Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) has taken a dual-core ARM A9 mobile processor all the way up to 3.1GHz, the company announced.

The chip, based on the 28 nanometre manufacturing process, typically runs at speeds of around 1.2GHz in modern mobile smartphones.

TSMC also noted that the chip achieved this frequency “under typical conditions”.

The chip was designed with High Performance for Mobile applications (HPM) technology, which is meant for use in tablet computers and other mobile devices.

The company claims the new chip is twice as fast as the equivalent chip based on the older 40 nanometre technology. A smaller manufacturing process means the new chip should also be more energy-efficient.
