ZiiLABS latest system-on-a-chip is crammed full of features: 1080p playback, 24fps encoding, HD video conferencing, OpenGL ES 2.0 support, an integrated HDMI controller, X-Fi audio and Flash acceleration. All combined with a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8. Of course, there’s a catch.
We don’t know the expected price range yet. Could a company like Creative really undersell the likes of Intel or Nvidia?
That question aside and despite Creative specifically ruling out putting it into smartphones, chips like the ZMS-08 will definitely bring higher performance to lower-power devices and seem worth at least a bit of excitement. [Engadget]
