re: TI OMAP 5 kicks iPad 3 GPU butt

Why is it, that this chip has been delayed for so long, after originally being annonced in July 2011, twenty-eleven.... and the shiping date keeps on getting pushed back. Now estimated that devices using it, will hopefully come out by Q1/2013... some 18+months after being announced! Shees... maybe T.I. should announce important chips about 3 months to 6 months MAX before availability. This was just oh sooo wrong! Oh well, I hope Omap 6 will be way quicker to market!

Everyone seems to be ignoring the fact that this was a comparison between a dual core SGX544 and a quad core SGX543. The point is that TI's next generation cell phone/tablet SoC will kill current top of the line tablet SoC's in CPU capabilities, while surpassing them in GPU capabilities. A 4 core cortex a15/4 core SGX544 SoC would be one hell of a low power htpc chip.

IPad3 is already a mature consumer product while OMAP5 just engineering sample. It is long way to go before it is even in any product. At that time, I will be surprised that Apple will not have newer version. Plus, I will only take seriously if this information from 3rd party. From TI, I don't think that meaningful. How do I know TI didn't overclock its OMAP5 in freezer while put IPads in low power mode to make comparison. All Silicon vendors are squeezing IP to increase margin while Apple could implement Silicon at own wish without margin pressure. Unless you develop own Silicon like Samsung does, I don't believe there is ANY chance Silicon Vendors could compete graphic performance with Apple any time in near future. Not believe me, take a look of A5x die picture. You will see how much silicon Apple is willing to invest on Graphic Performance.

That's sensible input, derooney. My take is what's it matter? Neither chip is/will be available to the embedded community. Apple is exclusive and TI reserves their OMAPs for the Tier Ones.

It's fun to see ti claims the graphics performance. Processor alone doesn't make the product. There is a lot more needed.

I second that. We also need to look at power consumption figures... and overall cost.

Nice, but what *really* matters here is opening up some of this GPU/DSP compute power to developers to use beyond just games & 3D demos, which will never rival what people come to expect on desktop. For instance, video apps that can transcode/resize HD video while adding animated tiling & transition effects at equal or near realtime speed (see iMovie on iPhone4, for instance) and photo apps that can work with 8 megapixel photos without keeping user waiting longer than a few seconds (again, several iOS apps manage this). Android could use a bigger push in this direction but LLVM/Renderscript are a potential start.

Hmmm. It better have some pretty compelling price and power benefits then. If you're only getting 12% upside in visual performance comparing sample silicon against an off-the-shelf device that's been shipping for several months (and hence has had its silicon designed in some time last year)... If the OMAP comes with a ~25-30% power reduction too, that's more interesting.

I have a hard time getting excited about a 10% bump on benchmark, and I wouldn't characterize it as "kicks butt".

It was unusual of Apple to talk specifically (and comparatively) about their GPU performance in the new iPad. Something, I think, Jobs would have avoided due to objections and follow-on comparisons. The tablet battle has very little to do with hardware performance. Indirectly a poor performing iPad would be bad for Apple but having sufficient performance is what its about.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
