Can handle 1080p if it feels like it


Renesas
Technology has started sampling its latest ARM-based chip, the 45nm SH-Mobile APE4, built around ARM's Cortex A8 architecture.

The new chip should deliver clocks in excess of 1GHz and offer 1080p decoding. It's equipped with Imagination's PowerVR SGX2 graphics engine capable of supporting WXGA+ displays with a PAL/NTSC encoder and an HDMI transmitter. The CPU also features two USB 2.0 controllers and 3 SD host controllers.

Renesas hopes to see the new CPU in mobile phones and mobile internet devices, but we're guessing it might be a good choice for smartbook makers. Samsung and ZiiLabs have already announced 1GHz ARM processors and the market for more powerful, HD capable ARM chips seems to be there, although we haven't seen any in actual products just yet.
