ZiiLABS' ZMS-08 System-On-A-Chip To Bring 1080p and Full Flash Acceleration To Netbooks

Creative's latest system-on-a-chip is crammed with features: 1080p playback, 24fps encoding, HD video conferencing, OpenGL ES 2.0 support, an integrated HDMI controller, X-Fi audio and Flash acceleration. All combined with a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8. Of course there's a catch.

We don't know the expected price range yet. Could a company like Creative really undersell the likes of Intel or Nvidia?

That question aside and despite Creative specifically ruling out putting it into smart phones, chips like the ZMS-08 will definitely bring higher performance to lower power devices and seem worth at least a bit of excitement. [Engadget]
