ARM Processor of Choice: Dual A15 or Quad A9

Posted Apr 26, 2012 at 12:41 pm in Threads > Opinions

With the advent of Tegra 3 and the new Exynos quad core chip from Samsung (rumored GSIII chip) of the quad core variety and the new architecture dual core Snapdragon S4, this is becoming a difficult choice.

Samsung and nVidia go with the older architecture, but double the main cores but Qualcomm goes with the new, more powerful and efficient architecture and half the cores. It also happens to be the only (as of now) chip confirmed to be LTE compatible…and therefore the only US option for Verizon/Sprint, likely AT&T.

Better to hold out for T3+ with LTE or go for the equally powerful S4?
