@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.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
