    3Dlabs today revealed that it is spinning out from under Creative Labs after over four years ownership and is now independently sampling its media processor technology to system designers. "Creative has approved the spinout and feels it is the best solution for its shareholders, and we are now talking to potential investors as we move back to our roots of being a fabless chip company. We hope the transaction will be completed by next April," said Hock Leow, president of 3Dlabs. 3Dlabs also announced its DMS-02 multi-core media processor capable of HD 720p H.264 video playback on a handheld device. The DMS-02 incorporates 24 floating-point processing elements, dual ARM 926EJ cores, multi-level caches, three bi-directional video stream ports, 32 or 64-bit mobile memory for up to 1.6 GBytes/s bandwidth and peripheral interfaces to LCDs, CMOS sensors, IDE disks, USB OTG, Flash memory and Audio DACs. The device is OS independent with the first SDK supporting embedded Linux 2.6.

    If they split they'll be in competition which could be good for the consumer, so this could mean lower prices.
