TI shows off OMAP 1080p video streaming over Wi-Fi

Today we've been given an early look into Texas Instruments OMAP 4470 and OMAP 5 processor and their plans for WiFi video streaming. Using WiLink connectivity and the OMAP platform TI is able to stream full 1080p video to a capable device, and still use the device for gaming or anything else at the same time. Once they gain a Miracast and WiFi Alliance certification we can expect to see this in their upcoming devices.

New Galaxy Nexus spotted in Benchmark tests

For now we are going to chalk this up as just a rumor or most likely some spoofed information. What we are seeing is apparently some benchmarks ran of the popular NenaMark2 suite. What makes this unique is the device is being listed as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus -- only with a new TI OMAP 4470 processor with much, much better graphics and a possible speed of around 1.8 GHz. Interesting indeed. Is Samsung about to pull a Motorola and drop another device so soon?

Texas Instruments Announces 1.8 GHz Dual Core Chip

Texas Instruments silicon has been a bit scarce in top tier Android devices in 2011. In fact almost all of the uber-phones of 2011 so far are running on either Qualcomm Snapdragons or Nvidia's Tegra 2. TI is looking to change that with the announcement of their latest OMAP ARM processor, the OMAP 4470. The dual core processor is said to launch in the first half of 2012.
