Palm Pixi processor specs, GPU details emerge

Qualcomm has given Palm Infocenter the heads up on the processor that will be powering the upcoming webOS Palm Pixi handset, and for those hoping for gaming capability, the 600MHz MSM7627 chip it uses will have a 200MHz GPU supporting OpenGL 2.0 (which should be available when Palm's Graphics Engineers get the SDK up to speed). The full specs under the hood include:

  • Two ARM cores integrated into a single chip – a dedicated CPU core and a dedicated modem processor – for an unparalleled level of integration:
    • 600MHz applications processor with floating point unit and L2 cache
    • 400MHz modem processor
  • Supports both CDMA2000® 1xEV-DO Rev. A and UMTS HSDPA 7.2Mbps/HSUPA 5.76Mbps, and GSM
  • In addition to the two ARM cores, features 320MHz application DSP for multimedia supporting full 30 fps WVGA encode/decode, 200MHz hardware-accelerated 3D graphics core supporting OPEN GL 2.0, high-resolution camera, integrated GPS
  • 12mm x 12mm footprint
  • Optimized power consumption

Overall, the Pixi will pack slightly less punch than the Pre (apparently supporting fewer open cards), but is no slouch. Of note is that the chip supports EVDO and HSDPA, foreshadowing a GSM Pixi that is to come.
