OMAP 5 can address 8GB of memory

Written by Fuad Abazovic

In 28nm in fall of 2012

The guys from Texas Instruments believe that upcoming quad cores might have an issue to feed all cores with memory data.

Current OMAP 4 chips have dual channel memory that is supposed to be dominant to competition memory solutions and Texas Instruments wants to carry on with this dominance. The company told Fudzilla that next generation 28nm platform, scheduled for 2012 release will be able to address as much as 8GB memory.

You are lucky if your current phone or tablet supports and have 1GB of RAM, and OAMP 5 and other competing solutions scheduled for release in late 2012 should probably be able to address as much.

Applications will become more serious and the Jxx version of Google’s Android, the one that comes after Ice Cream Sandwich should be able to work battery with larger memory size. Unfortunately this all only happens in late 2012, a year from now, but maybe the competition, mainly Qualcomm and Nvidia might come up with similar memory capabilities a bit earlier.

The 28nm process is slowly becoming available, and it is realistic to expect some of the 28nm mobile ARM based chips even in 1H 2012.

OMAP is the only processor blessed by google Ice Cream Sandwich S.O.

But any from Samsung(apple), QUALCOM, marvell, TI, will do better job than turdgra.

You really are an nvidia hating troll. Samsung and apple do NOT sell their chips to other phone manufactures.
Accept it or not, TI, Qualcomm and nvidia are each others' competitors. Even samsung has a tegra 2 based phone, galaxy Z(R), an OMAP phone, galaxy SL, and a snapdragon one, galaxy S Plus.

Same goes to you MrScary.

Nvidia's future in the mobile sector isn't bright, trust me on this one. Tegra 3 will be a big fail.
@godrilla, what about power consumption. And it doesn't really matter if it has 100 cores if they don't perform at a supreme level, and they wont.

In fact they do: samsumg builds up A5 in it's fabs for apple, and apple pays them back suing about pattents.

Good job on missing the point completely.

EDIT: OK, you were joking. My bad.
