A dual core at 1.4 GHz for Panasonic TV

Panasonic just announced a new SoC (System on a Chip, chip all-in-one) for the TV brand, the MN2WS0220. Under this name hides an ARM SoC that seems good enough, especially with the integration of CPU Cortex A9, the current high-end ARM. This SoC "UniPhier" therefore reflects two Cortex A9 at 1.4 GHz, a high frequency component that can decode Full HD video and a GPU that supports 3D acceleration.

The latter is not named, but sources indicate that the GPU is "home" at ARM, Mali, already used in chips from Samsung Exynos. Panasonic Announces 40% less consumption compared to older chips, something that lacks interest because the consumption of a TV is not really impacted by the processor ...

In fact, the chip from Panasonic could well find its place in a smartphone or tablet and the company announces it will of course be integrated into "smart TV" devices that allow surfing the Internet, why not , play ... Availability planned for later this year.
