Will a CC1600 MID be more powerful than the SmartQ 5 or vice versa ?

If so - there's a ton of great aps already written besides TCPMP listed above. There's a ton of good emulators - and even SNES might be possible if the processor is fast enough.



it can run some, a bit of a hit or miss really when it comes to win mobile apps running on wince.

CC1600 is more than twice the POWER

dunno, will need to wait and see


but seeing how the CC1600 chip can decode and play very high res videos, which the Samsung processor in the Q5 can't do, i would probably guess the CC1600 is a faster chip.

I think it's much more likely that the CC1600 has a graphics chip optimized for video playback - as opposed to having a high clockspeed. That would explain why it can play 720P files, but drops frames with SD video with high bitrate audio.

So I'd hold back on expectations for the CC1600 as a mid - I wouldn't be surprised if it's speed isn't high enough to do much more than a current PDA phone.

No, i think its a lot more powerful that what most current PDA phones have.

This is the brandorgian empire post:

The CC1600 chips run at 1.6 ghz (1600mhz)

most pocket pc's (aka win CE) run at 400-800mhz... do the math...

most netbooks also usually run at duh duh duh da 1.6 ghz....

hmm.... Razonator when do you expect to receive a MID????

If you think it's just as easy as comparing one to the other directly - then you would have to have the IQ of a lemming. Because all processors are the same when you compare clockspeed, obviously.

I hope I'm proven wrong - I really do. If Raz is correct, then SNES emulators for windows mobile should play at 100% speed - and I'm not expecting that at all.

Again, part of the reason I'm not expecting too much is that my old 416 mhz 6700 PDA phone played back SD videos (up to 800x480) full screen and with high bitrate audio, even AC3! Zero stutter or framedropping. For some reason, these CC1600 media players can't do the same.

lol, I have a old PDA too, (400mhz mpis), and the new CC1600's play HD (as in 720p). Ya TMCMP was a great player. without sound 400mhz is enough to emulate snes (full speed).

If the CC1600 is clocked at 1600 Mhz then that process or is much more than video only capable. We are talking Intel emulation capable and we should soon see laptops with this 1600 Mhz process with battery life in the 3 to 5 hour range with a SSD. I think not with frame rate drop and the piss poor audio implementation the CC chip set is not quite there. Even at the smallest die heat dissipation would be a problem. Seriously, the player at full tilt would probably feel like a hot potato fresh out of the oven.
