...which means: we'll be impatiently waiting for the MONSTROUS Galaxy Note 6!
(hopefully with a huge battery to support that power, especially if it's gonna come with a 4k resolution)

remember mediated beaten samsung black and blue using 10 cores

no one remembers TSMC like samsung , because they don't design anything of their own
So this is going to faceoff against A10. I think Qualcomm is shaking in its boots. Apple and Samsung are making far superior SoC than Qualcomm.
If we already have benchmarks why would Samsung start the production in 12 months? The chip is clearly already ready it only needs minor tweaks, why would Samsung wait a full year? It doesn't make sense.
Anonymous, 06 Oct 2015If Samesung is not releasing this for another 12 months, that puts the A9 over a year ahead of... moreAs you know(or you already know because this also mentioned at gsmarena's iphone 6s review),samsung is also the creator of the Apple's chipset(and TSMC also)
AnonD-322352, 06 Oct 2015Great job, Samsung. All that's left to do is optimising your bloody UI. Or just use Stock Andr... moreYou know i think they sorted it since the note 4..i am finding it hard to push the galaxy e7 a midranger to the limit let alone a galaxy note 5 or s6 flagship
PuroDoraiba, 06 Oct 2015We'll say how the Snapdragon 820 and the Apple A10 have to answer to this.No a chance!!! Exynos is always 1generation early...it's been always that way
AnonD-438854, 06 Oct 2015Oh for heaven's sake. The use of the number of threads and cores a CPU uses is dependent on HO... morePlease read about how android behaves first before continuing further, there is a good article on android authority about HMP.
Lol, 06 Oct 2015Sorry, I expressed myself wrong, I wanted to know where I can buy a device with Mongoose cores.if you are interested in processors , buy a desktop ;-)

Lol, 06 Oct 2015Apple A9 is shipping, where can I buy a device with this SoC?I think every country possible? check the availability in your country. but you'll have to say bye bye to 650$s if not more. (6S 16 GB is 650 dollars. 64 is 750 and 128 is 850. +100 each for 6S+)
AnonD-60077, 06 Oct 2015by that time, apple will release a new chip that is higher than samsung's Indeed. and it's a HEXA core. (YES! no more two cores. it's SIX!) and from what I've understood. apple are constantly raising clock speed as well... so a HEXA AT 2 GHz (if not more) with high IPC and clock would blast over 100k points in AnTuTu!
(I'm a huge fan of Android by the way. and a power seeker. Owning a SD808 powered phone)
the REASON why apple is tripling it's core amount. is because apple became multitask serious. and not due to lag.

AnonD-352420, 06 Oct 2015Android has a good support for multicore CPU deep in its code, every app that doesn't tell the... moreOh for heaven's sake. The use of the number of threads and cores a CPU uses is dependent on HOW the programmers created the runtime code for the app, and still in at least 90% of cases apps are single-threaded and use 1 main core. They can use the other cores but only as support. Think of it as the main core being 80-100% utilized while the other cores only at around 10-20%.
Unless a new discovery for efficient multi-threading comes about, single-core performance is still among the most important assets a CPU needs. This is speaking from a computer science and programming perspective.
If you still doubt it, ask yourself, Which processor will you buy for your PC? Intel or AMD? Pretty sure the majority of people will pick Intel. In the mobile area, ARM is AMD and Apple is Intel. Simple as that.
but what about UI and not so good multitasking? So much power won't be that good if Sam's android OS is not refined.
RejZoR, 06 Oct 2015I'm wondering, how well apps even use multi-core CPU's? Are octa core CPU's really that useful... moreAndroid has a good support for multicore CPU deep in its code, every app that doesn't tell the CPU to only use one core (like benchmark apps that tests single core performance) automatically uses all cores just like the CPU drivers allows them. So if an android app can use all 8 cores depends on if the CPU is a true octacore solution or a double quadcore solution. The single core test is all in all just not relevant for daily use
