Liekwise, TSMC manufactured the A8 according to Apple's designs specificatinos. If Sammy was using something similar in their own phones, there would be a clear breach of intellectual property rights. That would be blatant and serious.
Anonymous, 23 Sep 2015Samsung manufactured them they didn't design them i worked 19 years in the semiconductor industry r&d at dpi/kfab/dmos5 texas instruments(oh yeah thats where the old blackbird chips apple used to use came from a long time ago) , honeywell sensor fab, and finisar VCSEL. i already know exactly how it works the purchasing company submits for bids for a device ( cpu gpu whatever) with a specific set of specifications which the device must meet. the manufacturers of the devices will submit a plan by design and prototype manufacture to the purchasing company for evaluation. please dont try to explain what you know nothing about.

But no point acting like the a10 is so good before we've even seen anything about it.
It will be amusing to see the apple fans who always dismiss multiple cores as useless and then act like its a necessary innovation, however. ;-)
But we can hope it copies big.little architecture and serves the purpose of increasing battery and not performance. The same way it does on android devices. My money is on this,and it should be a welcome move by Apple fans.

Just because they are not puting more cores on iPhones it means they cannot do it? We dnt know they are waiting for the right time yo do it... Perhaps they're still cooking and its almost done... you know what I mean? Apple knows best... they know they can do it but its not yet time.. when its time we all be surprised..

Its not that they don't add multiple cores,but they can't. Apples custom dual cores are massive. If they introduce 4 more cores don't think it means they would have 3 times the performance or something, unless the phone is much bigger with a much bigger battery of course. And we all know that won't happen.
The whole optimisation thing is mainly a marketing thing. And of course, since most people don't have a clue and think that it sounds about right, they totally fall for it.

Something else to think about when that sinks in Samsung made and designed that dual core for apple. If it was really that so much more powerful, why wouldn't they be using something similar in there own phones? just some words for thought.
Harmonica, 23 Sep 2015s6 has the worst battery life of all of the samsung flagships .. lolSorta true, the S6 Active has one of the best battery times. :o)
Wait a min... You should always start out with Quad-core. Or is that too much to ask? I'll take Quad-core anyday over today's octa and more cores.
Anonymous, 23 Sep 2015If it destroys the competition, then why announce more cores?and why android still create more core?

stil won't buy it coz the OS is restricted.
By that time Android would be on another level.
Apple is for kids....Android FTW

Apple is cunning.
They said 1GB ram was enough as ios was optimized and then sneaky unannounced the 6s and 6s+ have 2GB.
Now they have dual core and they moving to hex core and will not announce it too.
Pure marketing but way behind the competition.
Wake up people.
Evolution of the Apple SoC. And it will still try the android competition. Android fanboys will still have loads to say, fools usually do lol. Everything Apple does attracts attention from the world. This is no different and can be proven by all the android fanboys commenting on this thread lmao

This rumor does not make much sense.
Multithreading is not the same as multicore. If the A10 has a 6-core multithreaded CPU (which it will not), then it will have 12 "threads".
If it has 6 threads, it will have 3 physical cores. So it could be a tri-core CPU, just like the A8X, except that it is multithreaded.
Thankfully, Apple, like Intel, does not play the more-cores-are-better game. My laptop has a dual-core Sandybridge i5 processor, but it easily smokes any octa-core chip out there. Most applications are simply not made to take advantage of multiple cores. Hence the continued focus on dual-core (and, at most, quad-core) CPUs in the mainstream PC industry. Intel and Apple engineers know this, even if consumers are willing to be suckered into buying octa-core phones.
