Samsung With 8 Core Processor In February? [RUMOR]

A few months ago ARM had announced the big.LITTLE technology : Energy-saving Cortex-A7 cores for everyday use and powerful Cortex-A15 cores for compute-intensive tasks should allow for the future, this processor will improve the balance between power and efficiency. So you can say that it is with 8 core procesoor.Android is good

If everything goes according to the EETimes , Samsung is the first manufacturer who sends the big.LITTLE technology into the race. In a 28nm process manufactured SoC with two quad-core clusters would then provide in the future for power and an efficiency mode in everyday life. According to EETimes, it is a Cortex-A7 quad-core type with 1.2 Ghz per core, and a hi-power Cortex-A15 Dual-Core 1.8 GHz per core and 2MB L2 cache.

Power in the addition at eight cores, actually active "only" up to four cores at the same time, insofar as it would be more correct to speak of a dual quad-core SoC. It sounds really interesting, in any case, what comes here next year and also helps to extend the term.


8core processor for Samsung

Now of course, is the question: Do we need really? An 8 core processor in a smartphone or tablet makes no sense to me. For if such a processor is installed in a device, I want to know how long the battery lasts through, 6 hours or less?
