Up­com­ing quads

Electronics For You - - Chips -

Quad-core smart­phones are guar­an­teed to be part of the next slew of high-end de­vices that aim to pro­vide even greater per­for­mance im­prove­ment. Quad-core tablets have al­ready been re­leased, like the ASUS Eee Trans­former Prime and the Len­ovo Idea­pad K2.

Te­gra 3

NVIDIA’S KAL­EL/ Te­gra 3 is a quad­core chip with a GPU that is claimed to be three times faster than Te­gra 2. The over­all per­for­mance is es­ti­mated to be five times the per­for­mance of Te­gra 2.

Project Kal- El pro­ces­sor im­ple­ments a novel vari­able sym­met­ric mul­ti­pro­cess­ing (VSMP) tech­nol­ogy. VSMP in­cludes a fifth CPU core (the ‘com­pan­ion’ core) built us­ing a spe­cial low-power sil­i­con process that ex­e­cutes tasks at low fre­quency for ac­tive standby mode, mu­sic play­back and video play­back. All five CPU cores are iden­ti­cal ARM Cor­tex A9 CPUS, which are in­di­vid­u­ally en­abled and dis­abled based on the work load.

Exynos 4412

Sam­sung has pro­vided sup­port for Exynos 4412 on its de­vel­op­ment boards. The 4412 is sim­i­lar to the Exynos 4212 and takes its que from the ARM Cor­tex A9 plat­form tout­ing four CPU cores. Each core has a clock speed of 1.5 GHZ like that of the 4212.
