Manufacturers of MIDs, portable media players, e-readers, and tablets will be soon able to reap the benefits of Marvell’s new ARMADA 610 chipset.

The new design incorporates a gigahertz-class ARM v7 compatible CPU, 3D graphics (including Open GL ES 1.1/2.0 and Open VG support), as well as  full 1080p processing. On top of that, ARMADA 610 supports HDMI and USB 2.0 and up to 4 simultaneous displays at resolutions up to 2000×2000.

Marvell is also providing a reference platform called Bonnell which combines the 610 with wifi and cellular connectivity options. The chipset is compatible with Linux (including Android), Windows Mobile and Windows Embedded CE.

Early samples are have been provided to manufacturers, but there’s no telling when we’ll see the first devices on retail shelves – or even what form they’ll take.
