Phoronix: ARM Cortex-A15 Quad-Core Linux ODROID-XU Tests

Written by: Alex Zaharov-ReuttWith models of the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy SIII sporting dual-core chips with 4G/LTE in the US, but quad-core chips for their 3G models, some are wondering whether Apple’s iPhone 5 will be similarly “core-tailed”, or whether an Apple A6 processor can mix and match quad core with the 4G pedal to the metal – while retaining more than sufficient battery life.
