Using a SOI manufacturing process is going to make a big difference! This looks like it will be one excellent chip, and I believe the power consumption claims will be good. Remember, the clock frequency in all modern processors is dynamically adjusted anyway. One of the most power-efficient phones also on the market today is the Motorola RAZR i with Intel clocked at 2GHz, so imagine an ARM at 3GHz!
manufactures have prove that they can add ridoncelous power to the procesors wich in android is need it.
what users want and what we need is batterry power. it doesn't matter how much ram or cores or power they add if the batterry cannot stand more than 8 hrs. is not enought. we need baterry power... long lasting more than a day. thats what they should be focusing on power consumption.
Gris Bleu, 22 Feb 2013You will need it when you hear your neighbour is using a phone with 2.5GHz cpu.Excellent,
Really like you reply...
Excuse me, is this a quadcore cpu? Guess not cos 3gh singlecore is still somewhat heavy for just a phone muchless 4 of it!
The "frequency war ghz/mhz" is already end of the road
as what intel claims before....
Now time is too add more CPU technology....not the cpu clock....
More fragmentation for developers, users, and slower software updates. Great...
3GHZ CPU? who the hell need this? 1.2GHZ dual core is enough just like in iphone. even its is thz is useless if the os itself is not stable enough.
Carol, 22 Feb 2013After the octa-core joke i really had confidence that this nonsense will stop... but, i was wr... moreI am not sure about how truthful these claims can be but ST-Ericsson claims that it is 35% more power efficient that its competitors and when it runs at slow speeds it is 50% more efficient. If this numbers are reliable than there is no compromise to be made here.
MyName, 22 Feb 2013If you don't need progress in smartphone technologies, then buy Nokia 1100, keep using it for ... more1100??? perhaps its better for Mr/ Ms. Mobilemaster to have a 5110 or a two way radio co'z he don't need this innovations....LOL :)))
Wait for all the windows trolls to say"we dont care or need 4 cores"blah blah blah.Whay we dont need is an awful operating system lile wp8.This procesor will be for the android elite.
mate, this htc ultrapixel is worse den nokia N8. .htc started the megapixel war vid htc titan, but fell on their feet. Now they claim ultrapixel is smthn to b taken care of. I guess the only cameraphn that can beat 808 p.v will cm from nokia itself.. Nt a android.. Ha ha.
Im still getting over Real Racing 3.. I tried it yesterday (iPhone 5) just to see what the fuss is about.. my god.. PS3/360 GFX!! ON A PHONE!!
I'm really impressed at how fast mobile technology is progressing, but real progress for now will be the one who comes up with a new battery system!! Power is the future!
hahaha, they forget to show where the heatsink fan is in the diagram....this will surely toast! 3.0ghz!!!
Anonymous, 21 Feb 2013I would like to see this kind of power and package on x86 arhitecture. that wont happen until the batteries are based on plutonium or the manufacturing process is 10nm something :D
Artlover, 21 Feb 2013Why would someone need a 3GHz processor on a phone :)You will need it when you hear your neighbour is using a phone with 2.5GHz cpu.
