With the support of USB 3.0 could lead to smartphones and tablets with USB ports for faster data transfers with other devices as well. The chip is made using a 32-nanometer manufacturing process, similar to the latest Exynos dual and quad-core chips based on Cortex A9. Qualcomm based companies are already started having chips made using the 28-nanometer process.
According to the report, ARM said it expects the first Cortex-A15 devices to come out early next year. Texas Instruments being a Samsung’s rival already announced OMAP 5430 and 5432 chips based on Cortex-A15 and also shown the prototype tablet running an OMAP 5000-series processor.
