ARM Expects Mobile Phones with Dual-Core Processors Next Year.

ARM Expects Mobile Phones with Dual-Core Processors Next Year.

Dual-core central processing units (CPUs) were considered a breakthrough in the personal computer industry back in 2005. In 2010, dual-core chips, albeit powered by processors with different micro-architecture, are set to enter the market of mobile phones, according to ARM, a leading developer of processors for portable electronics.

“We don¡¦t need silly GHz speeds. With our dual-core A9, we can get two times the performance, without the speed draining the battery, so by the time you get home your phone is dead,¡¨ said Rob Coombs, director of mobile solutions for ARM, in an interview with TechRadar web-site.

Mr. Coombs added that ARM hopes that actual implementers would introduce dual-core processors for mobile phones sometime in 2010, but still, delays to 2011 were possible.
