Report: ARM Processors to Reach 3 GHz by 2014
According to Phys.org, GlobalFoundries and TSMC plan to release ARM processors capable of running at 3 GHz “sometime next year.”
ARM manufacturers GlobalFoundries and the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) have revealed that they plan to release ARM processors capable of running at 3 GHz “sometime next year.” These new processors will utilize a new 20 nm manufacturing process that claims to offer better power efficiency and result in less battery drain for users.
Phys.org has speculated that the launch of more capable ARM processors may help to “stave off the recent incursion” of Intel’s Bay Trail processors that appear to be approximately 30 percent faster according to recent testing. The site also noted that AMD is currently developing an “ARM competitor” that is expected to be introduced next year.
