QUAD-CORE PRO­CES­SORS

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - COVER STORY -

The mo­bile in­dus­try took a long time to be in­tro­duced to dual-core pro­ces­sors. In 2011, smart­phones and tablets like the Sam­sung Gal­axy S II, Ap­ple iphone 4 S, LG Op­ti­mus 2x and Ap­ple ipad 2 shone with their stun­ning dual-core per­for­mance.

This was when chip man­u­fac­tur­ers Qual­comm and Nvidia shared their vi­sion of giv­ing quad­core com­put­ing power to mo­bile de­vices. But this doesn’t mean dual-core was only a step­ping stone for faster pro­ces­sors. As the first set of quad-core phones line up for launch this year, there should be a lot of ac­tion lined up in the dual-core seg­ment too. The new pro­ces­sors are aimed at Pc-like per­for­mance while im­prov­ing the mo­bile ex­pe­ri­ence, es­pe­cially with bet­ter bat­tery life.

A faster web ex­pe­ri­ence, quick multi-task­ing, stereo 3D for videos, gam­ing and cam­era op­tics of up to 32MP are a few pos­si­bil­i­ties that quad-core can in­tro­duce to these mo­bile com­put­ing de­vices.
