I think you don't know that a component called "CCI-400" is broken in the Exynos Octa. This component was a vital component which would have helped increase both performance and battery life if it wasn't broken. So you may have to wait until Note 3 or S5 to see a properly functioning chip.

According to Samsung Exynos there is nothing wrong with CCI and no one has verified that it has been disabled hardware level, its just mere speculation.

Does this allow for Heterogenous Multi-Processing mode to be used on big.LITTLE?
