Playbook, Optimus 3D to get new 1.5GHZ processor

Texas Instruments has revealed that its new OMAP 4460 chipset is due to replace the older OMAP 4430 chipset in devices later this year. Devices that look to benefit from the upgraded chipset include the BlackBerry PlayBook, LG Optimus 3D, and Motorola Milestone 3.

The new chipset offers a claimed 25% performance increase, and will allow playback of 1080p video at 24 frames per second. The newer chipset features the same design layout as its predecessor, meaning phasing in the newer chipset in devices is as easy as possible.

The new 4460 chipset features a faster 1.5GHZ processor, improved memory latencies, slightly higher power consumption, and should find its way into supported devices later this year.
