BEIJING, CHINA: Nufront, a leading Chinese high-tech company, and ARM announced the availability of Nufront’s first computer system chip NuSmart 2816, a 40nm system-on-chip that integrates a full computer system including a dual-core CortexTM -A9 MPCore implementation at 2GHz.
With NuSmart 2816, Nufront is targeting ultra-thin laptop and All-in-One desktop markets, as well as netbook and tablet markets.
NuSmart 2816 is the world’s first chip to integrate a 2GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor, multi-core 2D/3D graphics processor, 64bit DDR2/3-1066 memory controller, 1080p multi-format video engine, SATA2 controller, USB2, Ethernet, together with general I/O controllers.
By leveraging the multi-layer hybrid interconnection technology, multi-level fine grain power management technology and advanced 40nm manufacture process, NuSmart 2816 is very energy efficient consuming less than two watts when running at 1.6GHz.
“We are seeing the computing landscape evolve with capabilities emerging from new and different areas,” said Tudor Brown, president, ARM. “Nufront is an excellent example of the pioneering approach to addressing existing computing markets with innovative products.”
