  1. Only a few months after unveiling an updated version of the OMAP 4 SoC, Texas Instrument has unveiled the OMAP 5 mobile platform. The latest chip features two Cortex-A15 processing cores running at 2GHz and "transforms the concept of mobile," according to TI. Exaggerated or not, the Corex-A15 is ARM's fastest architecture to date with roughly 50% more performance per clock than the popular A9 inside OMAP 4 and products such as Nvidia's Tegra 2, so you can expect some solid improvements.

    put one on a pico-ITX motherboard format, and I could have field day with one of these.
  4. With things like Chrome and Windows on ARM coming, that is the idea!
    More capabilities than your PC or laptop and you can also take it with you
    in your pocket.

    Impressive spec sheet indeed. I bet Nvidia's next generation Tegra SoC will just as impressive.
