Samsung and Intrinsity announce Hummingbird Processor

Samsung and Intrinsity have partnered to announce the fastest ARM Cortex A8 processor which uses 45 nm low power and low leakage process tech and is known as Hummingbird which delivers 2000DMIPS at 1GHz, reports newswire.

The new ARM processor is almost twice as fast and the iPhone 3GS and is extremely efficient and can run at high speed even when at a minimum supply voltage of 1.0V and thus is suitable for mobile phones.

Previous 600MHz Cortex A8 processors could deliver 720p video on the Samsung i8910 Omnia HD so we could expect to see 1080p full HD on mobile phones powered using the Hummingbird.
