  1. Earlier this year AMD announced 'Project SkyBridge', a new framework at the company that's aimed at expanding their SoC portfolio to include ARM-based chips. These ARM SoCs would be pin-compatible with the company's next-generation x86 APUs, making it easy for manufacturers to design...

    Meh! Android's use of the multi-core architecture has been a disaster, and it won't change any time soon because most of apps written for it are also crap. This is why Apple's due-core is ahead of Android's 8-core BS phones.

    It would be more interesting to see Linux + Windows on the new ARM-s, to compete with M-core from Intel, if that's even possible.

    Name one iOS app written to take advantage of dual core processors. Unless you can, Apple's dual core story isn't any better than Android.

    Also Intel doesn't have a processor called "M-core".

    iOS apps don't need to use it at all. That's why all the iOS and system-related stuff is running one the second core, while the apps themselves run on the first core. That's fairly proper use of the 2 CPU cores, whereas in the 8-core Android environment the CPU is mostly wasted.

    And ok, Core M - feeling better? :)
