Qualcomm: The vast majority of users do not notice the benefits of quad-core processors
Quad-Core Processors? Mobile devices? Perhaps more interesting for users concerned about the speed, but according to Qualcomm, the vast majority can not tell the difference in performance between two and four cores.
That majority reaches, say in the company to 95%. Sy Choudhury says that today’s reality is that the use of two cores is enough for common users, and that only “power users” of smartphones and tablets to really take advantage of quad-core processors. This is radically opposed to what happens when processor jumps from one to two cores, where users do notice a significant difference in the performance of their devices.
Similarly, in qualcomm are not yet convinced that it’s time to quad-core processors, and so far two are more than enough. Choudhury believes that developers should first learn how to optimize code and get real advantage of the current CPU, or if not to launch quad-core computers will be a waste.
