New low power multi-core processors announced by Freescale

New low power multi-core processors announced by Freescale
Freescale has been able to place its processors in 11 Android tablets and up to 23 Freescale flavored tablets could be displayed at CES in a few days. Besides tablets, the company's chip sets are used in eReaders like the Amazon Kindle, and in navigation devices like the Ford SYNC. But there is no question that Freescale is hoping that its new processors become more widely used in tablets.

Freescale has just added to its lineup a number of low power i.MX.6 single, dual and quad ARM Cortex-A9 cores running at up to 1.2 GHz each. While the homemade Hummingbird processor on the Samsung Galaxy S can process 90 million triangles per second, Freescale claims that its new chips can process 200 million triangles per second. The new processors are expected to be sampled on devices later this year which means that if you're thinking quad core, better think 2012.

Some of the features of the i.MX.6 series include 3D video playback in HD and Videoconferencing in 1080p HD. Check out the leaked slideshot below for more of what this series offers.
