Are you ready for 3 GHz of processing power in your smartphone? ST-Ericcson believes you are. The company will demonstrate the NovaThor L8580 integrated smartphone platform with a 3-Ghz eQuad application processor and a multimode LTE Advanced modem supporting Carrier Aggregation. The NovaThor L8580 boasts some impressive specs, such as support for 3GPP Release 10, LTE Category 4, which offers (theoretical) maximum download speeds of 150 Mbps. It supports most other wireless radio interfaces and can handle VoLTE (voice-over-LTE) and HD Voice. The NovaThor L8580 is based on an ARM Cortex A9 chip. It is built using a 28nm process that ST-Ericsson claims offers power savings of up to 35% over previous designs. It will first be available with the four cores clocked at 2.5 GHz, but ST-Ericsson will ramp that up to 3.0 GHz later in the year. 3-D gaming smartphones, anyone?
