FYI - Marvell Armada XP family is running at 2Ghz. Single, Dual and Quad Core based on Cortex-A9.

I think that is one of the strong points in TI's offering. Almost, all the software is provided in one form or the other with only the very top level applications required to be developed and plugged into the OS. Less time to market is one of the USP for these platforms.

TI also has a rich software delivery all for free, with almost all OSs like Linux, WinCE, Android and a bunch of RTOSs. Moreover almost all drivers are provided too. TI has standard field tested IPC frame works which ease the job of using multi core SOCs. TI has been doing this for years now with the biggest to the smallest customers. So I believe the complexity of using these devices is very very much reduced, despite the most advanced features.

The combinations of the ARM/Processors and DSPs will put a rigorous work on the OS Developers and Driver Designers to make use of the hardware efficiently, otherwise the hardware will be there in the device but will not be laying idle most of the time.

An earlier version of this story INCORRECTLY said these chips use two Cortex cores. In fact, they use one ARM Cortex A8. My apologies for my error.
