    Thumbs up New Broadcom ARM & MIPS32 SoC/CPU's

    Interesting seeing new MIPS CPU's running at 1.5GHZ inside a router (1074K), i guess we will see them "soon" inside ASUS routers :-D

    MIPS32-74K (RT-N16)

    1.4GHz ARM9 CPU and integrated gigabit Ethernet switch.
    It utilizes a powerful 1.4 GHz dual core ARM processor enabling
    unprecedented wireless and video streaming performance.
    For retail Wi-Fi access point routers, the BCM47094 is coupled
    with the BCM4366, a 4x4 5G WiFi MU-MIMO chip.

    • High performance CPU platform for Broadcom Wave-2 5G WiFi
    • USB3.0 with 100MB/s USB storage performance (NAS)

    Broadcom BCM4366 - 5G WiFi 4x4 MU-MIMO radio chip

    The BCM4366 is a 4x4 5G WiFi MU-MIMO chip for home gateways and set-top boxes.
    It incorporates multiple 802.11ac Wave 2 features, including a MU-MIMO implementation,
    which delivers up to a 4X speed boost. In addition, multiple radio optimizations enable
    the delivery of broadcast-quality video over a wireless network.
    For retail Wi-Fi access point routers, the BCM4366 is coupled with the BCM47094
    network processor SoC, which utilizes a powerful 1.4 GHz dual core ARM processor
    enabling unprecedented wireless and video streaming performance.

    The BCM4366 is a 5G WiFi 4x4 MU-MIMO radio chip for high-performance routers,
    wireless cable/DSL gateways and set-top boxes, featuring:
    • NitroQAM modulation for higher peak throughput (up to 1024Mbps)
    • Capable of 8x8 5G WiFi XStream configuration with 8 client MU-MIMO support
    • Dedicated hardware for enhancing video distribution while maintaining
      best-in-class data performance
    • Enhanced receiver performance in the presence of interference for better range
    • Enables 160MHz aggregation for mobile devices taking upload and download
      speeds to the next level
    • Zero Wait DFS allows access points to connect to more 5 GHz channels and
      achieve higher capacity to deliver better performance

    Broadcom Announces Industry's First 64Bit Quad-core Router Processor

    Delivers CPU Power Needed for IoT and Smart Home Applications

    LAS VEGAS, Jan. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CES International 2016

    Broadcom Corporation (NASDAQ: BRCM), a global innovation leader in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, today announced the industry's first 64bit quad-core processor for high-end routers. The BCM4908 enables OEMs and service providers to deliver the extra CPU power needed for smart home and Internet of Things applications while unleashing the higher Internet speeds coming into the home. For more CES news, visit Broadcom's Newsroom.

    The BCM4908 includes the industry's first 1.8GHz 64Bit quad-core ARM CPU and uses Broadcom's Runner network packet processor to deliver more than 5 Gbps of system data throughput without taxing the CPU. It also supports the increased speeds coming into the home including Google Fiber and Comcast 2 Gbps via an interface for a 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet PHY, allowing consumers to enjoy the fastest connection available today.

    "With this new SoC, Broadcom is driving home network connectivity to the next level," said Manny Patel, Broadcom Director of Marketing, Wireless Connectivity. "By increasing the CPU performance and adding advanced features, we're enabling OEMs to build more powerful home routers that address the increased bandwidth requirements needed to support the continued consumption of high-bandwidth content, growing demand for UltraHD as well as the growing emergence of more IoT and smart home applications."

    The BCM4908 pairs with Broadcom's BCM4366 wave 2 5G WiFi MU-MIMO to deliver more than 3.4Gbps of simultaneous Wi-Fi throughput.

    Key Features and Benefits
    Zero CPU Wi-Fi offload frees up CPU resources for other tasks
    BroadStream iQoS acceleration
    Dedicated security processor to enable hardware VPN acceleration
    2.5Gb Base-X Ethernet WAN/LAN port for supporting fast connectivity to multi-gigabit modem or a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device
    Feature-rich connectivity with integrated SATA III, two USB 3.0 ports and three PCIe Gen 2 ports reduces external RBOM cost
    Utilizes low power 28nm technology and advanced power management, offering power reductions of more than 50 percent as compared to previous solutions
    Supports Broadcom's tri-band (AC5300) 5G WiFi XStream 802.11ac MU-MIMO: ◦Three BCM4366 4x4 radios, each with an integrated CPU for host offload processing
    ◦Providing a total of seven CPU cores ("Septacore") with more than 9.6 GHz of CPU horse power

    Powerful hardware acceleration for routing and USB storage

    The BCM4908 is currently sampling.
