dual-core processors within Android smartphones, yet this bit of news makes them less appealing. What's better than 2 cores? Not 4, but 100! ZiiLabs has managed to incorporate 96 "StemCell Media Processing" cores to work alongside the four ARM Cortex A9 cores.
ZiiLABS ZMS-20 chips debuted back in May of this year and are aimed at use in tablets running Android. Originally, they were specifically for Android 3.0 tablets, but a new video has surfaced on ARM Devices that shows a ZMS-20-based reference tablet running the coming Android 4.0 ICS operating system. If you have forgotten what the chip is, the ZMS-20 is a 1.5GHz ARM Cortex A9 MPcore processor that supports 1080p video playback, OpenGL ES 2.0 3D graphics, and more.
Toshiba Excite but these guys look to beat them all with this latest release. Measuring in at just 7.4mm thick for the thinnest model and 8.1mm for the larger quad-core version, yes I said quad-core -- Details below.
