We have already written about Samsung plans to use in its future flagship Android-smartphone Galaxy S IV latest SoC Samsung Exynos 5450 , which includes the quartet core ARM Cortex-A15 processor with a clock frequency up to 2 GHz and graphics Mali-658. However, it now appears that the development at Samsung Electronics is even more interesting solution that can leave behind to remember the SoC in terms of efficiency.
Cortex-A15 and Cortex-A7
For example, for a simple operation that does not require large computational resources to be employed energy-core Cortex-A7, in the case of resource-intensive tasks (decode HD-video, etc.) came into play much more powerful core Cortex-A15. Such a concept will significantly reduce power consumption and extend battery life for mobile devices, and she is somewhat similar scheme 4-PLUS-1 are implemented in the platform NVIDIA Tegra 3 with its subsidiary kernel. Details on the development of its Samsung will present at the ISSCC conference in February.
