    Funny, B3D regulars can usually find news in the most obscure sources imaginable, but Samsung licensing a GPU appears in an earnings release and it's apparently invisible. Go figure...

    I just brought a samsung b7610 with this 6410 soc. Can't say if the 3d silicon ever gets used though.

    The latest PR newsheet from IMG contains some interesting product info.

    1) Two new Sony phones, Kurare and Kanna, contain SGX, seems Sony are still developing with the TI Omap3 platform.

    2) Omap4 will be in Silicon on IMG's stand at mobile world congress next week

    And finally, a nice bit regarding the the samsung S5PC110. I initially put this Soc on my radar back in Feb '09, at which time google had a total of "1" hit for it.

    Samsung announced it end of last year along with the S5PV210 as both containing SGX. IMG in the newsletter confirm that it is SGX540, which was speculated on this thread as being the most likely.

    This must be the 1.2Ghz processor that Anandtech saw at CES, from post #36 above.

    Kanna and Kurana (or U5 and U8 or Vivaz and ????) are based of the newer OMAP36xx platform most likely being the 3630 whereas the older handsets such as the Satio featured OMAP3430 with the lower L2 cache. The 36xx is also a die-shrunk 45nm implementation.

    Well, Samsung just announced a long term strategic deal with Mali for all future Socs, so looks like after the SGX540 based Socs, they'll be no SGX stuff from samsung.
