Good news for a small tablets not phones
1Ghz is more than enough for a phone and its camera and display.
No need for 1080p video recording or HD display in a phone.
My dream is Windows 7 in a small device in my pocket with high performance.
People will be paying more for the processor rather than the device itself. I mean, this processor will cost much more than the other parts and hardware of the device altogether. I'm not going to buy a phone just for the processor. Not worth it.
mark786, 16 Sep 2011Hahahhaha lol k sure :)... but still, phones dont need that advance pros n gpusWell believe me it does. Having more cores means more multitasking without impacting the phone's snappiness and perceived user performance. As memory increases in phones, more cores will be quite useful for background apps.
So are we likely to see these Quad core chips or the nVidia Kal El chips in any commercially available devices in 2011?
This is the boombastic news or review i ever heard on gsmarena!!!Now thats what we called a Dragon power...!
At last some good news,,these super power units are helped by the inclusion of better efficiency.So even tho they are getting more powerfull than my laptop they have paid attention to a big bugbear of everybodys and that battery life...Batterys have not changed over the last decade but tech has gone up exponentially and its thanks to the chip industry striving for power efficiency that we get reasonable battery life...
So diplays have caught up and CPU/GPU now battery tech has to evolve and quality of apps and quality of cameras/video..I find 5 MP fine for my use but real lens zoom would be good and it could be done with the lenses moving up and down not in and out to keep compactness.
In a mobile device will all that additional power really benefit the device ? The law of diminishing returns suggest that at one point or another no further benefit can be obtained,Poor battery life and a huge dent in one's wallet maybe the only outcome of such a device.
Zapatazuparta, 16 Sep 2011Sammy....hear me... I want a 3 GHZ, quad core wave 4 next year...and quad core compatible BADA... moreWhen devices getting more clever, human will become more stupid and lazy..that is a fact.
mark786, 16 Sep 2011as i said... for all these tasks a 1ghz dual pro is enough.... no need of a 2.5 ghz quad core proStick to your duo-core and i'll go for the quad. What harm is there anyway even when a 5Ghz is incorporated????? No one is threatening to shoot you if you don't get one!!!
Sammy....hear me... I want a 3 GHZ, quad core wave 4 next year...and quad core compatible BADA 3.0......
My god...just in a couple of years the technology is evolving light speed....sooooooo fast.....
I think we will get more addicted to these VerySmartphones....and one day with the IBM's new invented (learning-thinking-deciding)chip the phones will be clever than us...
Than the TERMINATOR gets real....
unbelievable .....whoooo 2.5 ghz quad core on a mobile.we can expect this on GS III..then I would say RIP to my pc
Advantages of Snapdragon SoC (Scorpion Processor and Adreno GPU):
Xperia Play has a single-core 1GHz Snapdragon processor and an Adreno 205 GPU, however this doesn't put it behind the other SoC's out there (explained below)
Many people believe Adreno to be weaker than NVIDIA Tegra2 or PowerVR, but that isn't the case!
The truth is that the latter two seem good on paper and benchmarks, but their practical performance isn't up to the mark.
i. Adreno GPU is efficient and powerful:
Game developers find Adreno a better GPU when it comes to complex game effects. It handles them in a faster, better and power efficient way.
ii. Adreno is friendly to the battery:
Consider NVIDIA's Tegra2 GPU, which requires a heavy dependance on the CPU for it's optimal performance, and that reduces it's battery efficiency.
Follow the link in Techdread's thread to find a thorough comparison from Game developers' point of view.
iii. Snapdragon SoC has hidden tricks up it's sleeve
Adreno GPU and Scorpion CPU has some really cool optimizations up it's sleeve, which makes it better in most tasks than the other options.
e.g. Adreno has support for Hardware acceleration in Flash content. In a video test result, Snapdragon on Xperia Arc played a 720p Youtube video perfectly, whereas other major dual-core devices lagged!
See video below:
Paul Jacobs, Qualcomm's boss says that Single core snapdragon with latest drivers outperform the current dual core processors.
"Looking at benchmarking tests for our single core product, it outperforms against dual core products from our competitors,’ said Jacbos.
He added: ‘The performance that you can get is literally much more than just counting the number of cores on a chip - it about how these cores work together seamlessly and efficiently. Compared to our competitors' [dual-core chips] they use 50 to 75 per cent more power to deliver the same perfomace compared to our single-core CPUs.’
iv. Snapdragon has DEVELOPER SUPPORT
Snapdragon is widely being supported by developers and alot of games for it are being made.
What hardware advantage does any SoC give the device if it has little developer support??
How many times have you seen these words on game threads: Make this for SGS2 please!!
v. Xperia series has the latest drivers for Snapdragon and Adreno, getting the most out of them.
(vi. BONUS : Custom kernel from DoomLord can boost the already-so-efficient CPU to 1.9 GHz B-) )
