Intel says Android not ready for multiple-core processors

0. phoneArena posted on 10 Jun 2012, 18:05

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...

I have an iphone and optimus 3D too. I still happy with both of them. I agree with u, optimus 3D has a good performance, better than samsung gs2.

So says an iPhone fan that probably upgrades to every new version of the iPhone..that has such a great user experience...one really wouldnt need to upgrade, right?

We ALL are sheep when it comes to specs for the most part.

For me it costs nothing to upgrade because I sell my iPhone for more than I bought it. The $200 I spent on the 3GS is all I've spent to go to the 4 and 4S. I sold the 3GS and the 4 for $260 each.

Wow... is this the same "half baked OS" that you always claim is the purest of copies of none other than iOS itself? If it is such a perfect copy of iOS, then why is it "still laggy"? Perhaps you actually believe that if Apple touches something, then it is automatically so much better than the rest of the world's offerings, and that other's offerings are so terrible because they are such exact copies of iOS that simply did not receive Apple's blessed touch... in psychology, they call that "magical thinking". So, in conclusion, I would say that one of three conditions exist: either 1) you enjoy saying things that are so obviously dumb, yet inflamatory, just because you think it is fun and that you can get away with it, or 2) you actually believe what you are saying, and believe that Apple is "magical", or 3) you are afflicted with both of the above conditions as both 1) and 2) are true to reality. In the case of the first, you are most definitely a troll. In the case of the second, you are most definitely a hipocrite. In the case of the third, you are most definitely both a troll and a hipocrite, and therefore at least bordering on sociopathy. You can change yourself any time you would like to by accepting some actual rules of reality... either you can believe that Android is a code-for-code copy of iOS and performs similarly in many ways, or you can believe that Android is a piece of garbage and not at all a copy of your beloved iOS... to believe that Android is garbage AND still such a copy of iOS IS TO SAY that iOS is also a piece of garbage. You cannot say that A = B and that B = C without the requirement that A = C also, so either Android and iOS are both garbage and Apple can sue Google for copying their garbage, or iOS is supremely wonderful and Android is something else totally different. If you argue with this, then you are not willing to admit the obvious... that A = C when A = B and B = C. For your own sake, save yourself the trouble... don't argue with fundamental math.

You can copy something and still make a crap product ie android

No, not really. You cannot make a real functional copy of something so 'fantastic' and have it turn out to be such an epic dud, and still let it qualify as a functional copy of the 'fantastic' original. Apparently, your definition of a "copy" is not the one I read in any dictionaries, and thus we are actually having a problem of semantics, and not really an honest debate on anything.

Once again, I must reiterate that you cannot say that A = C is false if you have already said that A = B and B = C are true. Think it over real hard...

a "crap product" that sells 900k units a day. AKA, android sells more in a month than iOS does in 3-6.

Arent you one of those "it must be good because its the highest selling phone" people? oh yes you are.

so by the same token "it must be good because its the highest selling OS by a wide margin" must also apply.

Hep buried you.. u just havent noticed yet because your eyes are so tightly closed to reality.

I don't know if you're aware, but activations aren't sales.

Also selling in volume when you're giving away the product for free is easier.

This does not even matter. Apparently, remix is distracting you away from my pointing out your obvious failure to compile a reasonable idea because he wants to pound Android into your brain a little more... but this argument is totally unecessary when you realize that your foundation does not actually exist. I just hit you with some real logic, and you are IGNORING it. You are the very image of a hipocritical sociopathic troll... you are ignoring even this most simple point of logic in order to kick up a fuss and fight.

Actually you have no point. Having a copy at product doesn't mean it's the same quality. In fact the copy is almost always worse.

Okay, so apparently you are describing a "counterfeit", not a copy. You can claim that Android is a counterfeit of iOS, but we all know that counterfeits are, in fact, worthless. They are also illegal, in the criminal sense. Criminal illegality is not punished by going to civil court to sue the living snot out of people or companies... it is litigated in the state criminal system(s) that apply. So, if Android is a "counterfeit", then Apple should not be suing anybody... instead, they should be going to criminal court, and ask the DOJ to charge these companies with the charge of conspiracy to counterfeit patented products... and then press the ITC for leverage to dissolve Google Inc, Motorola Mobility (now wholly-owned subsidiary of Google as well), Samsung Electronics, HTC, and Sony Electronics in order to prevent them from doing business in the future as convicted counterfeit operators, and all of their management and department heads should be fined and jailed under DOJ regulation and/or INTERPOL standards. Either you call for the whole freakin' tomale... or you admit that you think Android is such a poor product that it cannot truly compete on its own. This civil suit crap has no reason to occur unless it is all just about subterfuge and jealousy over money.

