Dual-core ARM Cortex-A15 faster than Intel Atom and quad-core Cortex-A9

by: Gary SimsDecember 3, 2012
When Apple released the iPhone 5 it didn't contain a quad-core CPU as many people had expected, however Apple did claim that the new phone was up to twice as fast as its predecessor. The most likely reason that Apple could make such a claim is that its A6 CPU uses the Cortex-A15 architecture. With the recent release of Google's new Chromebook, which is powered by Samsung's Cortex-A15 based Exynos 5 Dual (Exynos 5250), the benchmarking gurus have now had a chance to really test the new architecture from ARM and the results are amazing.
