ZiiLabs dual core ZMS-20 and quad core ZMS-40‎ for Honeycomb tablets unveiled
ZiiLabs, who is owned by Creative, known for making products that are targeted at the computer audio market, along with a handful of MP3 players, has announced two new processors today.
The ZMS-20 is a dual-core 1.5GHz Cortex A9 processor which the company says is 4 times faster than the ZMS-08. The ZMS-40 on the other hand is a quad-core processor which is able to deliver a clock speed of up to 6GHz. This all sounds amazing to us. What it simply means is that the ZMS-20 and ZMS-40 are micro-size media-powerhouse processors optimized for faster processing and more effective multi-tasking for Android tablets rocking Google’s tablet-focused operating system.
Other features include: 1080p video playback at 30 frames per second, H.264, VC1, VP8, and Adobe Flash 10 are hardware accelerated, OpenGL ES 2.0 and OpenCL 1.1 support, HDMI 1.4 output, with 3D too, the ability to handle up to 1 GB of both DDR2/3 and LPDDR2, enabling hardware vendors to optimize for either cost or speed, and a whole bunch of other technical stuff that doesn’t really matter because the likelihood of you owning something with a ZiiLabs chip inside is slim and none.
With multi-core application acceleration and dynamic power management for longer battery life, the ZMS-20 delivers the efficient and high-performance platform required for the next generation of Android 3.0 based devices and beyond.
