MIPS I6400 - coherent multicore cluster_f

Android currently supports three processor architectures: ARM, Intel and MIPS.Ā ARM is currently the leader, but Intel andĀ Imagination Technologies (who design the MIPS processors) are viable... alternatives. The next big area where these three chip designers will fight for a sliceĀ of the mobile computing pie is 64-bit computing.

The 64-bit MIPS architecture has been around for almost 2...


The Karbonn Smart Tab 1 was one of the very first tablets to get Jelly Bean, and it was the first Jelly Bean device in India. Now custom ROM developers can start working on porting Jelly Bean to other MIPS-powered devices, as MIPS has just released the Jelly Bean source code for the platform.


When Google made Android, they tried to make it run on every current and upcoming chip architectures, and they did that by creating the Dalvik Virtual Machine, with the vast majority of Android... applications being built on it.

There are however some types of apps, like 3D games, that either need a bit of extra performance, or were written in C++ on another platform. In many cases, it̵...
