    So 80% faster than an A57 on 20nm.

    That seems pretty decent, why do they have to do all the "50x something so old no-one cares about it" nonsense?

    It's slightly odd as over a period of 7 years, Moores law say that should be approximately 12x faster, where did the other 4 years of advancement come from?

    Well, the A57 came out almost 2 years ago, so by now the replacement should be 100% faster......so they are going back further to make it appear better then it is (and should be)!

    Marketing, got to love it.

    Re: ARM promises 50x CPU improvement from 2009-2016

    ARM cpus could be a great successor to RISC and PowerPC for the consumer market, I can't wait to see where this will lead us.
    I wonder if apple will start making it's own ARM cpus for their computers once they are capably for desktop use. I remember how superior used to be a RISC/PowerPC cpu back in the days, before they hit the wall of energy/heat problems.

    It can benefit even the windows side, since intel so far doesn't have any serious competition from AMD and they barely make 5-10% improvements in every generation. If there is a RISC rival they will push x86 harder.
