That's 25% less power consumption for the same clock speeds as the previous generation. At 3 GHz it won't make any difference from now.

We are truly living in the age of bad decisions and waste of a great potential that most of us have.
Rumor says that Google is trying to makes the Android 5.0 to be less "hardware-intensive" and the Android 5.0 Google Nexus will be running on a dual-core processor instead a quad-core.
Though all these are just rumor, but I'm really hoping Google is working on this direction.
Anonymous, 09 Jul 2013What are you on about? Those low clocked processors are for budget phones.
http://forwardt... moreFirst off your reference is one and a half year old, which in tech world means really really old, too obsolete.
Secondly I said that Intel's low-clocked Atom-based Baytrail smoked/destroyed/humiliated ARM's or Qualcomm's offering by THAT much, while clocked at a humble 1.1Ghz. The only advantage that ARM/Qualcomm has is that most of the apps are not optimized for x86 architecture (for now)
Maybe symbian will coming back. We hope that. Only arm can run symbian i think..
And this is where ARM start playing catch up on Intel.
They are just like AMD, believe in higher frequences will do the trick, whereas Intel go for a more sophisticated solution like today.
Sorry ARM, 2014 will be the year where you see Intel to become the demon from your worst nightmare.
This is 20nm processor my friend which means a lot of power efficiency improvement
kamikazi, 09 Jul 2013WHY? i got galaxy s4 and underclaocked it to 1ghz (octa core ) and it still run mc4 freaking smooth!The Exynos 5 is a 4+4 core processor, not a true octa core. At no time there are eight cores working simultaneously.
That said, a true octa core processor would be waste on a smartphone, because neither the operating systems (iOS, Android 4.x) nor the apps support such wide multiprocessing. The benefits of going from four to eight cores would be marginal at best.
If these companies took all the effort they put into this type of marketing (ie raising the clock speed up as much as they can to give 'impressive' numbers no-one needs), and put it into moving technology forward in a way which matters (power consumption etc), we might one day end up with something amazing.
Good if they implement a way to really use that processing power.
It'd be interesting to have the ability to use our smartphones a desktop CPUs, or mini-servers; to use our normal TVs as they were CPU Monitors, or to be able to boot Windows and Android to work as we need.
Well, if anything, this is good progress, now Angry Birds will take less seconds to load n.n
The increase in frequency will be compensated by lowering the voltage to power on the chips. The power dissipated is dependent of the frequency and the power of two of the voltage. So there will be no need for larger batteries.
Anonymous, 09 Jul 20133 Ghz ARM processors will be 30% faster and 25% less power consuming? Well, if those devices w... morewont need tht capacity batt if they incorporate a kinectic recharger like in those perpetual watches...
black dog, 09 Jul 2013anything more than that is just for bragging and won't really serve an actual purpose any bett... moreThought like that proves you really do miss the point.
Mainframes to PCs
PCs to Notebooks
Notebooks to Tablets
Tablets to Smartphones
That's why you're seeing the processing power in smaller and smaller packages...Get it?
Jack Package, 09 Jul 2013and they are still far far behind Intel's lead. 3Ghz? Intel's gonna smoke them yet again with ... moreWhat are you on about? Those low clocked processors are for budget phones.
Smoked? Yea, what you been smoking?
Potential power save... Heard that one before. Battery heats up and drains faster. How bout make phones like before that held charge at least 3 days no problem and not 10hrs BS
Look for Sony and Samsung to be the first to use these processors in their phones.
Apple? Well, they think their phones are already fast enough and are focusing on neat-o plastic color backs for their next generation phones.
I'm telling you guys, if any normal end-user consumer so us going on about cores/Rams/pixels/benchmark test about the type of phones we have in college or varsity, they would think we are mad. And they hardly notice the lags we see on our phones! Some don't even know that these phones need to be updated! They are currently running on outdated os like froyo or ginger bread! A mere mention about ARM chipsets will just get them confused and I bet you they don't even give a rats a## on what's running under their hood.
