    It's nothing particularly new that IMG intended to market its META cores more actively for embedded devices:

    I wonder what else is new in that generation.

    ooopps edit just noticed...

    ...well I'll be damned....

    Judging by the apparent high utilization of processor resources achieved within other IP families of Imgtec, I'm inclined to believe their philosophy of multithreading and superthreading everything.

    On a somewhat related note, Imgtec is also focusing on advancing the tools/software side.

    Yeah, I saw that.

    After going so long without designing a true mobile successor to their SH-4 SuperH CPU line and after acquiring the rights to include ARM designs in their SuperH SoCs for the interests of their customers, I had figured Renesas were about to switch to ARM as their primary CPU.
