The Samsung Exynos has nudged ahead of Qualcomm's Snapdragon, according to initial tests of the latest SoCs with a new Android benchmark released today.
Interesting to know that Samsung Exynos has nudged ahead of Qualcomm's Snapdragon. I am curious to know if these are the final numbers or initial numbers because it is mentioned as initial tests in the article ?
Based on the screenshot, "device score" looks like an overall score that actually includes 3D, and if it is to be of any use, this overall score should be taken by itself. Therefore, the older (?) snapdragon is better than the exynos, which is better than the newer snapdragon.
This basically means that either qualcomm are incapable of improving upon themselves, or that this benchmark's overall score is useless: I'm betting on the overall score being useless. better look each individual test score and get an idea of what type of computation each of these devices is better at than rely on an unproven overall score
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
