Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y

Samsung's Galaxy Gear television advertisement bears a resemblance to the original iPhone advertisement.

This made me smile, though:

There is just no shame - or original ideas - in this company at all.

Yeah! Except for display technology. Oh, and except for microprocessor design. And, of course, they are a driving force in memory chip design. Well, yeah, except for all those things from which virtually every computer product today benefits - Apple or otherwise - Samsung has absolutely no innovative ideas at all. What have the Romans done for us, indeed.

I don't care about Samsung any more than I care about other companies, but to shove the company's contributions to technology aside just because you lack the capacity to grasp the kind of more bare metal innovation they do just makes you look like an idiot.

LOL. Funny to see fanboys moded my comment to negative value. Yes, Samsung is working on their own CPU core. And they're not finished yet. So far they used off-the-shelf microprocessors for their SoCs. Is it too hard to understand?

And yes, both Apple cores are state-of-art. Even ARM doesn't have a real possibility to design such cores, because ARM customers use different libraries and different manufacturers. Because of that ARM additionally offers POP (http://www.arm.com/products/physical-ip/processor-optimization-pack...)
AMCC X-Gene is interesting to compare A7 to, but so far it is made with obsolete process technology and not available for wide audience.
