The mobile market goes through pretty radical upgrades in performance at least once per year. With it, numerous mobile devices are refreshed and distributed across the world. And while one can easily get stuck in a “waiting” cycle, waiting for the next big advancement that always comes, we feel that waiting for Texas Instruments next-gen OMAP 5 platform would be a wait worth enduring.
An eyes-on demo of TI’s OMAP 5 platform was captured by Slashgear, and shows just how much power the OMAP 5 platform has on tap. The most impressive demo had a spinning carousel of 1080p video feeds running at 60 fps. Mind you, the entire thing was buttery smooth — impressive to say the least. Other performance demos included benchmarks from the likes of GLBenchmark 2.5 and your standard browser rendering tests. Needless to say, the OMAP 5 platform excelled and beat every other competitor by at least a few percentage points, many times more.
Specs for OMAP 5:
- 28nm process
- dual-core Cortex A15 arrangement
- dual PowerVR SGX544MP graphics cores
Luckily we won’t have to wait too long. TI hopes to begin slapping these newfangled chips into gadgets by the end of 2012.
