ARM's new GPU for Superphones to support DirectX 11 and able to deliver desktop like performance.
8 core GPU ? I wonder what those smartphones need that much graphics crunching for..
it will be able to play high end pc games with ease or maybe such games should be made to be played on such devices
High end PC games? Lol, no. You'll never see Battlefield 3 visuals on a smartphone.
no thanks, the current smartphones and tablets are crazy expensive, this will double or triple the cost.
Im more worried about battery life!
oh yes, that too. bubs for you mate
Agreed, my dual core S2 lasts around 2-3 hours if im lucky after a full charge if i play any games.
No optimisation for multiple cores it would seem.
ARM is know for their ability to create architectures that consumers less power than others. Maybe that will be the case here too!
crazy... i'd sooo get one... since here its free :P
how come its free...
you only pay for credit.... and get any phone free..
@Piros - That's not really free. You get charged for the device through the credit payments. Just a nice way of marketing it.
8 core GPU? Do you mean 8 core CPU?
I would rather see massive strides in battery technology. For the most part, current higher-end smart phones are powerful enough and the software runs pretty efficiently on it. Unless we make some massive strides in mobile phone software.
Agreed, I can't see anything coming out anytime soon that will make my S2 have a heart attack when running.
Battery on the other hand, would be nice to not need a recharge if I game on it in excess of 2 hours.
I hope that 8 core based smartphone can able to prolong it's battery life for up to 48 hours stand by time. And 12 hours for gaming. Hopefully And lastly, with HDMI
And what about battery life? smh
The battery life with these CPU's would be pretty much non-existent. Battery tech just isn't keeping up. Also the graphics capabilities wouldn't be able to match high-end gaming PC's. Although, tech does move on and future phones will make use of this tech. Its just a matter of when.
I would like to see the 2x gpu cards come down in price but i can dream.
I really dont get why we need so much power on a mobile phone. Yes its a smart phone but come on who wants to play pc games on a mobile device. To me its just letting the developers to become lazy again. The PC market has taken a hit in gaming because of this and when all said and done a phone with a 1ghz processor 512mb ram in it is as much as it should ever need. Tablets I can understand when windows is out on them as I think tablets are going to become the new laptop but not a mobile phone.
I think they should work on battery life before adding more power. I have a samsung Galaxy mini and I barely get 24 hours standby out of it.
damn really, i got the galaxy s2 and that thing powers for about 2 days for me, that includes all the surfing and apps and such. i dont play many games on it because im at work from 5 am to about 5pm.
Yup. If I use the phone it drains the battery fairly fast and I always leave the phone go completely dead before charging it.
why are they focusing on GPUs in smart phones. Most people care about battery life and speed of the apps loading. So more RAM and better CPUs and battery please
Yeah their are some powerful mobile gpu's out there such as these two below...

Cheers Technology Enthusiasts!
This is so useless.. Really.. I have a Nexus S with 1GHZ single core processor and it's really fast.. I don't see a reason to get a dual-core or a quad-core device especially when the battery is that lame.. My brother's Galaxy S2 reaches 20% after 9 hours of use
Stop talking about bad battery life. Northwestern Uni in america has developed a novel electrode for lithium ion batteries which charges 10x faster and holds its charge up to 10x longer than existing technologies.
With necessity comes progress. With LTE and 8 core devices on the way, we will soon see much bigger, and faster charging batteries!
