Samsung’s 1GHz ARM Chip May Come to Next-Gen iPhone and Pre,

Samsung and Intrinsity have announced one of the fastest ARM Cortex A8-based
processors yet—the same chip design in the iPhone 3GS and Palm Pre—clocking in at 1GHz.

Code-named “Hummingbird,” this new chip is designed with smartphones in mind as
it balances power consumption and high clock speeds, and matches the single core
end of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon platform.

Analysts suggest it could be easily dropped into a new iPhone or Pre:

Samsung could drop Hummingbird into the existing S5PC100 design with few or no
changes,” Halfhill said in response to an e-mail query, referring to the S5PC100
processor now used in the iPhone 3GS. “Bingo! A next-gen iPhone that could run at
speeds up to 1.0GHz,” he said.
But more than likely, we’ll see them in Android-based or other smartphones first,
just like we’re seeing 1GHz Snapdragon chips pop up in other phones right now.

I just know that my heart rate matches a hummingbird’s at the thought of a 3G
S(uper) S(peedy).
