• Texas Instruments confirms OMAP 4430 inside BlackBerry PlayBook


    Going on at CES, the guys of BGR got Texas Instruments to take the time to give a comprehensive overview of some of its OMAP 4 projects. The OMAP 4 platform is incredibly powerful, with immense hardware acceleration providing a haven for offloading graphics and other traditionally CPU-intensive tasks off the actual processor. Some of the topics covered were: the incredible innovation in the video conferencing and 3D-use arenas, 4-way - 720p video conferencing between 4 mobile devices, implementation of mobile 3D technology. Currently, production devices utilizing TI’s newest technology are sporting OMAP chips at a ceiling of 1GHz, but by year’s end we should see that bumped up to a healthy 1.5GHz. The newer chips will be identical in dimension the current offerings, allowing for a processor upgrade path that won’t require manufacturers to redesign their basic architecture in order to cram in the new chipset.
