pgphoto_ca: 480 MB/Sec...the new Nikon Expeed III is 600 MB/sec.......no big deal !
Specs, schmecs... I see on Ambarella's website that here is a higher end chip launched earlier, 'A7', which is 700 MB/sec. Nikon and others may use A7L or A7 to get ahead on video quality, the 1080p60 format, and Android. Diehards like Canon probably would never use somebody else's chips even if they're better.
dylanbarnhart: If you read Ambarella's 'S-1 filing' to go public, they listed some of the companies that use their chips today ; Sony, Samsung, Kodak, GoPro. Anywho... it'll be interesting to watch this app trend for cameras!
