Samsung teases with image of Exynos 5 Octa chipset - read the full textThe Samsung Exynos 5 Octa chipset caused a lot of excitement and the SamsungExynos Twitter account is slowly fanning the flames with little teasing tidbits of info like this image of the chipset. Its a 3D render of the SoC rather than a photo of a production unit. In the same tweet, Samsung is...

Im trying my hardest not to make a comment, to not to sound "fanboy-ish" as you guys like to put it but....

I wonder if apple did this chip and was placing it in their iphone and ipad or if microft/nokia implemented it in their devices, what the comment section would be like. Innovation probably would be screaming all over the place

Give props where it is due guys...

guyssssss so its just a quad core processor which can change from 4 core A-15 to 4 core A-7
to save the battery
its just work management
its no octo core

"a quadcore A9 1.2ghz processor (for light apps like phone and msg) "
do you really need a quad for msg and phone?:)))))))))))

I think alot of people are confusing the tech/purpose of this chip... Its not so much for performance, as it will run the same as an A15

... but its for better/efficient battery life and consumption.

I'll only go after big internal storage and better battery not better cpu or display, it's already good what else we want?!!

It's about time making 64GB as standard not 2008's 16GB!!!

"Therefore the maximum performance will be equal to a quadcore A15 1.8ghz processor" so the only thing who's enjoying this octa is the battery(and how great this will be, only the review will tell:)), great, and what I just said?:), it's like these cars with stop&go engines(not that big of a deal)

It's a normal Quad core A-15 that can swicht to a quad core A-7 for power efficience.

ex:

If you play HD game Or Emulator(Ps1 or N64) like myself or browser the web. The quad core A-15 will do the work and the quad core A-7 will be in sleep mode. If i only do call, text, facebook twitter, ide and everything that demand low process The quad core A-7 will do the work and the quad A-15 will be in sleep mode. It's not hard for me to understand that simple logic.


PS: I love playing FF7 on my ps1 emulator Mirrored to my 40'' TV. My bluethoot controle rock. S3 killed it

bigLITTLE runs EITHER
A quad core A15 1.8ghz processor (for heavy apps) OR
a quadcore A9 1.2ghz processor (for light apps like phone and msg)

Therefore the maximum performance will be equal to a quadcore A15 1.8ghz processor

The big step up will be the battery life. ......

To be honest I can expect to see this CPU rendered picture more beautiful than the next SGS4 design :))

again, the matter of advertisement.
whats the need of 8 cores?? quad-cores are doing well running every program.
