a laptop.
MHL demonstrates the amazing Sony Xperia Z2 with 4K output through MHL 3.0 with HDCP 2.2 content protection (required by Hollywood for 4K playback), then they show a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 reference board with Silicon Image Sil8620 doing MHL 3.0 outputting to a MHL 3.0 Docking Board with the SIlicon Image SiI9394 MHL 3.0-to-HDMI 2.0 bridge IC. What's also really awesome is they can stream fast data through the USB Host ports on the MHL 3.0 Dock and back through the phone. This is absolutely awesome and I have been waiting for this type of 600mbitps bandwidth on USB Host to be added to MHL, thus potentially using Smartphones as desktops and laptops when docked in desktop docks and laptop docks like the Acer Extend featured in my other MHL 3.0 video about productivity: http://armdevices.net/2014/02/28/mhl-for-productivity-acer-extend-mediatek-mt6592-mhl-optimizations-and-dellroku-mhl-hdmi-sticks/

The BSC9132 is a highly integrated device that targets evolving microcell, picocell, and enterprise-femto base station applications. The BSC9132 device combines two e500 cores, built on Power Architecture technology, and two StarCore SC3850 cores with MAPLE-B2P baseband acceleration processing elements to address the need for a high-performance, low-cost, integrated solution that handles all required processing layers without the need for an external device except for an RF transceiver or, in a micro base station configuration, a host device that handles the L3/L4 and handover between sectors.
With primary target air interfaces for LTE-FDD/TDD and WCDMA (HSPA+), the BSC9132 programmable device supports the performance and cost requirements of up to 20 MHz single sector LTE-FDD/TDD by handling 150 Mbps downlink and 75 Mbps uplink rates, 5 MHz HSPA+ by handling 42 Mbps downlink and 11.5 Mbps uplink rates for up to 64 simultaneous users, or WiMAX at 10 MHz. The BSC9132 supports multimode operation that enables it to process LTE-FDD/TDD and HSPA+ users simultaneously.
