Texas Instruments (TI) has announced the newest addition to its OMAP4 processor platform, the next generation multi-core OMAP4470. With processing speeds of up to 1.8 GHz per core, the OMAP4470 will offer an 80 percent increase in web browsing performance, increased memory bandwidth, and support for resolutions up to QXGA (2048x1536). TI also says that the chip will support HD and liquid UIs, a first for the company.

The dedicated POWERVR SGX544 graphics core will provide 2.5 times the graphics performance of TI’s current offerings and will support DirectX based games and videos. TI says that the multiple cores—four for general processing and two for graphics performance—are designed for low-power consumption and high performance. Expect the OMAP4470 to start hitting Android devices in Q1 2012. For the complete technical mumbo-jumbo, including an explanation of each core's performance, hit the source link.
