This is very important to understand. Smartphones with four cores means very little when smartphone programs are single threaded. Programs must be multi-threaded to really feel a difference on a quad-core processor. A properly implimented TESLA architecture from NVIDIA with CUDA api would scare the serial processors to jump off a high building. Who can compete with that raw parallel processing ability? I’m waiting NVIDIA…Tegra 4 is a disappointment from the raw power I am looking for. Maybe Tegra 4 is “functional” and offers “battery” saving proformance, but who wants that? Home, car, office, extra batteries….I don’t need battery saving proformance. I want battery eating processing power that puts Samsung and Qualcom in their proper place far behind NVIDIA. Check out NVIDIA Maximus proformance on Youtube sometime. Click the link below to see why multiple processors doesn’t always equal the amazing proformance you might expect. http://scalibq.wordpress.com/2012/06/01/multi-core-and-multi-threading/ Typed on a dual core Snapdragon smartphone.
