ARM has released some details of its forthcoming 2.5GHz Cortex A15 processor, at an event in San Francisco on Wednesday.
The chip, previously code-named Eagle, will be built in 32nm and 28nm processes by IBM, GlobalFoundries, and Samsung. The core is superscalar, capable of running multiple instructions through a pipeline, and ARM says that it will perform up to five times faster than the current ARM 9 architecture.
The company said it would be used in "superphones" (high-performance smartphones), home entertainment, small servers, and wireless infrastructure, in one- to eight-core configurations and beyond.
