Written by Slobodan Simic

Including the quad-core ZMS-40

ZiiLABS, the mobile device chip child from Creative, has made some bold claims and stirred some attention back when it was introduced to public, but its chips are yet to find a way into a more serious device. Hopefully that will change as ZiiLABS has announced its two new high-performance chips for "next-gen" tablets, the 1.5GHz dual Cortex-A9 ZMS-20 and the quad Cortex-A9 1.5GHz ZMS-40.

In addition to those famous Cortex-A9 cores, ZiiLABS has squeezed in 96 Stemcell media processing cores in the ZMS-40 while the ZMS-20 will have to do with 48 of those. For now, ZiiLABS is promising that these two will bring 1080p video playback, impressive performance with OpenGL ES 2.0 3D graphics, HD video calling, support for Flash with HW acceleration and dynamic power management that should provide decent battery life for a device that has an ZiiLABS chip in it.

The ZMS-20 will also feature HDMI 1.4 support for 3D ouptuts, 64-bit memory interface, quad video controllers for 24-bit display output, Xtreme Fidelity X-Fi support, 256-bit AES and support for up to 1GB of either DDR2, LPDDR2 or DDR3 memory.

Since the ZMS-20 is already sampling, there should be a tablet or two at this years Computex early next month. The ZMS-20 is scheduled to start shipping in Q3 while, although it wasn't detailed, the ZMS-40 might arrive sometimes in Q4.

You can check out more details regarding the ZMS-20 here.
