Analysis: Stuck with Cortex-A53, next stop Cortex-A72
The 64-bit Cortex-A57 core is ARM’s latest and greatest CPU design, but very few chipmakers are actually building products based on this flagship core. In fact, many are skipping it altogether, so what’s going on here?
Neck and neck with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810
While Qualcomm's 20nm Snapdragon 810 SoC might be the star of upcoming flagship smartphones, it appears that MediaTek has its own horse for the race, the octa-core MT6795.
Beats Intel and Apple
Fudzilla has found out that the Samsung Galaxy S6 will be one of the first devices to boast a non-Intel chip build around a 14nm process.
Four Cortex-A53 cores
Chinese SoC designer Allwinner has announced a new $5 chip that should bring 64-bit computing and support for high resolution panels to low-end tablets.
Eight Cortex-A53 and CDMA for China
MediaTek is definitely shaping up to become a serious competitor in the smartphone SoC market. The company started the octa-core thing last year, with a frugal Cortex-A7 chip and in 2015 most players are following with big.LITTLE chips.
