Announced in September, the Cortex-A15 can run at speeds of up to 2.5GHz and stretch to 16 cores in certain configurations. ARM processors go into most of the world's smartphones and tablets, and the company licenses its designs to chip makers such as Nvidia, Samsung, Texas Instruments and Qualcomm."
