Re: Most Surprised
And stupid naming choice by Samsung causes confusion already.
These are Samsung M1 cores, not ARM Cortex-M1 cores. Apparently the Samsung M1 is a full ARMv8-A processor, not an ARMv7-M.
I was puzzled initially why a CPU with an M1 was a big deal, but the 3W power consumption, and clock speed and then instruction set made it clear it was not talking about the Cortex-M1 but rather some other M1. Very annoying naming choice.
I hate Allwinner's chip names too, with calling everything A# where a lot of them end up matching the Cortex-A# models while not being those of course. Of course Apple is doing it too, although at the rate they are counting up, I think ARM will be long past before Apple gets to a given number.
