    From Anandtech's latest article.. A15 won't fit into smartphones because

    Never thought I'd say this so soon, but Intel is the LOW POWER KING.

      Don't worry... you won't
      It was due to the display... W510 low brightness...INTel cheats !!!!!

      "due to display and other power advantages in the W510 itself and not necessarily indicative of an SoC advantage."

      • You are only fooling yourself with this latest angle you are using (display) to dismiss Clovertrail. Anand isolated both the cpu and gpu power rails when running benchmarks and Clovertrail was more efficient than Tegra 3 every time on both cpu and gpu. The Exynos 5 was even more dreadful than Tegra 3, seems the A15 and Mali T604 can burn 4W *each* when going flat out so if Tegra 4 consumes less than 10W under peak load it will be an achievement ;-). So it appears Intel and Qualcomm (and Apple) make the best low power SoCs today ...

      • From the final word section

        The Cortex A15 data is honestly the most intriguing. I'm not sure how the first A15 based smartphone SoCs will compare to Exynos 5 Dual in terms of power consumption, but at least based on the data here it looks like Cortex A15 is really in a league of its own when it comes to power consumption. Depending on the task that may not be an issue, but you still need a chassis that's capable of dissipating 1 - 4x the power of a present day smartphone SoC made by Qualcomm or Intel. Obviously for tablets the Cortex A15 can work just fine, but I am curious to see what will happen in a smartphone form factor. With lower voltage/clocks and a well architected turbo mode it may be possible to deliver reasonable battery life, but simply tossing the Exynos 5 Dual from the Nexus 10 into a smartphone isn't going to work well. It's very obvious to me why ARM proposed big.LITTLE with Cortex A15 and why Apple designed Swift
