ARM DynamIQ tech helps multi-core chips balance performance, efficiency

It’s been more than half a decade since chip designer ARM unveiled its big.LITTLE technology, which allows multi-core chips to combine a cluster of high-performance CPU cores with another cluster of lower-performance, energy-efficient CPU cores. The result has been quad-core, hexa-core, and octa-core chips that can use every core at once, or just those that […]

Samsung working on quad-core ARM Cortex-A15 chip with 4 extra low power cores

Samsung plans to introduce a new processor for phones, tablets and other mobile devices in February. Some folks are calling the new chip an 8-core processor, and that’s actually kind of true. But really, it will offer the performance of a high-end quad-core ARM-based processor and the power savings of a low-power quad-core ARM chip. […]
