The excitement of processor development is switching more and more to smartphones as we are seeing substantial progress several times every year in this product category. Samsung today said that it will be ready to introduce its first dual-core processor for smartphones, tablets and netbooks in the fourth quarter of this year. Codenamed Orion, the chip integrates two variants of the ARM Cortex A9 architecture that run at a clock speed of 1 GHz. If Samsung’s claims hold up, then the application processor should be able to run demanding applications much more efficiently and reduce the overall power consumption when compared to today’s CPUs.
