Google has acquired Agnilux for its internal servers and processors where in Agnilux can come out with efficient ones which will inturn reduce millions of cost savings.With the help of Agnilux efficient employees Google will be able to use high end processors with great performance and also there can be lot of power saving options within the processors.Agnilux as a team can give a great support to Google in data center business.
Initially Agnilux was within the company PA Semi (originally “Palo Alto Semiconductor”) .During 2008 Apple acquired PA Semi and had its internal chips and processors for its iPhone and iPod developed at this center.But Employees of PA Semi were not satisfied as the stock value of the company was not appreciable.Later they formed a seperate organisation called Agnilux and now its acquired by Google
With this master mind employees in Chips and Processors Google can even slowly enter into this industry though it has plans only to develop things for its internal operations.
You might get surprised by the below numbers. A day after N97 was announced in I wanted to see how different are the high end ones different from the other models of Nokia’s Nseries and ESeries models. Here are the findings. Surprisingly N97 doesn’t have fastest processor and also it is marginally better than that of N95.
Generally the Eseries models had better and faster processors than their costlier Nseries counterparts. Below is the list of processor CPU speeds for Latest Nokia mobiles. The Nokia model with fastest CPU are E52 and E55. The N96 has dual processors (2 ARM 9) . Though the CPU itself is not the only criteria in pricing of the models, but costliest model N97 has a reasonably lower CPU speed than E52 which 50% of N97’s price.
Same with E71 and E63. E63 is exact replica of E71 except GPS and 3G.
Nokia E52 – ARM 11 – 600 MHz
Nokia E55 – ARM 11 – 600 MHz
Nokia N97 – ARM 11 – 434 MHz
Nokia N86 8MP – ARM 11 – 434 MHz
Nokia N96 – ARM 9 – 2 * 264 MHz
Nokia N79 – ARM 9 – 2 * 220 MHz
Nokia E63 – ARM 11 – 369 MHz
Nokia E71 – ARM 11 – 369 MHz
Nokia N79 – ARM 11 -369 MHz
Nokia E75 – ARM 11 – 369 MHz
Nokia N85 – ARM 11 – 369 MHz
Nokia N95 8GB – ARM 11 – 332 MHz
Nokia N82 – ARM 11 – 332 MHz
