Marvell has announced a triple-core tablet for tablets and smartphones.


The company's Armada 628 triple-core chip has two cores running at 1.5GHz each and it's third core running at 624Mhz. The chip also has integrated graphics that will allow it to play 3D high-definition video.

The Armada 628 chip is based on the Arm processor design. The two 1.5GHz cores are for "high-performance computing, to run applications over multiple cores" while the third core is optimized for low-power computing.

Marvell also added the chip will be able to provide up to 10 hours of full 1080p HD video or 140 hours of music.... all from a single charge.

As a bonus - it also supports the USB 3.0 interface.
