LG to produce multicore mobile chipsets of its own, based on ARM's architecture
Not to be left out of the chipset race, LG issued a press release that it has signed a deal with the British company ARM for licensing its mobile chipset architecture, including high-performance multicore CPU and GPU designs like Cortex-A15 and Mali-T604.

This essentially puts LG as a direct competitor to Nvidia with its Tegra chipsets, Qualcomm with Snapdragon, and Samsung with Exynos, to name just the most widely used dual-core chipsets based on ARM's design, currently on the market. That is, if LG is planning on actual production, and not just licensing the tech, so it can hammer out its phone and tablet software better for ARM-based silicon.

For LG producing its own powerful chips makes much more sense, though, so we might soon have another entrant in the multicore mobile chipsets gladiator pit, which will only make the storyline more interesting. After all, LG was the first one to out a dual-core Android smartphone, with the Optimus 2X, and by all means that counts for something.

Interesting. I would love to see two korean titans slugg it out in teh cpu arena.

Samsung's Exynos chip vs LG A15!!!

On a side note, since LG is rumored to be teh one to manufacture Google's Nexus Tab? It is going to be sporting LG's very cpu?
I'd rather want a Nexus Tab with nvidia tegra 3 quadcore than a dual core sporting under its hood..

Excellent point. I would love for it to have that Tegra 3 Quad-Core inside that beast of a tablet. Now if LG makes a kickass Quad-Core I wouldn't have a problem with it. I just really want the Nexus Tab to be the first Quad-Core tablet. I think I will hold off & wait for the Nexus Tab to see what it is all about!
