This shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone, but chip maker Texas Instruments has announced plans to build new processors based on the next-generation plans from ARM. The next-gen ARM Cortex A series processors are code-named as Eagle and they’ll be officially unveiled later this year.

At the moment, we don’t really know anything about the upcoming Eagle chips. If I had to guess, I’d imagine that they’ll be more powerful than current ARM-based chips while using less energy, because let’s be honest… that’s always a good bet in the mobile chip space.

TI’s ARM-based chips typically show up in smartphones and other low power electronics devices. We could also see them in netbooks or smartbooks of the future. We probably won’t see Eagle-based chips ship for another year or so.

  1. It seems like only yesterday that I got my first 1Ghz desktop machine and now we are talking about 1Ghz+ mobile chips with dual core.

    ARM really is the winner of the mobile chip wars (if there was one)… Is there even an Intel based based mobile device other than netbooks or their tablet derivatives?
