specially choosen tests! in different tests intel would have no chances. and power max consumption of intel is much higher than arm. cortex a9 is old try compare it to tegra 3 or a15/snapdragon s4. this cpu has so slow graphic card. oh and it costs more than 60$ vs 20$ for ARM 2x core cortex a9.
hah! take that dual/quad core fanboy!
See what intel come up with.. a power efficient single core that is fast enough to out run arm dual cores in the market..
but intel should coperate with nvidia or amd with graphics. As most people know, it has a bad rep with graphics.
hopefully this doesnt overheats.. cant wajt for intels mobile dual core cpus. Double kill!
Ugly design...very ugly imo. we all know this will fall by the wayside.
A single processor with better performance than the Dual Processor?
waiting for other comments...
I really applaud and eager to wait for Intel based Android devices, at the same time however I fear for diversification. Look at how it is with TI, Qualcomm, Samsung, and nVidia. All of them have cpu and SoC, however nVidia refuses to release source codes and this gives manufacturers and excuse to delay updating firmware(LG im looking at you). I really am excited, 2012 will be a good year to upgrade my Galaxy Nexus. Hopefully we'll see Fujitsu's Tegra 3 in the US, and maybe Huawei's Ascend's come to the US as well. I feel sorry for Nokia fanboy's, they will never in their wildest dreams get a phone like this, not for 3-4 years at least, you guys really need to jump ship to Android devices, promise you guys there are plenty of good experiences with these devices.
it seems like a lost battle to me.
the best of ARM that's already in the market is Tegra 3, and this thing is "smoked" by it.
by the time medfield comes out, it will face Tegra 4 and next generation of snapdragon and Exynos.
I am sure Intel is going to make a big difference here in terms of power consumption and processing speed.
This could probably be implemented into WP7 Tango, assuming the minimum specification requirements have been bumped up. However, I wish for the power consumption to be lower still as battery life from the iPhone 4S, Lumia 800 and Galaxy Nexus is just embarassing.
512MB (megabytes) of L2 cache on the CPU is not possible. At least, not for the next decade or so... Maybe a typo for KB (kilobytes), which is more logical.
Saying that, I'm curious as to why Intel decided to launch their new CPUs in the worlds's biggest market. Ok, good publicity and potential for huge gains since it's, well, a big market.
But I would've thought they first release it first in a smaller market where it can test customer experience, BEFORE moving onto the biggest market on the planet. This being a new platform has the potential of flunking. And flunking in China probably means it'll flunk everywhere too...
...not that I'm saying these CPUs are gonna flunk. It just seems like a very ambitious move. More so considering there already a exists a break-neck mobile CPU market...
