Intel claims that the system-on-chip (SoC) vendor have not made enough effort in optimizing Android for multi-core processors. The problem, though had a lot of core, will be useless if there is no software to utilize it optimally.
The Inquirer reported on Tuesday (6/12/2012), according to General Manager of Intel Mobile and Communications Group, Mike Bell, the thread scheduler in Android is not ready for multi-core processors. “If you are not in a place that does not limit the power, multiple-core makes sense because it can fully run demanding applications,” he said.
While Mashable site says, the most frequent criticisms thrown at Android on multi-core processor is the question: why do you need so much processing power in a smartphone?
Thread scheduler on Android is not just a duty to bring the best performance from a quad-core that exist now. Especially because the component makers was the only one who could generate the greatest performance of a processor.
Intel argues, the company behind this processor should contribute to the improvement of vital Android source tree, but they do not do that. in The Android processor market, Intel itself is a new player is issued a single-core Atom processor Medfield.Advertisement
