With three name manufacturers scheduled to release phones with it, it’s time to bring it up here.
If the pre-release hype is to be believed, this is a monster of a CPU, that outscores just about everything currently being used. (I say “just about” because we don’t yet know what Apple’s new A9x in the iPad Pro will do.)
MediaTek has clearly left behind Rockchip, Allwinner, and ACTIONS with this CPU. And Intel needs to throw more money around in China if they want their CPUs to stay alive.
If Onda, Teclast, Colorfly, Xiaomi, and others incorporate this CPU into tablets, it’ll frankly make life hell for me. Because I’ll need to see how it performs with Google Books PDFs. I hope Hendrickson over at TECHTablets is seeing this post. Hint, hint.
