According to a new report, the next generation Samsung Galaxy Tab may be powered by a dual-core Applications Processor (AP) that is based on ARM Cortex A9, codenamed Orion.
The Orion chip is a dual-core 32-nanometer processor featuring two Cortex A9 cores running at 1GHz with 32KB of data cache, 32KB instruction cache, and 1MB L2 cache. Being capable of 1080p encoding and decoding, it is five times faster than the current RM Cortex A8 Hummingbird Processor. It is expected to offer better multitasking support, full HD video playback, 3D gaming capabilities, video recording and much more. Other tablets that are expected to be powered by dual-core processors are Research In Motion’s Playbook, LG tablet and the Motorola MotoPad. We also expect the next generation Galaxy Tab to provide a 7-inch Super AMOLED screen like the Galaxy S, as we revealed a few days ago.
Are you going to wait until the next generation tablets are going to be released or are you going to jump and buy the current version of the Galaxy Tab? You might have to wait more than half a year so until then, enjoy the beautiful 1st generation Galaxy Tab!
