The rivalry between Samsung and Apple is already legendary, so it's no surprise that both companies' fans are trying to prove their favorite products are better than the competition's. The following is just another chapter of the Apple vs Samsung saga, which, sometimes, reveals unimaginable hostility.Since Apple has yet to launch its flagship iPhone product, while Samsung has already released the Galaxy Note 7, someone thought that it would be fun to put the iPhone 6s and Samsung's latest phablet head to head in a performance test.The last year's Apple iPhone 6s featuring a dual-core A9 processor and 2GB RAM was put up against the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 820 CPU and 4GB RAM.It's also worth noting that the Galaxy Note 7's display supports Quad HD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution, while Apple's iPhone 6s features a 1334 x 750 pixels display. Naturally, a huge factor in the performance test is the operating system that these smartphones are running: Android … [Read more...] about iPhone 6s beats Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in performance test

I say they go in and redesign a chip to keep up with the demands and make new partnerships. this is only the opinion of a droid user though. posted on 13 Aug 2012, 22:20 1 45. Dr.Phil (Posts: 1801; Member since: 14 Feb 2011) I agree completely, and I think I should add that what you are saying is most likely what the leaders over at TI are doing right now. The problem is the shareholders are mostly interested in making money, and they want to make money as quickly as possible. So, for them, it would be easier for the company to keep doing what it use to do instead of spending time and money in the mobile market. It's very possible for TI to spend the resources and create a great mobile chip brand, but the … [Read more...] about Comments for : Texas Instruments shareholders want the company to exit the mobile chip business
In light of allegations that some manufacturers are fabricating benchmark tests to make their gear look and smell like a rose when in reality it might actually smell like something else, Qualcomm is backing an effort by Berkeley Design Technology Inc., BDTI, to create new and independent user experience rating scheme for mobile devices.There have been some assertions that Antutu favors Intel based architecture, so this backing by Qualcomm is arguably not without an agenda. According to BDTI, "Many existing mobile benchmarks do not measure attributes relevant to consumers and can be easily manipulated. There is a striking lack of mobile benchmarks that measure actual user experience. Our user-experience-focused tests will include real-world measurements of application performance, battery life, and data transfer speed and delay."The new standard will be designed solely with mobile technology in mind and the benchmarks will note common scenarios rather than complex equations. … [Read more...] about Qualcomm backing development of a new mobile benchmark standard
In early April, it was brought to our attention that Samsung doesn't plan to rely on stock ARM cores to keep up with mobile processor evolution. The technological giant is designing custom CPU cores codenamed Mongoose, which will employ ARMv8 architecture. Rumors suggest the silicon is being worked on since 2011 and is currently deep in testing. We already got to learn elaborate details , such as the core's reported maximum clock speed (2.3GHz) and preliminary benchmark result that posted 45% better single-core performance than the Exynos 7420 in the Galaxy S6. This means the new CPU could bring the typical doubling of performance over a year, which has become the norm in mobile application processors. Today, we get to learn that the latest development tools for ARM cores, which include support for ARM Cortex (A17, A72) cores, also come with support for a certain Samsung Exynos M1 core, which we currently know under the codename Mongoose. This confirms that Samsung is hard at work … [Read more...] about Samsung already testing Exynos chipset with custom CPU cores for the Galaxy S7?
