A couple of legit questions
Guys, just 4 years ago was when the first mainstream quad-cores made it to market. Back then 2.3 ghz meant a hefty cooling fan.
Nowadays they're in a phone (I understand the exaggeration but bear with me).
So have we got successful parallelism that so plagued early x86 code to make the most of the extra cores?
Is parallelism handled differently on ARM and is easier to leverage?
At the end of the day I recall from the x86 camp that twice the cores!=twice the power. How is it on ARM and Android?
(Funnily enough the phone's specs albeit with a little more RAM has been the "good - enough" setup that slowed pc sales down the last 5 years).