If Android is a copy, then you are calling iOS just as much a piece of garbage as you claim Android to be. If you are claiming that Android is a "counterfeit", then you need to complain to Apple in writing, and ask them to press criminal corporate conspiracy and pirating charges against Google, Samsung, HTC, Huawei, ZTE, Motorola, AND Sony with both the DOJ and INTERPOL if you intend to be honest and follow through with your claims. If you claim that Android IS a copy of iOS, and that it still sucks, then see comment #'s 109, 111, 116, and 118, and pleeeease stop throwing a temper-tantrum like an insecure little school-girl...

Haha you can't even use 'logic' in a proper sentence that actually makes sense sorry


If you claim A = B and B = C are true, then you cannot claim that A = C is false. This is a FACT of logic, and you can ask anyone who has been through algebra, or even debate clubs, about that. I have presented particle physics research on eight ocassions, lectured publicly on the same subject on seven ocassions, started a collaborative physics outreach project once, had a paper published on that topic once, and been cited in someone else's paper once... I didn't go through all of that to NOT understand basic logic. Your basic argument stems from claiming that A = B (Android *B* is *=* a 'copy' of iOS *A*), that B = C (Android *B* is *=* a 'laggy' piece of garbage *C*), and that A is not equal to C (iOS *A* is NOT a 'laggy' piece of garbage *C*)... where 'copy' is defined as "exactly the same in function and/or appearance as the original article", hence justifying Apple's lawsuits against Samsung and others... however this argument is entirely bogus because it is entirely unallowed by foundational math logic which dictates that if A = B and B = C, then A = C must be true.

Either you change your language, and accuse Android of being a "counterfeit" of iOS (does not violate this logic, but requires you to believe that Android is illegal, and thus its producers and distributors punishable in the criminal justice system and not in the civil suit arena), or you deny one of the most fundamental principles of all logic. You get to choose here and now. Enjoy!

Yes, but I had him so good... to the point that mentioning anything pro-Android was a moot point, if not slightly counter-productive. He knows it, I know it, and so does anyone here with less than half of their brain tied behind their back, and who isn't also illiterate at the same time.

My conversation with him in this thread is officially completed, and my work here is done. I can return to my homeworld now... on the planet Zarkon... farewell, earthlings!


btw... +1. If taco comes back, he's all yours!

then someone should tell apple to stop copying android. iOS5 was a bad copy.. but iOS6 takes copying android to a whole new level.

look.. apple just released their new logo.. its a green android holding a rainbow colored apple.. how weird.

No, no, no... 'copy' is the wrong word here. To imply that something is a 'copy' of something that works decently well, and yet is somehow far substandard, is a logical fallacy. The proper term is 'counterfeit'. Just as I told taco, if you think that iOS 6 is a 'counterfeit' of Android, then write to Google and show them, and let them go after Apple in CRIMINAL court... not go civil suit crazy. This cannot work one way in one direction, and not the same way in the other direction... that would be a lack of reflexivity, which is an important rule of logic in cases like these. If you start playing these stupid "you can't say that about mine, but I CAN say that about yours" games, then you will be inviting your opponent (in this case, taco) to call you out and otherwise continue to behave badly here. I'm tired of pointless illogical flame wars from BOTH sides...

Well, you're right in a way, remix, but I don't think we even need to go there. I was saying everything that needed to be said without even bringing up pro-Android arguments... taco's entire foundation of his own argument evaporates into nothing... simply an illusion, and a poor one even at that... when faced by nothing more than first principles. I don't even have to argue FOR Android.

He will claim that we told him not to comment in Android articles first, and then commented in his beloved iPhone-love posts... taco is only doing what every troll ever to come before him ever did... claim that everyone else is just as bad as him, and call all of us trolls, so that he feels more secure in his own rediculousness when we try to let him know that we really are not the trolls... because in his mind, if everyone is a troll, then no one is really a troll at all, not even him. Understand now? I just gave the real answer that he will never admit to because he can't bring himself to admit it without enduring the truth that hurts him so bad inside.

So, first he says Android isn't ready for multi-core CPUs, then he says its been ready since Gingerbread (which was the first version advertised as dual core)?

He needs to worry about getting Intel's phone processors to stop draining a phone dry in a couple of hours.

Android source code is available for everyone, and developers would know if there was no threading.

And Anandtech says its been ready since 2.2...lol.

I dont think any version was ever advertized as dual core ready.
