Looking at http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=samsung_exynos5_dual&num=1 a 4 core A15 SoC provides sufficient compute power even for more than 80% of all commercial desktop needs. Future will be interesting ...

I nominate the Exynos 5 Octal for best silicon slideware of CES 2013 ;-)

...and wonder if mobile apps can really take advantage of eight cores in any configuration.

Apps won't have access to more than 4 cores at a time.

This is Quad Core SoC, not Eight Core. In Peak performance mode, it will be only Quad A15 running. A7 only kicks in at low power mode to replace shutting down A15. Nvidia Tegra 4 claims to be Quad Core SoC but I am sure there is similar Big-Little arrangement to have 4 Low Power Cores behind.

Just a hogwash. Its Quad core at a time. Rest is just marketing

big.LITTLE supports three operation modes. Cluster migration, CPU migration, and multi processing mode. In multi processing mode, all four A7 cores and four A15 cores are on at any time. SAMSUNG's new exynos chip also supports all of those three modes. Check out the ARM website.

http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4398094/Big-LITTLE-software-is-not-so-hard?pageNumber=1 If OS supports the multi processing mode of big.LITTLE technology, then yes, APP can access all eight cores.

Turns out that Tegra 4 is actually a 5 core chip with 4 "big" cores and a single "little" core.

No, he's right. There are 5 cores, but it's only a "quad core" chip, with a companion core being activated for low-end tasks (while deactivating the other 4). So it's very similar to Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa, although I have serious doubts that the low-clocked A15 is more energy efficient than a quad core A7.

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.
