ARM chips feel a bit like Intel in the early days. When you couldn't really tinker with them much, and the architecture just wasn't mature enough to overclock the hell out of.

why not do 6 cores instead of jumping straight to 8 at the same time.

^ Up to all eight cores at the same time.
It's done on a thread basis.

My current Note 2 will be my last exynos device as long as they keep not releasing sources and documentation.
For once, I'd like to flash stable full-speed cyanogen mod and AOKP roms.

Why didn't they enabled all 8 cores in the first place to save all that hassle? =(


You have to remember that Samsung doesnt really design the architecture of the chips ARM does that, it wasnt designed for all 8 cores to work at the same time. Samsung have probably been working on a way to use all 8 cores since the beginning but have only now managed to release it to the public. At the end of the day its a bonus to those with the chip in their phones

Once again an "APPLE" announcement pays dividends to some "Android" folks. I suspect SAMSUNG had the ability to do this all along; they just didn't need to until the fruit company announced a 64bit phone!

there goes performance, the 4 faaster A15 will down clock to the slower A7, then there is instruction sets that A15 supports that A7 cant!

If this update does the trick for the ODROID XU too , it will be the game changer for the competition to the Parallela. Just wondering how this update works on and which one of this beauties will be on my desk ?
