If you'd read my post adequately you would have noted, that the specifically said 'smartphone' GPU's
Instead you seem to have been so obsessed in trying to sound clever, you've just gone on a little rant without considering what it is you were ranting about.
At 20nm the Tegra X1, power requirements / Thermal properties render it unsuitable for smartphone application.
Maybe you should take your own advice and not chime in on things you haven't quite grasped!!!!
Also, as to your juvenile dig at my being some kind of Apple fanboy, your the one with a nickname that reekes of fanboyism pal! I just like tech, all tech, don't much care who makes it.

If yes, why not even one manufacturer has used it in an actual mobile for 6 months? Don't tell me it is due to cost.

Conclusion : So we can compare the A9 with Exynos 8890 in the Near Future. it does not matter if they are made using 20nm or 14nm if CPU and/or GPU are Advanced enough they will show their superior performance to other chipsets :) . If you don't know something just don't talk about it.

It appears that Samsung is now making use of the trade secrets that it stole from TSMC. *slow clap* :|
Since Marshmallow is already very good and snappy on even modest hardware, maybe Google should mandate that all Android phones run stock Android - but OEMs are free to add their apps (but not mess around with the actual kernel) for variety.
People will then see they don't need to buy new phones so often, because their current phone will be good for years, along with updates.
Your assuming an awful lot there.
There is no evidence to suggest that doze will offer the same results when applied to Touchwiz (and it's various bespoke features and functions) as we have seen in stock android.
And you have to remember that doze is itself an attempt by Google to get Android to try to replicate the behaviour that has been a part of IOS for a long time. It's not Google jumping ahead, it's them playing catch up.
Now, I have never heard of any heating issue's linked to the A8. However if that was the case, it would likely be down mainly to the flawed 20nm process. Yet due to the more efficient nature of IOS versus Android, and the fact that Apple choose to get better performance by designing wider cores (as opposed to the industry standard method of simply ramping up clock speeds), any such issue's would not have been as readily apparent.
As to your point about it not being fair to compare custom core designs to standard cores, no I wouldn't agree with that. A core is a core, going custom with the design doesn't in and of itself guarantee increased performance/efficiency (though obviously that is the desired effect)
Lex79, 13 Nov 2015That's weird, the post in which I am referring to has you specifically mentioning the iPhone 6... moreThe first part about battery was about the 6s, the second part about gpu was about the 6 (only because the test wasn't repeated for the 6s).
The note5 comes out on top for efficiency (bigger, higher resolution, etc., and still has same endurance rating).
If you think its unfair because of 14nm then you could say its unfair because Samsung wasn't using custom cores, etc. And again, my post wasn't about performance, it was about battery and heat.
What I was saying is that supposed overheating isn't existent, even if the comparison is made with the 6 (perfectly appropriate, 6 month gap), it still means that android phones don't have a big heating issue.
And in regards to battery, not only is android not behind, but they're actually ahead of even the latest release. You have to remember that he is speaking about os, not the device. Which means you have to look at android marshmallow as it came out same time as ios9 in the 6s. If the note5 had doze its rating would blow the 6s away.
Sohail.rc, 13 Nov 2015u dont need to listen it.you have to experience it Believe me, I did. beyond 1080p there aren't any benefits on a smartphone, only drawbacks. On a tablet - yes, there are benefits.

But if as you say it was the iPhone 6 (or Plus) you had in mind, then a comparison to the performance of the Note 5 is a little unfair, The iPhone 6/Plus is the better part of a year older than the Note 5, and the A8 is built using the inferior (and flawed) 20nm manufacturing process in comparison to the Exynos 7420.
A comparison between the Note 5 and iPhone 6S series would make more sense, in this case and from multiple performance angles (including efficiency) the A9 in the iPhone is superior.

Most benchmarks show a definite edge in performance in GPU performance (both on screen and off) for the iPhone 6S Plus over the Note 5.
Not trying to be funny or anything, but if you are going to make those comments, I 'd be interested in where you are getting the information.

Once the note5 gets doze from marshmallow it will be better. This is despite the note5 having a bigger screen.
From GPU benchmarks stability is about the same too, slightly lower due to more pixels (but for some reason iphones have bigger drops in fps).
Some IT consultant you are.
Anonymous, 13 Nov 2015oh really? so movies are recorded at 1080p? interesting..Can you tell any benefits or not ? :/
Arif238, 13 Nov 2015Which GPU is better Adreno 330 in SD 801 or Adreno 418 in SD 808 as Adreno 420 in SD 805 beats... moreAll things being equal the 418 is supposed to be 20% faster than the 330. And the 420 is 40% faster than the 330.
So the Adreno 420 is overall the strongest of the 3, however it's only available in the Snapdragon 805, which to date has only been used in two smartphones (not sure if it made it's way into any tablets), the Nexus 6 and the Note 4 (well one variant of it anyway), and doesn't look as though its going to be utilised in any further devices anytime soon.
Also, though I really wouldn't recommend doing so, if you were to pick up a smartphone in the view of looking to get the best GPU of these 3, bear in mind that the Snapdragon 805 & 801 can be considered outdated now due to them running on the old Armv7 32-bit architecture.
Personally, of these three, I would go for a device running the Snapdragon 808, it performed just fine on the LG G4 I was using until very recently .
Anonymous, 12 Nov 2015Gpu on iphone currently sucks and it powers something over 720p while gs6 powers 4 times bigge... moreThe sheer lack of knowledge you have just displayed is incredible!
The PowerVR GT-7600 in the iPhone 6S is the current record holder as far as smartphone GPu's are concerned in the GFXBenchmark 'Manhattan' off screen test, this test uses a standard virtual resolution (it's off screen remember) of 1080p, and the iPhone 6S scores an average of 39.5fps. The Galaxy S6 however in this same test scores 24fps, and remember resolution is done virtually (off screen) on both at 1080p.
Yes the Galaxy S6 scores higher than the iPhone 6 (as that is what you specifically referred to in your post), but that was released in 2014, the 6S is the latest iPhone and more of a direct competitor to the Galaxy S6.
If you require further proof of just how good the A9 is as an overall SOC, then I gladly refer you to the recent review run by Anandech:
Pay close attention to the verdict regarding the A9 in particular, it's something along the lines of "the A9 is the best SOC in a Smartphone to date".
And I for one am inclined to believe the guys at Anandtech over the vast majority numpty's that post on these forums!
