ARM, Globalfoundries outline 28nm SoC platform

ARM and Globalfoundries have released details on their upcoming system-on-a-chip (SoC) platform, which they say will combine "PC-class performance" with the portability and longevity of smartphones.
The companies revealed the details on Monday at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Their SoC platform is based on ARM's Cortex-A9 processor and Globalfoundries' 28nm manufacturing process, and will be used in smartphones, tablets and smartbooks.
The 28nm manufacturing process will allow devices built on the platform to have 40 percent more computing performance, 30 percent less power consumption and 100 percent greater battery life than devices built using existing 45nm processes, the companies said.
