12 Reasons why Samsung Exynos 5 Octa 5420 is better
than the average
1.Reasonably faster CPU clock speed
8 x 1.8GHz
vs 4.7 x 2.3GHz (the average)
vs 8 x 8GHz (best: AMD Opteron 6220)
2.Uses big.LITTLE technology
vs No (95% don't have it)
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.
vs No (97% don't have it)
Heterogeneous Multi-Processing (HMP) is a more advanced version of big.LITTLE technology. In this setup, a processor can utilise all cores at the same time, or just a single core for low-intensity tasks. This can provide powerful performance or increased battery life respectively.
