Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! ARM Powered Chromebook launched by Google with Samsung Exynos 5 ARM Cortex-A15 on board, $249!!!

Posted by – October 18, 2012

The day has come. The ARM Powered laptop revolution is here. Chrome OS on ARM, not just any ARM, the fastest ever ARM Cortex-A15 from Samsung, Exynos5250, 2GB RAM, 16GB Flash storage. This announcement is of course pure awesomeness. So, I guess, Google wanted to wait for ARM Cortex-A15 for what they may think to be satisfactory ARM Powered web browser OS performance. Consider this has to support all plugins, native code, OpenGL web, extensions, advanced AJAX-heavy Javascript web apps, caching of web apps for full offline sync and web acceleration on slow connections, tons of simultaneous opened tabs for everyone to feel fully comfortable!

ARM Mali-T604 in Exynos5 ARM Cortex-A15 reference tablet shown at SIGGRAPH

Posted by – August 9, 2012

Here’s Engadget’s video:

It’s the dual-core Samsung Exynos 5 that can be clocked up to 1.7Ghz with the quad-core Mali-T604 GPU. Zach Honig of Engadget writes:

ARM says its working with eight manufacturers to get the licensed tech to market as early as Q3

I think the word “market” is meant as the B2B market not yet the B2C one. I don’t think they mean consumers can buy ARM Cortex-A15 with Mali-T604 in devices already in Q3, I think they probably mean that manufacturers can buy early samples of Exynos5 with Mali-T604 in Q3 and more likely start selling mass produced devices to consumers not before next year. But who knows? Could Mali-T604 be ready to ship in ARM devices before the end of the year already?
