OMAP 5 smart multicore processor vs. quad-core ARM Cortex-A9

Sometimes less really is more. Check out the Web page loading time between TI's OMAP™ 5 smart multicore processor, featuring two ARM® Cortex™-A15 at 800MHz and specialized cores and accelerators, compared to a commercial device powered by a quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor at 1.3GHz. The OMAP 5 processor-based device handily beats the quad-core based device, in rendering the web pages while downloading videos and playing an MP3 file! Stop by TI's booth at Mobile World Congress in Hall 8, stand 8A84 to see the OMAP 5 platform in action.

With everyone trying to build up excitement around their devices with Mobile World Congress kicking off next week, Texas Instruments has just released an impressive video demo today. With quad-cores getting the spotlight lately Qualcomm and TI have been showing off their latest dual-core platforms and that is exactly what we have today.

This video below shows the TI OMAP 5 against a quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor that’s presumably the Tegra 3. The Tegra 3 is four A9 chips mashed together and the new TI OMAP 5 platforms is actually their newest multi-core technology of two A15 processors working seamlessly together. Qualcomm recently released something similar although only benchmark results of their new S4 platform that is quite similar to the TI OMAP 5. They also pitted their processor against the Tegra 3, showing us that obviously both of these companies are a little worried — and they should be.
The video shows the two tablets downloading videos, playing an MP3, and running through 20 pages of EEMBC’s BrowsingBench and more. See it below for yourself. A quick note the TI OMAP 5 is two A15 cores at 800 MHz and two Cortex M4s along with a SGX544 MP2 graphics. The other feature a 1.3 GHz quad-core Cortex-A9 processor.
