    As I read Anand's flurry of SoC architecture and performance articles tonight on my (old) iPad I load up the page, and then it just sits there for a couple minutes while I read it. Then I scroll down a bit, and again it just sits there waiting for me to finish reading.

    A processor switching to a very low power core during times like that totally makes since. And 4-PLUS-1 sounds like it will make for catchy advertising.

    Is anything different about the Nvidias implementation, or is it just ARMs big.LITTLE with a different name? Reply

    Nope, this is proprietary stuff. big.LITTLE is a much more "elegant" approach, albeit somewhat similar as a "concept". Reply
