Intel says Android not ready for multiple-core processors
0. phoneArena 10 Jun 2012, 18:05 posted on
According to Intel, tests that the chip producer has run show that not only is Android not taking advantage of having a multiple core processor, it could actually be a detriment to the performance of Google's open-source OS...

Intel, I'll take your words, lets see what you can do in the smartphone market!

To everyone who say that intel is wrong-
these are not marketing talks done by intel... what they are saying is true. A single core intel mobile processor beats dual core A9 arm processors with huge margin and is almost equivalent(and even greater in some aspects) to dual core A15 arm processors.
This is called true optimization!!!

i think intel just doesnt like continually losing in the low power mobile sector and is throwing sour grapes.

now on this article it is finally clear to me that most people are really dumb who brag about multicore support where most comments shows here what they know about it tahahahaa absolutly nothing about the Processor architecture/threading or multitasking/power management and yet they are so fool to say "yeah my phone is dual core" pity OEM guys really made a fool out of normal people by showing them facts they like to hear not the actuall facts

Regardless of cores. The graphics on Intel chips suck.

I've Never Heard So Much un-Intel-igent FUD and Hyperbole From One Such Non-Techie (has mechanical engineering degree, nothing to due w/ chip fabrication) Corporate GM Mouthpiece in All My Life!!!
I want to know, did Mike Bell actually say this and more importantly.... WHEN did he say it? Because since Google updated to the newest Linux Kernel, it was true Android had problems with it's thread scheduler. But..... can we really and I mean really trust a known BOGUS TABLOID SITE known for spreading FUD? How do we know this interview isn't from last year prior to the Linux Kernel upgrade to Android? We don't, because by this time the "he said... she said" interview becomes only a rumor!
Because unless Mike Bell is so thick headed and dense, that his brains are covered in the shizt piling up from not using the toilet, he should know better. Tests performed? When? Not now because Android is now using CFS (The Completely Fair Scheduler). It's also being used on some of Biggest Super Computers running Linux, like IBM's Blue Gene, etc and LINUX is known to be the Operating System of Choice by all the technical and scientific minds both corporate and institutional!
CFS is probably the most powerful Thread Scheduler in the industry and guess what? It's being used in Android on Quad Core and even SMP (multiple processors) devices. So to say that Android is NOT ready for Multicore Processors is about as ASININE as telling Qualcom (w/ Quads and Dual cores), Samsung (with Quads n Dual cores), TI, Sony, and others that the Billions of Dollars they've spent on them running Android has been wasted!
Mike Bell must think this will help their ridiculously lame Medfield single core at least gain some traction in the mobile industry. But on the contrary, when the Intel-i-stench in the air clears. Intel will still be on the outside looking in when it comes to mobile devices. Especially since they won't have graphics worth a shizt until they have PowerVR GPU's sometime in late 2013 or 2014!
