VIA subsidiary WonderMedia is cranking out yet-another dual-core, ARM Cortex-A9 processor. The new WM8860 chip comes just a few months after the launch of the WM8880.

The new chip offers more powerful graphics and improved audio components, and support for Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

VIA WonderMedia WM8860

The WM8860 processor is a 1.2 GHz dual-core chip based on a 40nm design. It supports up to 2GB of memory and screen resolutions up to 1280 x 800 pixels, which suggests that while WonderMedia calls this a high-performance chip, it’s aimed at budget devices.

It features Mali-450 graphics, which aren’t exactly state of the art, but which are a little more powerful than the Mali-400 graphics found in earlier chips from WonderMedia.

  1. 40 nm is a rubbish. Why? Because its Overheating the device, bad work, too much power consumption. Bad devices for a bad soc. We need more 28 nm socs no overheating technology.

    1. It depends. If you plan in selling them inside 60-70$ Android Chinese smartphones they will suit just fine, and also keep the price down.
