    More A15 benchmarks (Ubuntu Linux)


    After spending the better part of the past week running continuous open-source Linux benchmarks on the Exynos5-powered Google Nexus 10, the first extensive benchmark results for the Nexus 10 tablet running the Ubuntu Touch Developer Preview are now available. This performance comparison from Ubuntu on the dual-core ARM Cortex-A15 powered device is compared to numerous other ARMv7 and x86 devices. One of the interesting findings from this new round of ARM Linux testing is that the Google Nexus with its dual-core ARM SoC is competitive with AMD's first-generation Phenom Quad-Core processor for some demanding workloads.

    • fyi,

      Samsung Galaxy S IV, it appears, will be powered by two different processors, depending upon the region, just like its predecessor. According to a recent JPMorgan note the phone is expected to sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor in the United States, and a Samsung Exynos 5 Octa in Europe and other regions.

      When Samsung unveiled the eight-core Exynos 5 Octa at CES, it was widely expected that the Samsung Galaxy S IV would feature Samsung's latest innovation. However, according to an earlier report from SamMobile, Samsung seems to have run into some overheating issues with the processor, and Samsung believes the problem will not be fixed in time for the Galaxy S IV launch.

      Now, we seem to be hearing reports to the contrary again, with murmurs that both chips will be used. It is noteworthy that the Japanese and North American variants of Galaxy S III ship with the dual-core Snapdragon S4 MSM8960, instead of Samsung's own quad-core Exynos 4 that powered the phone in other markets.

      SamMobile had claimed to have learnt from its sources that Samsung's next generation flagship will come with Snapdragon 600 inside, clocked at 1.9GHz. Other alleged specifications for the Samsung Galaxy S IV are same as what we had heard earlier, including 2GB RAM, 16/32/64 GB storage options, 13-megapixel camera and a removable battery.

      Samsung has also released a teaser for its Galaxy SIV launch event through its official Twitter account.

    • Wow. A15 is a power hog. There is some major thermal issues here. I cant believe people having complained yet of "extra-toasty" A15 devices...or maybe they havent started yet.

    • and it gets absolutely destroyed in others by factors of 4 to 10 lol !

    • So how useful is it to compare a new Exynos to an obsolete AMD processor that wasn't even competitive when it was introduced? In the tablet space everything will be ranked against the latest Core and Atom offerings.
