Fastest application processor? Nvidia and Qualcomm has announced Quad core A15's and they STE cant claim Quad core A9 to be faster than that. The integrated LTE modem is interesting. I guess this chip is aiming at budget smartphones and tablets.

@eewiz I think by fastest ST-Ericsson meant fastest clock frequency (2.5-GHz), not the highest performing.

@eewiz As I remember Nvidia does not yet have an integrated LTE baseband. It still requires an outboard chip to support the Icera i500 soft-modem. The integrated version, codenamed Grey, is coming later in 2013.

low power is the key/significant point here, @0.6V delivering 5000 DMIPS is extremely encouraging , i dont think anybody still claims to be at this level of low power consumption with such performance, be it qualcomm or be it nvidia,,,,,i guess this is going to be really a break through in smartphone/tablets with agrressive speed/low power requirements..

To Didier Lamouche: would anyone from ST-Ericsson be interested in presenting this technology at emerging technologies symposium in Whistler in 2013? www.cmosetr.com, kris.iniewski@gmail.com

Well done STE! The key achievement here is the ability to operate with a so wide voltage range (0.6V to more than 1.1V I guess). Also, low voltage operation is the key for low power (CV^2). This is made possible by FD-SOI technology. I would like to see performance (and power) figures at lower than 0.6V, which is not achievable in bulk CMOS.

Wait to see the stories of 1) STE beat Qualcomm and Nvidia in the near future. 2) STM+GF(FDSOI camp) beat SAMSUNG+GF+UMC(IBM camp) and TSMC in Bulk CMOS and FINFET. Look foreward to seeing more evidence soon.

@eewiz compared to existing high performance processors it is not the best, rather fall in average performance category. But mastering processor's "Power" is I think the best and right step forward.

Performance should always compared at a specific leakage or Power spec for a given silicon area & cost.

I heard that ST-Ericsson is planning to shut-down in 6 months (after St Microelectronics leaving) after selling some of its existing products, is that true??
