While Intel started out slowly in the Android world, powering only entry-level devices during 2012, we suspected that one of these days the world’s largest semiconductor chip maker will be looking to step things up.
Dual-core ARM Cortex-A15 faster than Intel Atom and quad-core Cortex-A9
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.
AnTuTu Benchmark 3.0.1 available, packs a slick new interface

Samsung Galaxy S2 Plus spotted in AnTuTu benchmark, to come with dual-core CPU
It’s definitely not safe to put all your eggs in one basket in today’s tech world, but Samsung’s basket count is getting a bit out of hand. We know that Sammy’s increasing Android popularity is due to the fact that the company has devices for all tastes, needs and budgets, but the already thin lines between low-end, mid-range and high-end are just about becoming invisible.
HTC One X+ has been spotted in AnTuTu benchmark… or has it?
Has the hype around the Optimus G been artificially built or does LG really have something special to challenge the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2 or HTC One X? While it’s a bit early to fully answer that question, some early benchmark results show the G as very capable of taking on pretty much anyone in terms of raw speed, mostly due to the featuring of a Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU.
