Intel x3 Sofia platform with ARM Mali400/450/720 GPU

Posted by – April 7, 2015

After spending Billions of dollars in the past year to buy market share in the tablet market, Intel’s mobile division reported an operating loss of $4.21 billion for 2014, Intel subsidized Shenzhen tablet design houses and factories, they probably want to stop that very expensive subsidy by trying to convince the design houses and factories to use Intel's next generation x86 platform which Intel may claim to not be requiring subsidies to buy market share anymore. Previously code-named Sofia, Intel's x3 platform is a two chip 3G solution using ARM Mali-400MP4 GPU in the Intel x3 C3130 dual-core, ARM Mali-450MP4 GPU in the quad-core Intel x3-C3230RK (marketed/designed with Rockchip) and 4G LTE with the ARM Mali-760MP2 GPU in the quad-core Intel x3 C3440. Will Intel manage to price their next generation x86 at MediaTek-like levels and will they really be able to keep design houses and factories interested if they stop subsidizing them, if they stop dumping the price and giving away their CPUs for free, giving factories PCB designs for free (reference design based), PCB and tablet productions subsidized, marketing subsidized, software development subsidized and etc? What is Intel's real potential market share in tablets and smartphones when they stop this subsidy? And why doesn't Intel just make more ARM devices in and out of their Fab like they did the Intel/Rockchip XMM6321 dual-core ARM Cortex-A5 that I filmed here: http://armdevices.net/?s=XMM6321

Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet

Posted by – March 6, 2015

Runs Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core 64bit ARM Cortex-A57/53 with the Adreno 430 GPU, with LTE support on a 10.1” 2K display, 3GB RAM, it's thinner and lighter than Sony has ever done a tablet, packs a 6000 mAh battery for up to 17 hours of Video playback. It also has a nice bluetooth Keyboard Dock option that fits well with it and folds into a laptop mode. I just wish Sony would sell it closer to sub-$300 with LTE and the Keyboard Dock than at probably $600+.

Posted by – March 4, 2015

MediaTek shows the world's first ARM Cortex-A72 processor, in a big.LITTLE formation with dual ARM Cortex-A72 and dual ARM Cortex-A53 on a 28nm process design with the SGX6250 GPU, this processor is real, it is implemented in a tablet here showing working Lollipop Android 5.0 running on their tablet reference! MediaTek provides it to their partners to start working on the integration and for their partners hopefully to soon be able to release ARM Cortex-A72 based MT8173 based tablets! I hope they are also preparing Chrome OS for this amazingly powerful ARM Processor!

ARM Cortex-A72

Posted by – March 3, 2015

ARM Cortex-A72 is ARM’s highest-performance and most advanced processor. Based on the ARMv8-A 64bit Architecture, the Cortex-A72 CPU builds on the wide success of the Cortex-A57 processor across mobile and enterprise markets, ARM has done a number of micro-architectural changes and made some engineering improvements in the design, to deliver three and a half times the performance of ARM Cortex-A15 based devices in the smartphone power budget, as well as significant reductions in overall power consumption also optimizing the design for upcoming 16nm FinFET and smaller process technology.
