How low power the Amlogic chip can achieve? I think it is also a key factor to win the game.

"AML8726-MX chips are sampling and Android 4.0.3 ice-cream sandwich-based reference development platforms will be available in late April 2012. The chips also have the ability to Linux 3.X, OpenGL ES 2.0." This seems to be an element of differentiation for them. However, the whole model of building business on Android OS is not a solid one. They keep having these updates that a company can have a 3 year project being made obsolete by one afternoon upgrade by Google. I wish people understand the risk.

True. I agree with eewiz. Unless there is a differentiating feature offered by this chip or if there is a major cost advantage, it might be too late for Amlogic.

Its a crowded market space. I am wondering how much differentiation can Amlogic's own IP can make for media processing?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
