Cortex-A5 MP, Mali Support and New AMBA IP from ARM for Developing Advanced Portables
By Joel Hruska, Hot Hardware, October 23, 2009
Historically, ARM isn't a company we talk about much. The company's processor designs power a huge number of devices worldwide, but its architectures have focused on the embedded, ultra-low power, ultra-low cost markets where high-end performance simply wasn't a requirement. ARM's target market hasn't changed all that much in the past 18 months, but the fact that Intel intends to push future iterations of its Atom architecture into the MID/high-end smartphone market changes the entire competitive landscape.
ARM Announces Mali GPU Developers Center

This will be a single location that will have all the necessary tools, sample code, documentation, developers' platforms, along with forums and blogs to meet other Mali developers.
ARM Shows Mali Graphics Chip with 720p 3D
electronista, October 21, 2009
ARM at the TechCon3 expo starting today will begin showing working examples of its Mali graphics core. The design is now known to be much faster than most existing mobile graphics and, even with the basic single-core Mali-200, can render modern-looking 3D in 720p at 30 frames per second. In many cases it can use 4X antialiasing to clean up the image without a performance hit.

Comment: ARM, Xilinx and the future of programmable platforms
By Peter Clarke, EE Times, October 19, 2009
The information provided to me so far about the ARM-Xilinx programmable systems collaboration was long on canned quotes and short on detail which of course leads to all sorts of questions and speculations. From where I am sitting it seems a fairly important announcement. ARM has worked with programmable logic vendors in the past, such as Atmel and Actel, but in heavily prescriptive ways. There have even been versions of older ARM processor cores that could be synthesized and smeared across FPGAs, although in general that was not considered a useful strategy; throwing away the power savings associated with ARM processor cores.
