The company has now announced they will be pairing these processors with Vivanteâ€™s GC-Series Graphics Processing Units to enable high performance, including managing 1080p HD resolutions.
Marvell said their ARMADA processors will be power efficient as they were built on the new 55 nanometer process. Vivanteâ€™s GPU technology now combined with Marvellâ€™s CPU power will enable PC-class performance and quality at HD 1080p for applications like Adobe Flash technology, Microsoft Silverlight, Blu-ray functionality and engaging 3D games across a wide variety of platforms including Microsoft Windows Embedded CE and Windows Mobile. The GPU delivers low-power, high-performance graphics conformant with the DirectFB, OpenGL ES 2.0/1.1 and OpenVG 1.1 API standards.
Vivante expects to see its GPU incorporated in devices by early 2010.
Marvell has also recently announced support for Wi-Fi direct standard.
