Apple do employee better GPU though which has nothing to do with article.
with coming phones- 50Mpxs and real manual control, I hope samsung will do something about that 16mp sony sensors they use. I love details in 38Mpix. That leaves me in between to choose a phone.

Anonymous, 27 Apr 2015Why isn't the standard ARM design already optimal leaving no room for improvement using custom... moreall these custom cores are made using ARM's architecture while Intel uses their own x86 architecture which is "customized" by themselves to their liking. there is no other OEM in the mobile business who licences Intel's architecture to create their own custom cores.
Benchmark, 27 Apr 2015The 45% number is complete speculative it seems, do you have any evidence to back up this claim?"speculative"? no, it is a laboratory test result obviously. if the performance increase will be this large in real life usage, this remains to be seen.
Why isn't the standard ARM design already optimal leaving no room for improvement using custom cores? Is ARM on purpose leaving such room for improvement to customers to exploit to allow customers to get ahead of competitors?
In the other camp - is the design of Intels cpus already optimal since no custom cores exist? Probably not. Or perhaps Intel doesn't want custom cores and has the means to disallow them.
ATTENTION : all BB fanboys. This is how one company stays in the tech business. Vision, Foresight, R and D, take risks and implement.

If it's only 45% faster than A57, then it should lagg behind Cortex A72. It'll be funny seeing Mediatek with A72 beating Samsung with their Mangoose.
It's nice that this will be faster than Cortex A57, but by this time next year ARM (and other) will have moved on to the newer Cortex A72, leaving Samsung with a fast chip that uses a superseded design. It's going to be a little awkward.
I do believe, that this next SoC shall be based on 10NM manufacturing technology, and will be available on the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, and the Note Edge 2! YAHOO! R.I.P. Apple… let the Juggernaut of Asia eat you!!…

and their Samprice will be 45% more than ever.
No more of their bullcrap in my pocket.

No need to keep the "in my opinion" charade for something so clear as performance, just try it yourself and see the real numbers match your (not so great) experience!
I don't know if it's 45% (probably it's not), but these Exynos are definitely faster than the SD810.
