Texas Instruments (TI) announced a set of heterogeneous processors that they believe will offer among the best performance per watt in the industry. In this case, the chipmaker glued an ARM CPU and DSP together on the same die, offering a low-power SoC with an impressive number of FLOPS.
At the International Solid-State Circuits Conference next week, Intel will provide an in-depth look at Intel’s Nehalem architecture as well as the chip maker’s plans for new types of system-on-a-chip processors.
