RIM's BlackBerry Playbook Confirmed To Have TI's OMAP4430 Dual-Core 1GHz CPU

Labels: , , , ,

Someone has finally come out and confirmed what's powering the RIM BlackBerry Playbook. Brian Carlson, Texas Instrument's product line manager, has told EETimes that the Playbook is running on a new dual-core OMAP4430 CPU which is clocked at 1GHz. Sadly, this isn't the company's most powerful chip since they have a dual-core 1.5GHz OMAP4440 CPU as well. Getting back on track, the TI OMAP4430 packs two ARM Cortex A9 chips together and it's capable of Full HD video playback. Apparently, RIM chose this CPU over Nvidia's Tegra 2 chipset because TI's chip has MShield mobile security technology to enhance security "to protect content, transactions and network access."
