Samsung Exynos 5 Octa: 22 facts and highlights

1. total clock speed

8 x 1.6GHz
MediaTek Helio X30: 10 x 2.8GHz

2. Uses big.LITTLE technology

Using big.LITTLE technology, a chip can switch between two sets of processor cores in order to maximise performance and battery life. For example, when playing a game the more powerful cores will be used to increase performance, whereas checking email will use the less powerful cores to maximise battery life.
