the source of the report quoted here ( but not referenced ! ) is AnandTech, which is located in the Valley and is technically superb / reliable.

Not always. Their remarks about Haswell being suited for tablets have been way off the mark, and they didn't even realize those 10W would be FAR weaker chips than what we have in ultrabooks today. I'm thinking sub-1 Ghz chips here - that still cost like $200+, which is as much as the entire BOM for the iPad.

Ask yourself - why would Samsung put a iPhone 4s level GPU into a design that is supposed to beat iPad4

Because Samsung is a competitor and they don't give a **** about iPhone! Like millions of people do! It is hundreds times proven that Galaxy is better that Apple phone! backpacker travel insurance

With a PowerVR SGX 544MP3 GPU the Exynos 5 Octa is a step up from Apple's ... There have been rumours doing the rounds suggesting that Sony is calling http://uk1insurance.com

ZomZom, whats with the stupid link to insurance sales ? The rumoured powerVr core, although not having the same theoritical Gflops performance for compute applications, will have a better fill rate and similar graphical performance otherwise, as the ipad4. If the rumour is true, then it would appear that Arm did not have a graphics solution available that could compete with this. Even their much shouted about T604 is only getting approx 2/3 graphics performance of the ipad4 chip. http://www.glbenchmark.com/compare.jsp?benchmark=glpro25&showhide=true&data-source=1&D1=Google%20Nexus%2010&D2=Apple%20iPad%204

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
