“Last month TI announced it was the first to license ARM’s next-generation Eagle core. Today, ARM is announcing the official name of that core: it’s the ARM Cortex A15.
Architectural details are light, and ARM is stating that first silicon will ship in 2012 at 32/28nm. Here’s what we do know. The Cortex A15 will be a multi-core CPU, designs can have as few as a single core but most will have 2 – 4 cores depending on their target market.”

ARM talks about the Cortex of the future
If you caught the PC Perspective Podcast live last night you would have heard Josh talk about the ARM Cortex A15, otherwise keep your eye on this spot and you can catch it once it has been posted. The recent release of their dual core Cortex A9 brings significant performance increases to mobile platforms but the A15 looks even more impressive. Starting off with Long Physical Address Extensions to give greater than 32bit addressing and moving through improvements to the cache in both size and speed, this new Cortex could allow ARM processors to power netbooks and not just mobile phones.
