With many entry level NAS devices using SOCs like these, they will also find homes in those devices. I wonder if the little 100mhz one can be used for an audio media player. It is pretty light on power.

I'd say it probably could. I believe my current 8 GB MP3 player I got around 2008 uses an older ARM CPU was clocked at 66 MHz, and that would be a significantly older architecture. Whatever additional audio components put inside would probably suck up more power at this point.

Nice article Lucian.

Although it’s made on the ARMv8-A architecture, Cortex-A32 is a 32-bit core chip.
I'm not looking forward to this. Android already supports two flavors of ARMv7-A. Bifurcating ARMv8-A is just annoying, but I guess it has improvements they wanted even for 32-bit processors.

We should expect to see the Coretex-A32 in ... mobile VR headsets
That would definitely surprise me. It's too weak for self-contained headsets, and it doesn't seem worth the trouble of putting it in tethered headsets.
