Apple A9 will show everyone who hype with more cores that core count doesn't mean anything.

Better 2 Cores > Weak 10 Cores

AFAIK you can't use all 10 cores at the same time. The OS will switch to a different cluster depending on the task at hand: dual core beastly cluster for gaming, quad core medium cores for skype/watching videos, quad core light weight cores for web browsing and when the phone is locked.

brilliant. more cores, better sales in expanding markets but having the latest process node is crucial for longer term success. I see an AMD here providing more cores to the consumers to compete with Intel's.

why have two sets of a53 clusters? Why not just clock manage the 4x a53 cluster, and that gets rid of 4 cores and still accomplishes the same thing
