A510s are not power saving anyway. They are worse than A55.

The Cortex A710 is the only Armv9 Cortex A CPU that has (limited) 32 bit support, the A510 only supports aarch64. And no, adding more Cortex X CPUs isn't going to make the SoC more efficient, you don't need a PhD to figure out that much.

      Will the phone require a bigger fan than the gen1?

        Will it be power hungry?

          I still fail to understand the logic of having the A710s. The A715s could easily provide more efficiency and performance. If its for the 32 bit support, i think the A510s could easily handle that.

          I would think if they wanted a power boost but wanted maintained a more efficient & cooler SoC, it would have made more sense to go with 2 x Cortex X3 (clocked same as X2s or little lower), 3 x A715s (clocked the same as A710s) , 3x510s (clocked at max). Adding to that, if they have optioned for TSMC updated 4P node manufacturing, they could easily expect a performance jump of about 15% in performance, a 20% in battery life, and about 15% reduction with the thermals. I guess now its a matter of wait and see.

Or if you make a call then the game that you're playing hangs because there's only 1 processor and that processor is now playing your ringtone and displaying the UI and has no slack for everything else. Or, you can't receive your calls and messages because you're doing something processor intensive and there is no processor slack to receive or process any calls/messages.

                Snapdragon peaked with 865, 865+, and 870. Since then, it goes downhill. If only Mediatek can give a better source code support for a better software life cycle.

                  Ry, 30 Sep 2022Lol.. How. True , because no one else uses 2 highend cores.

                  Everything else uses 1 highend cpu

                      An application can run more efficiently with multiple threads but ONLY if:
                      the CPU and OS supports it,
                      the threads are short and processed faster than typical long single threaded applications (aka MS Office suite of apps have been single threaded for decades until 64-bit OS').

                          What was that? how chip can be ported to a node only? And will it work without branches and loops? Do you have single ideas regarding circuit design? As I said before, you have no work because you have zero study.

                            will it require throttling? and if so, less or more than current gen 1 I wonder?
