Tizen Takeover, 11 Jun 2012SOOOO True Intel. That's why I support Intel. Intel knows how to fully utilize a core BEFORE... moreI donot wish to deny/accept anything about the article at this moment. Its quite clear from Bell's statement
--"Android does not make as effective use of multiple cores as it could, and I think - frankly - some of this work could be done by the vendors who create the SoCs, but they just haven't bothered to do it. "--
And i guess the ARM architechture has limitations to it, just me though. tahts the reason why SoC manufacturers did not implement it.
On a second thought, Why Intel planned to release a dual core for android? they intend to hihglight this limitation with other ARM based SoCs.(as intel uses the x86 based architechture)
that said, a point to note here is Intel was a complete failure in SMARTPHONE SOCs till date.
The only strong point they had till date is the 32nm architechture which had an edge over the ARM designs in power consumption. However, recent and upcoming ARM desings have 28nm.
I expect a better chip from Intel as both Google and MS are trying to optimise the code for X86 based architechture.
Lastly, with all due respect for the Guys at XDA, i wish someone will definitely come up with a better Scheduler.
Android makes poor use of those multi-core processors, but it makes quite a good use of YOU
Talk about sour grapes...Intel cant hold a candle to ARM on mobile architecture, so they start dissing the current architectures...
Surprise Industry Fact: ARM's
Biggest Customer is Intel!
7% (Tom's hardware) !
Since the Intel single core cpu does so well compared to the multi-cores, it seems that its right.
And since intel suggest the problem, it seems like its constructive critique. In other words, they just have to fix that scheduler, and multi-cores will be a go.
lol..whats the use of chargers??hahaha..nokia must be renamed...it must be SUCKIA..lol..
people dont need phones woth long lasting battery with a trash os..lol
Actually, 11 Jun 2012Intel has an Android phone sold in India.yup its xylo phone but it has atom processor.
Finally a legitimate statement from a chip manufacturing company itself.
For android they do not take full advantage of chips. All the fanboys who were stating that multicore chips helps in so many ways .. please take it in ur face .. lol
Android sees only numbers and tries to fool people ... quad core chips dual core chips ... just wasting resources and hence the cost of phones is high. Utilize the resources properly.
Nokia single CPU phones are simpler to operate and 100% trust worth than dual CPU hanging and slowing down Android system which needs App Killer regularly.. Android yet to fix lots of Bugs...
i agree with him. we are using a big 15gb os with just a single core computer, i wonder why the hell does that android require a quad core processor, i think its not using processor effectively. as compared to android windows phone works fine even with 1ghz single core without any lag in any game or app
AnonD-58534, 11 Jun 2012Doesn't matter . Android still rocks . U mad Nokia ? :D and yet another android fanboy who yells this same and same nonsense.
and it's intel stating that it's inefficient in terms of using multi cores in android not nokia. try to read more.
No offense to anyone. I am using xperia play. And as i go thru the game reviews on android market,....i find comments regarding lags in games even from dual-core users,.....and most of those titles run butter smooth on my single-core x play!
Where lies the actual advantage then?
We claim, "let more graphic-heavy games optimised for multi-cores arrive!"
Doesn't the same statement sound like, "no advantage as far as the present goes"?
As much as am a fan of Intel, this statement is stupid considering the fact that Android is pure open Source and the way it should be modified and provide support for multi cores is purely dependent on the phone/tablet manufacturer. Anything and everything in Android is highly customizable. So this is not Android's fault. Dont judge a platform that is purely open source. For a mobile platform that is dished out free of cost, they have done an awesome job. And performance testers know how these phones operate with dual or multi cores.
SOOOO True Intel. That's why I support Intel. Intel knows how to fully utilize a core BEFORE just randomly throwing unused cores in just to make the spec sheet look good. A Single Core Intel processor will Crap on the best Exynos, Snapdragon, TI Omap Etc Quad Core device because they will have things that actually UTILIZE the cores.
This is one main reason I support Tizen and another reason I supported MeeGo. Intel know how to use their product. They absolutely suck at marketing and getting their product out to the mass market but that is where Samsung can come in. Nokia messed up pretty big when they put MeeGo on the backburner.
Not downing WP but Nokia should've used MeeGo as the Primary high end OS.
