Reviewers say Samsung's Galaxy S6 tops Android heap, but S6 Edge is solution in search of problem
Reviewers say Samsung's Galaxy S6 tops Android heap, but S6 Edge is solution in search of problem: "Performance from Samsung's octo-core Exynos 7420 was found to be 'wicked,' easily besting the multi-core benchmark scores of its competitors, though Apple's A8 did gain a slight advantage in single-core benchmarks. Segan believes this to be a bigger problem for Qualcomm than anyone else, as the company's Snapdragon 810 only 'looks like a good choice as long as Qualcomm doesn't have any real high-end competition.'"
Wicked is an interesting choice of words here. I remember visiting Microsoft in the early 90s and seeing the NCR 8-core machines that were running pre-release versions of Windows NT. They were the size of a standard refrigerator.
