Marvell unveils a 1.5GHz tri-core application processor that includes 3D graphics, USB 3.0 and 1080p video playback for targeting apllications such as smartphones, tablets and other mobile applications. Marvell claims that the ARMADA 628 is a full SoC with three high-performance ARM-compliant CPU cores functioning as the first commercially available heterogeneous, multi-core, applications processor.

Two of the cores are designed for high-performance symmetric multi-processing while the third is optimised for ultra-low-power and routine tasks while acting as a system management processor to monitor and scale power and performance. The ARMADA 628 also features high-speed USB 3.0.

Marvell said the tri-core processor also has six additional processing engines for 3D graphics, 1080p video encode/decode, ultra-high fidelity audio, advanced cryptography, and digital photo data processing.

The ARMADA 628 can play more than 10 hours of full 1080p HD video or 140 hours of music on a single charge, the company added.
