Re: spear1310 dual-core cortex A9, SATA-II etc. etc.


ouaaaaaahhh, deaad sexyy :)

CPU subsystem:
    * 2x ARM Cortex A9 cores, up to 600 MHz supporting both symmetric
(SMP) and asymmetric (AMP) multiprocessing

    * Multiport controller for external DDR2-800/ DDR3-1066 with
16-/32-bit datapath, up to 1 GB addressable with ECC option for

    * 1x Giga/Fast Ethernet ports (for external GMII/RGMII/MII/RMII PHY)
    * 1x PCIe 2.0 RC/EP link (embedded PHY)
    * 1x SATA gen-2 host port(alternative to PCIe)
    * 2x USB 2.0 host ports (embedded PHYs)
    * 1x USB2.0 OTG port with integrated PHY

    * TFT LCD controller, up to 1920 x 1200 (60 Hz), 24 bpp
    * High-performance MALI200 2D/3D (GPU), up to 1080p, OpenGL ES
2.0, OpenVG 2.0
    * HD video decoder, up to 1080p: H263, H264, MPEG2, MPEG4, VC1,
Sorenson Spark, AVS, VPS 6-7-8, RealVideo, DivX, JPEG (67 Mpixels)
    * HD video encoder, up to 1080p: H264, JPEG (67 Mpixels)

holy crap.  1080p video *encode*??  that's pretty impressive.

detailed spec sheet:

i'm seeing something not listed in the brief specs - a 32-bit wide
external AHB-compliant "Serial Memory Interface".  presumably similar
to the HPI interface seen on some TI and Samsung CPUs (OMAP3530 for

not too shabby at all.

now if only ARM would pull their arses out of their fingers over the
licensing of MALI from MediaTek and release the hardware specs
sufficient to create a Gallium3D-compliant Free Software 3D driver,
we'd be laughing.  in the mean-time, the xf86-video-mali driver and
the proprietary libGLES.so.2 will have to do.
