NovaThor L8580 is built with the modern 28nm process and ST-Ericsson claims it allows speed "normally reserved for the PC market,” as well as 35% reduction in power consumption compared to leading ARM-based chipsets at similar frequencies...

a9 can't outmatch s600 or s800...i guess

Guess is right. Smaller processors as far as I know should only expect a lower power consumption at the same clock speed as far as I know.

sony is already using the snap dragon S4 in the Z bro lol but hey whos to say they wont consider ST in the future, that is if the S800 doesn't already have that spot ;)

I don't think ST - Ericsson (Joint venture between ST Microelectronics and Ericsson) belongs to Sony. Sony Ericsson was a joint venture between Sony and Ericsson and Sony bought the share of Ericsson in that particular venture not the Ericsson company itself.

Sony got nothing to do with ST ericsson anymore,they are both different companies

Now I'd like to see the A7 from the big little configuration, put into a 12 core 1.4Ghz SoC :p
I think the optimal solution is yet to be found

The 6.44" Togari might use this beast. Remember the rumour that "neither qualcomm nor nvidia is in the mix"?

I was thinking the same thing maybe sony already had some inside info to make that statement.
Before this news i was almost certain it would be the exynos

This is impressive...
Global LTE ...great
28nm great for batter consumption.
power VR sgx544 great...
