Windows on ARMEven though there is still more than a year left until the first SoC designs based on ARM's Cortex A15 core make their way into mobile devices, recent reports suggest these chips are expected to deliver quite an important performance increase over the current Cortex A9 processors.

According to information provided by unnamed sources from Texas Instruments, dual-core system-on-a-chip (SoC) solutions based on the Cortex A15 architecture can beat 40nm Cortex A9 quad-core chips, such as Nvidia's Kal-El.

In addition, the advanced manufacturing node and lower core count is also expected to provide better battery life than future quad-core solutions based on the Cortex A9 design.
