@eemikee You are quite correct and thanks for pointing it out. ST-Ericsson references to Quad are to a virtual quad-core based on a physical dual-core. I have amended the copy to reflect this.

According to STE's press release the processor is actually dual-core running in either high performance or power save mode: "This is achieved by transistor-level electrical bias switching to allow each of two physical cores to run in two different modes, creating an electrically-enabled quad core." Quoted from http://www.stericsson.com/press_releases/L8580_eQuad.jsp the section Notes to Editors, eQuad.

It's not a quad core, but a dual core. Read the NOTES TO EDITORS under the press release.

After STMicroelectronics decision to exit the JV, many speculations have been spread lately in the net about the company.

@lola159 Who is your source? If that happens it would be shame but probably the FDSOI technology would find another home.

I heard that ST-Ericsson is planning to shut-down in 6 months (after St Microelectronics leaving) after selling some of its existing products, is that true??

Performance should always compared at a specific leakage or Power spec for a given silicon area & cost.

@eewiz compared to existing high performance processors it is not the best, rather fall in average performance category. But mastering processor's "Power" is I think the best and right step forward.

Wait to see the stories of 1) STE beat Qualcomm and Nvidia in the near future. 2) STM+GF(FDSOI camp) beat SAMSUNG+GF+UMC(IBM camp) and TSMC in Bulk CMOS and FINFET. Look foreward to seeing more evidence soon.

Well done STE! The key achievement here is the ability to operate with a so wide voltage range (0.6V to more than 1.1V I guess). Also, low voltage operation is the key for low power (CV^2). This is made possible by FD-SOI technology. I would like to see performance (and power) figures at lower than 0.6V, which is not achievable in bulk CMOS.
