MediaTek MT8135 big.LITTLE ARM Cortex-A15/A7 released!

Posted by Charbax – July 29, 2013

MediaTek presents what they claim to be today's fastest Tablet SoC, using Dual-core ARM Cortex-A15 with Dual-core ARM Cortex-A7 in big.LITTLE configuration with a new SGX6 based GPU.

How soon we'll see MT8135 based tablets on the market? And does MediaTek also prepare a big.LITTLE for smartphones? I don't know.

MediaTek introduces industry leading tablet SoC -MT8135, which integrates ARM's big.LITTLE™ processing subsystem and a PowerVR™ Series6 GPU from Imagination Technologies.

MediaTek MT8135 fulfills the most demanding CPU and GPU usage scenarios, whether it is heavy web downloading, hardcore gaming, high-quality premium video viewing or rigorous multitasking, while maintaining the utmost power efficiency.

In this video, you'll see how MediaTek MT8135 outperforms today's tablet solutions.

Ubuntu on phone, tablets, latest demos

Posted by m@ddy – July 29, 2013

Here's Ubuntu OS for phones built on Android BSP (Board Support Package). They can bring on various phone devices in very short time. Ubuntu OS makes playing videos easier. Ubuntu User interface is very sleek. Through Preview window you can see the videos while playing games or working on any other app. Ubuntu OS runs on different engine no need of engines like JAVA, Dolby. Ubuntu applications written by CUTE support HTML5. It's different software architecture. Ubuntu provides complete ecosystem also provides SDK system for developers they can use CUTE create their own apps. So that Simple app can run both PC and Phone. Ubuntu OS runs on high end phones, require powerful CPU capable to run both Android and Ubuntu OS at the same time. To do this optimization required of phone feature complete like you can write SMS from desktop in all languages. Users don't need to have other laptop or PC to communicate between Android and Ubuntu. It's an Unique experience run Both OS on One Phone. For now Android apps can't run on Ubuntu. It is possible only after optimzing aspects like graphics. Android apps for Touch. but running CUTE apps is different thing.They can easily Ubantu open source can be write on Android code.there is lot of room for optimization like display performance VD development finally putting them together is easy concept. Ubuntu lowered the basic effort to put Ubuntu on Android. BSP drivers are almost same so effort for OEM is easier to adapt Ubuntu on their hardware. Last year Ubuntu was on OMAP4. Now on qualcomm S4. Wrote with "Ubuntu control app". User can control Ubuntu session by phone only. If click on shut down Ubuntu control app the phone still can work on Android.

To run Ubuntu 1GB RAM. 1.5Ghz Dualcore CPU are minimum requirements. Aiming to different market segment.
People who think that Android is not sufficient they can turn on Ubuntu. Android is designed for small phones where as Ubuntu they design for large screens. Legacy of Linux is for big screens and multitasking. The main focus is running Ubuntu on multiple device like phone, tablet, TV and many more.

ARM Processors to Run at 3GHz by next year

Posted by Kevin Sadria – July 27, 2013

ARM based processor manufacturers Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) and GlobalFoundries  have announced that they plan to release ARM processors capable of running at 3 GHz “sometime next year”.

A new report cites that the game doesn’t end here. Processors clocked as high as 3 GHz are headed our way in 2014. Performance is not all about clock speeds, but if the current 28nm manufactured processors are able to clock in at 2.3 GHz, a process shrink to 20nm, expected to happen early in 2014, will certainly help increase clock speeds while consuming lesser power and die size at the same time.

The new 20nm node at TSMC and GlobalFoundries is expected to offer a 25% decrease in power consumption, allow up to 30% faster clock speeds and up to 1.9 times better transistor density with low leakage. That means more transistors in a lesser die, leading to more powerful processors.

These new products will bring the whole variety of technology devices to the Next Level but it depends on the user if device processor is a key consideration for them.

MediaTek MT6592 octa-core processor announced

Posted by Charbax – July 27, 2013

MediaTek MT6592 is announced, as far as I understand it's 8-cores of ARM Cortex-A7 with ARM Mali graphics?

‪中文(繁體)‬: 位於台灣台北市內湖區內湖路一段91巷「太陽科技廣場」C棟的聯發科技台...

So this MediaTek MT6592 does not use big.LITTLE combining ARM Cortex-A15 and A7 but only uses 8 ARM Cortex-A7 cores?

Basically, the MT6592 and the MT6588 will be the new high-end offers, the MT6589 becomes the new mid-end and the MT6582 and MT6572 will be the company's low-end chips.
Just as its predecessors The MediaTek MTK MT6592  is built on ARM A7 architecture and can be clocked from 1.7 to 2.0 GHz. This  pure 8 core processor chipset supports full HD recording and playback.
According to some leaked benchmarks this MT6592 SoC supposedly performs quite fast?

This may be MediaTek's processor for Android 5.0 to be released.

A document by MediaTek on this announcement is available here: http://www.mediatek.com/_en/Event/201307_TrueOctaCore/MediaTekTrueOcta-CorePositionPaper.pdf

Watch me talk about the $35 Google Chromecast HDMI Stick Chromestick on a Hangout for Chromecastcast.com

Posted by Charbax – July 25, 2013

You can watch these 49 minutes of me being interviewed by Paul Terry Walhus in a Hangout On Air for his new blog that's going to be at http://chromecastcast.com (not yet launched) where I talk about what I think the Google Chromecast is, which ARM Powered hardware I expect it to have (I thought maybe Rockchip but it's Marvell), how it may be unlocked for a Chromebox mode (Micro-USB Host to Hub/Ethernet/RF), how this Chrome OS device may support the Chrome browser, Android apps and Games natively instead of only being used for streaming video and audio and more.

Google launches $35 ARM Powered Chromecast Chrome OS on a Stick to stream media to HDTV

Posted by Charbax – July 24, 2013

I guess Google reads my Google+ feed.. on April 16th I suggested:

$50 Chrome stick would be nice. ARM Cortex-A15 on a HDMI stick running Chrome OS. I'm just saying.

Not sure if the $35 Chromecast Google HDMI Stick has an ARM Cortex-A15 processor in it though, what is the ARM Processor inside of the new Google Chromestick? Is Google using the Quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 Rockchip RK3188? Tegra4? Something from Qualcomm?

Which ARM Processor is being used? Can it run a full Chrome OS On ARM also? USB Host (to Ethernet/RF/Hub) supported?

Can the Chromecast Chromestick run a full Chrome OS included for free? Why didn't Google explain how to "unlock" the Chromestick to display a full ARM Powered Chrome OS on the TV?

I look forward to Chrome OS on ARM Powered HDMI Sticks, let it not just revolutionize Video-on-demand, let the $35 Google stick also be the x86 Wintel desktop killer.

1. My guess is Chromecast has MHL support, can otherwise get charge from MicroUSB, I wonder if a MicroUSB hub can allow for Ethernet connectivity on Chromecast.

2. I wonder how video games and apps are going to run natively on the Chromecast.

3. Does it support Bluetooth 4.0, RF and USB Host for wireless keyboards and mice to use the Chromecast as a Chrome OS desktop without a remote device?
