ARM's Cortex-A78 and Cortex-X1 will power the Androids of 2021

26 May 2020
Cortex-A78 brings a 20% performance boost or 50% higher efficiency, while the X1 is a super powerful core to rival the Apple A-series CPUs.

Anonymous, 27 May 2020And that link is only one scenario and still doesn't match ... moreThanks for answering, but that's one *controlled* scenario that is more valuable than those which are not, like some random "real-life" gaming comparisons on YouTube, for instance. And speaking of real-life comparison, many gaming-specific Android phones come with lower resolution FHD display with higher refresh rate panel which naturally boosts on-screen fps and pushes it beyond 60fps. I will chuck it out of our way because I'm solely talking about the raw GPU performance of each SoC.

LilPhone, 27 May 2020Some guy who simply cannot accept the bitter reality but alright.I guess that does sum you up well. Weird to speak in the third like that but ok.

Android Master, 27 May 2020Oh that has been the case since the iPhone 4 was pitted aga... moreI see. And especially back then the iPhone pretty much had nothing in its favor. Except brand loyalty and I guess length of support. But the support thing probably wasn't known or fully known at the time of the review. So that's pretty bias.
And the things those galaxies and other droids were capable of already not to mention with some of the amazing custom roms of the time just left that iphone 4 in another world behind.

Nick Tagataka, 27 May 2020I did put up a link to Anandtech and specifically told you ... moreAnd that link is only one scenario and still doesn't match up to real world results.
Go use a gramophone phone side by side or look up many comparisons.
Again. If you can't understand something so simple i can't help you.

Anonymous, 27 May 2020I'm not the jack a whisperer. If you can't understand that ... moreI did put up a link to Anandtech and specifically told you which part of the page you're supposed to read. As I already said, scroll down a bit until you reach the section on GFXBench offscreen graphics performance, and there you will see tables that show performance and power consumption from GPUs on each SoC. "A13 Cold" indicates the peak performance when iPhone is still running cold, whereas "A13 Warm" is for when the phone is warm and GPU is in a throttled state due to prolonged heavy workload (hence lower fps). You can then go ahead and see the performance and power consumption figures of A13 and SD865 side by side.
What I'm saying is if you actually think my understanding on this is wrong then point it out instead of namecalling me. You don't want to do that? Then that's fine, I'll simply stick with my own logic and this discussion is done.

If you can't understand that you making something up in your head that is not supported by links or device results is delusional and bias then it is beyond my capability to help you.

Anonymous, 27 May 2020You say that... Meanwhile that's exactly what you are doing.Then as I said, can you explain to me why you think that's what I'm doing? Since you sound like you know so much more about this than I do, it would be helpful if I can hear your thoughts on this :)

Anonymous, 27 May 2020They are not Apple bias. At least not from the the reviews ... moreOh that has been the case since the iPhone 4 was pitted against the Samsung galaxy S/Note series days.
Every year, in their reviews, the iPhones shortcomings were covered up while Samsung was scrutinized over useless things that it lacked and it's innovative features downplayed.

No wonder it's owner Anandlal went on to work for Apple.

Anonymous, 27 May 2020Like you have any room to talk with your bias made up claims. I wouldn't claim anything if I didn't have any proof to back it up.

However nothing in their reviews supports their claim that a throttled a13 will still run stronger. And gaming phones for one prove otherwise.

Nick Tagataka, 27 May 2020Ironically enough, throttled A13 is still significantly fas... moreSD865 can barely match the graphic performance of A12 from 2018? What are you smoking pal?

Interesting designs, Not Imagine a processor by Qualcomm, with a Dual Core Modified X1, Dual Cores of A78 and Rest A55s.
And an Adreno GPU to Match.
Apple is gonna be SO VERY Much in trouble in 2021.
This will be One hell of a Combination, I just hope we get Radeon graphics on Exynos chips... AND that'd make my 2021. I will be due for Upgrade anyways next year.
