ZiiLabs has a track record of announcing impressive sounding processors, but they have failed for the most part at getting their chips into consumer devices. Today ZiiLabs continued that trend when they announced the “100-core” ZMS-40 system-on-a-chip (SoC), the follow-up to their “50-core” ZMS-20 that was revealed back in October.

Dual-core, quad-core or cinco-core? This week ZiiLabs decided to take advantage of the multi-core frenzy by demoing their new JAGUAR3 reference Android tablet, which sports a “50-core” processor.

Earlier this year NVIDIA unveiled and demonstrated the world’s first mobile quad-core processor at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

I’ve made no small deal about how pessimistic I am when it comes to dual-core devices. This time a year ago it was all anyone could talk about – how amazing dual-core phones were going to be, and how it would change everything. I had more than enough doubt about the giant fluffy unicorn that ... Read More »

The first dual-core phone just arrived on our doorstep from Korea and U.S. customers will be able to purchase their very own next month. If you are looking to upgrade your current Android phone (or buy your first) in the next couple of months, check the specs and make sure it has a ... Read More »
I am a fan of mobile technology. That is the reason I was drawn to purchase the T-Mobile G1 and it’s also the reason I started this blog. Over the years I’ve authored some pretty opinionated articles and have been accused of being a fanboy for HTC, T-Mobile, and now NVIDIA, but the only club ... Read More »
It’s no secret that NVIDIA is working on quad-core CPUs for mobile devices, but over the weekend a leaked slide confirmed that Tegra 3 might feature four Cortex-A9 cores running at speeds up to 1.5 GHz. Competitors have announced similar processors, like Freescale’s quad-core 1.2 GHz i.MX 6Quad and TI’s dual-core 1.5 GHz ... Read More »
