PalmInfoCenter announces the release of a new family of processors for mobile devices. The new PXA270 line of XScale processors include “Intel Wireless MMX” technology, which has little to do with wireless and everything to do with 3d graphics and video. Also on the chip is “Wireless Intel SpeedStep” technology, which will hopefully prolong battery life by underclocking the chip when more horsepower is not needed. There is also a fair amount of on-chip security and cryptography. Expect this new line of processors to scale from about 300 to over 600 MHz.
To compliment the new line of processors is the 2700G “Mobile Multimedia Accelerator” with lots of codecs and up to 1280×1024 resoltuion.
