Samsung Orion ARM Cortex-A9 pops up on video

You might recall back in September we talked a bit about a new processor from Samsung called the Orion that is an ARM Cortex-A9 processor that is going to be used in Samsung products like the Galaxy Tab and others. The processor has turned up on video for the first time giving us a glimpse as what the thing looks like.

In case you forget what the processor is all about it runs at 1GHz and has dual cores. The processor is aimed at advanced mobile products and while it promises lots of performance, the processor also promises to sip power. The Orion is built with a 45nm process and each of the cores has a 32kb cache for data and a 32kb cache for instructions. The processor also has a shared L2 cache with 1MB of space.

The processor supports advanced multimedia with video encoding and decoding up to 30 fps and it can play and record 1080p video as well. The GPU portion of the Orion promises five times the 3D graphics prowess of previous Samsung processors. You can check out the video of the Orion below.
