Broadcom Plans Netbook Device
- 0 Comments
The company may have also licensed ARM Cortex A9 multicore processor technology in order to implement the Media Accelerator. If their chips are widely implemented in netbooks or MIDs the results could be devices with stronger, cheaper media capabilities.
The fact that the Broadcom Enhanced Media Accelerator is based on ARM architecture means we can also expect it to use less energy than products from Intel, VIA, or AMD. However, most major Windows OSes won’t work on ARM devices.
