We can predict the quad-core processor is not the end of the development of intelligent mobile phone, but it is hard to imagine there has manufacturer planning 8-core ARM chip product, and it’s said that it will debut on International Solid-State Circuits Conference in February 19th next year. The manufacturer is Samsung.
According to reports, Samsung 8-core chip program uses ARM ” big.LITTLE ” technology new products, that is to combine a quad core 1.8GHz ARM Cortex-A15 processor performance with a quad core 1.2GHz Cortex-A7 processor energy-saving effect, so that one application software can achieve seamless switching between the two processors.
Allegedly, the Cortex-A7 will be made by the 28 nm process production line, and it will be 5 times smaller than the current Cortex-A8, but more efficient.
Although it sounds crazy, it’s visible that the next year’s intelligent mobile phone field and tablet pc area will have a greater improvement in terms of performance.
