Good news! :)
Also I hope that whining and crying people will avoid this article because it sucks to read such comments like "There is no proper software which could utilize whole power potential..." or "Why we need such power on smartphone or tablets..."

Android requires this, due to heavy hardware requirements.

Future looks bright for mobile and tablets alike...this could be a game changer in unification of devices!

was hoping for 2013 so that the GS IV would feature it ! :(
well, we can still hope :D

How would that even be possible when they just announced it today? There are so many things they have to work out before they get even close to manufacturing it. It takes at least a year to get a certain technology mass-produced. For example, the screen that is featured on the Nexus 10 was announced by Samsung in, I believe, May 2011. It took them over a year to finally bring it to the market and mass-produce it.

Maybe GS V. But definitely not the GS IV. The specs for the GS IV have been frozen at this point. The new ARM chips won't be shipping until late 2013 at the earliest.

Nah, not frozen. It's definitely an A15-quad-core exynos :p

Check this out...http://www.slashgear.com/ibm-claims-chip-breakthrough-using-carbon-nanotubes-30254812/
With these chips including the carbon nanotubes. We would have some awsome chips. The carbon nanotubes would allow the chips to get even smaller and faster.

u must be unaware that windows 8 can run on ARM processors

You must be unaware that i just commented a joke.

Waiting for a phone with the A15 exynos chipset then in 2 years I'll be ready for when these come out :D

People are probably saying "Dammmm 2014?" Without realizing that it's around the corner. By 2016, don't be surprised if Core-i7 capable mobile processors emerge.
Which means your next gaming console will visually throw you off your chair, (since games like Battlefield 3 on Ultra Settings already do), and your desktops...well, you get the point.

Intel is really lagging behind on its mobile processor advancement...
11. Fallin (Posts: 54; Member since: 10 Oct 2011)
Check this out from Intel

Or, they are going to have to really step up their game if they want to be relevant in the market.

This is just amazing! With IBM nanotube transistors we could up to 50GHz-100GHz+ in mobile devices. Imagine mobile games by that time and the operating systems. We'll probably have holographic displays by that time with bendable, hell foldable, displays! Batteries will have a more solid algebraic architecture for far more better battery. If your complaining please lay down and take a nap. These guys know what they are doing. That's why they make the technology and we don't. Sheesh...

This will also deliver a extreme end transformation computing and multitasking
and thro servers and revolutionise user experience. Good luck Arm.

wait wait wait..... they already announce cortex a50 but cortex a15 isn't widely use yet?
and about that 64-bit, will they replace or function like intel chips now?
20. drahmad (Posts: 478; Member since: 20 Aug 2011)
no. they will have backward compatibility.

BEFORE YOU JUMP TO ANY CONCLUSION, please read carefully what i am about to say:
The huge processing power we see these days coming especially from Android is overkill, it is not used at it's full potential. Why am I saying this?
Well recently I bought the HTC Sensation XL which is a single core 1.5 Ghz, 768 mb of RAM and the old Adreno 205 GPU. I swear, there is not a single game my HTC can't play ! And it plays all these games without any lag and choppiness. All the latest games like NOVA 3, NFS series and shooting games with complex games are handled flawlessly by A SINGLE CORE android phone.
So, in my opinion, dual core is enough for the time being because there aren't any complex apps that put those QUAD CORE and 2 GB of RAM to work. It's more of a marketing strategy.
I have a lot more to say but then my comment would be too large and no one would read it. Cheers !
