2011 saw the emergence of dual core cell phones with the iPhone 4S and the Samsung Galaxy SIIbeing two of the most powerful and popular at the time. In, 2012 we saw even more advanced phones and tablets with even more powerful dual and quad processors. 2013 saw the emergence of Samsung’s first octa core processor. These superpower devices include new features and advantages over single-core rivals, not just in terms of speed increase. So what exactly does multi core processing (cores) mean to you?
Popular devices like the iPhone 4 and HTC Desire HD use single-core 1 GHz processors. They remain incredibly powerful devices, but the dual core phones make them look old.
As a head with two brains working together, a dual-core processor, such as the famous Galaxy SII’s Snapdragon, can do more things at once, releasing more power, speeding up performance, and running applications and tasks that were impossible on more devices slow. A quad core processor is a head with four brains. They will be twice as powerful as dual core processors and will be able to run applications and features that will reinvent the market.
High Performance Games
One of the most obvious advantages of a multi-core phone’s power is in gaming. Extra gain on processors means that cell phones can give more polygons and textures more complicated and complex to gaming the device, producing higher rates. Advanced graphics techniques, such as anti-aliasing (technology that cuts the edges of 3D game graphics) are also beginning to be used. We’ve already begun to see games that do not look so different from today’s home consoles. The trend is also to merge the mobile device processor with dedicated graphics processors for even greater performance.
It’s not just graphics that benefit from the raw power of dual core or quad core: game physics and artificial intelligence have been taken to the next level. These elements of the game put masses of pressure on the processor of the system, and this has limited games to more intelligent phones, until now.
The result? Cars that deal more realistically with the scenario, enemies with better brains and objects that move and react to the world more realistically. It will take developers a bit of time to catch up with the next generation of technology in multi-core devices, but once they do, the results will give even more mouth-watering.
1080p Full HD Video
Multi-core processors enable 1080p video resolution, both in terms of playing back movies and capturing from a camera on the device. The multi-core devices are capable of pumping video to the maximum resolution of the main TVs.
Mobile phone manufacturers are becoming more specialized in video, too, the introduction of features like HDMI outputs and DLNA streaming wireless media as standard, allow you to watch the video of your handset in your TV room with ease. Pack your phone full of movies and TV episodes and it will work as the most versatile and portable media center in the home that you could have. Dual core phones with high-end cameras can also record video at 1080p. You are now able to film your own epic summer vacation with Blu-ray resolution.
The dual-core architecture of a dual core CPU is perfectly suited for multitasking, which is already available on all major smartphone platforms. With a single core processor, tasks in different applications are processed in a single file, but at a speed fast enough to give the impression that they are happening at the same time. With a dual core configuration, real multitasking is possible.
In real terms this means you’ll be able to run more applications at the same time without seeing any performance declines, something that was common in Android phones released before mid-2011. You’ll be able to keep a game running in seconds plan while editing photos and jumping to a Facebook application to post photos online, all at high speed.
Once manufacturers of platforms like Apple and Google become familiar with multi-core mobile devices, let’s begin to see even more dynamic use of these processors as well.
Larger and better applications
Demanding applications can also be developed to make use of dual core and quad core processors through multi-threading. This is like multitasking, but within a single application: multiple processes occurring simultaneously.
It will allow high-end applications to use the last drop of energy from a dual core chip, and make videos and photos thirsty power more impressive with top-line editing applications. This is all in the hands of application developers, but with thousands of them out there having done hundreds of thousands of mobile apps and games only in recent years, it will not be long before we see a seriously awesome app editing your 1080p movies with.
Longer battery life
One of the less exciting sounding benefits of a multi-core system may turn out to be the most useful: battery life. This may seem counterintuitive, but with two cores in the heart of a cell phone, when the extra power of the second core is not needed, it can effectively be put to sleep.
So if this extra burst of energy is needed because an app or intense game, that second core can get into the ring at any time. With two cores to tap, each core does not need to be as powerful as its single core counterpart, so more effort can be put into minimizing the amount of energy that is sucked out. Samsung’s Octa core even has a group of 4 cores with less power for more basic tasks. When you need more power – when jumping to YouTube or capturing HD video, the other larger cores leap into the story. The system always uses the minimum of processing power, saving energy.
Remember that mainly for Android devices, the OS installed also influences a lot. This is because many of the themes used by the manufacturers are very heavy and, among us, useless. Just see the LG Nexus, which has the latest Android and “chokes” much less than a Galaxy S4, for example, even the second being much more powerful.
Our tip to optimize the use of your processor is for you to root your system and install a clean Android . For other OSs, it’s worth keeping an updated system to optimize your device.
