Nice all around!I wonder why they didn't go with new Rogue 7 gen & same two cluster (basic model) as it's much more power efficient?

@aldaiaWell there where speculation that they (Intel) even what to bay MediaTek. A little to late now!I never heard about A17? Last core that I know ARM did introduced is a A12 & first market designs are expected in 1Q this year.As it's performance wise presented hire it looks like a stripped down (only 32 bit) Cortex A57...

I thought this wasn't out until H2, not Q2. Considering ARM just announced the A17 and they're saying 2015, I didn't think MediaTek was jumping the gun by that much.

Cortex A17 is a up to 60% (around 4 dmips) faster from A9 & this put him to be around 14% faster then A15.
Then again this specification puts CPU clock speeds much higher than ARM did bat I don't doubt that they can do it as they did with A7.

8 cores? Common, really? When people will understand that if you really want power at low consumption you have to move from the 8 cores ARM to a 2 cores x86?ARM was not designed for power computing, it's a fact. They are very competent in their area but now it's the limit of it, 8 cores? ... How many of us have 8 physical cores in a laptop or a desktop? But still we have at least twice the computational power.It would be time for manufacturer to stop just selling more cores, it's pretty useless after a point as Android is not multitask-efficient so far and very few apps can compose with more than 2 cores...
