The Mobile World Congress 2012 is going to begin in just a few days and a lot of companies are reminding us of their presence by revealing exciting information for their new products. This is also the case with Texas Instruments, which have decided to show us what kind of performance to expect from their OMAP 5 system on chip, which features two Cortex-A15 cores, manufactured by 28 nm technology and clocked only at 800 mHz.
TI OMAP 5 SoC
Despite the low clock-rate, TI’s SoC appears to be even faster than the quad-core chip, to which it’s being compared in the video. The name of that SoC is not mentioned, but according to the rumors, it’s a Tegra 3, clocked at 1.3 gHz. Both devices are using Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, so it’s a fair comparison and the clear winner is the OMAP 5. B. A.
