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!
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 ?
