Submission + - Marvell Unveils 3-core ARM CPU (

TheRaven64 writes: Ars Technica has some coverage of Marvell's new ARMADA 628 CPU. This system-on-chip includes two of Marvell's Sheeva ARM cores running at 1.5GHz and one at 628MHz, as well as an impressive GPU. Marvell bought Intel's ARM-compatible XScale line back in 2006 and has an ARM Architecture License (allowing them to make significant modifications to ARM's designs, as Qualcomm did with the Snapdragon) as a result of purchasing ASICA in 2003. This combination makes their ARM chips more interesting — if not always better — than chips like Apple's A4 or TI's OMAP series that use off-the-shelf ARM designs for the CPU core.
