abhijitbiswas, 04 Nov 2013I hope Qualcomm comes up with a sixcore processor which will crush the competition's octacore ... moreIf you want Qualcomm to show that more cores do not equal better performance, why would you want them add two more unnecessary cores? Their quadcore Snapdragon 800 is already very competitive with the Octacore Exynos, and at a lower power level. Personally, I will be disappointed if they come out with a hexacore processor.
I hate Apple phones because of iOS and Apple's constant attempts to lock consumers in, but they are the only ones doing mobile CPUs completely right. Manufacturers should focus on fewer, faster cores, since we're not at a place where most apps effectively use more than two cores anyway. Now granted, this is not really Qualcomm's fault, since the Android spec marketing wars mean that even if you know better, you can't really get away with launching a premium Android phone with less than four cores (this is mainly Samsung's fault), but they don't need to exacerbate the situation.
Doc-Oc, 04 Nov 2013Interesting to say the least I anticipate that the S5 or Samsungs new premimum line phone will... moreREally? How do you struggle? what's the effort you are putting into this... oah man, I bet you are so tired :/
Interesting to say the least I anticipate that the S5 or Samsungs new premimum line phone will carry this chip. I am struggling with the rumour that the S5 will be out so soon after the S4..
True, thank goodness other people know that IOS hides lag behind animations.
I hope Qualcomm comes up with a sixcore processor which will crush the competition's octacore processors, all of which will come out next year! Then I will become a diehard Qualcomm fan, show the world that more cores don't mean better performance like you have always done!!!
ARM's Mali T760 GPU I want dat (which devices have this?)....man Adreno 400 doesn't support OpenCL too...awh.
*correction to my original post: not primary vendor, but primary platform.
then Samsung introduce a new Galaxy s4 with the new chip inside it...
Mark Fauzi, 04 Nov 2013Again, for incoming 2014 Apple will prepare 128 bit CPUs.Yeah with just only 1 gb of RAM....failed
Anonymous, 04 Nov 2013Wp lags too. You know that?iOS too, but is hidden behind the pretty animations.
Anonymous, 04 Nov 2013Running android .. Opps .. lagged.Wp lags too. You know that?
Anonymous, 04 Nov 2013That's impressive. Yeah, and not to mention it's 400% more energy efficient compared to their past flagship GPU, or so they say...
Man, these rumors soon make Apple mad. Be careful, Lawsuit agains Snapdragon is on the way.
