quote: Am I reading this right that instead of designing their own ARMv8 based cores (similar to how QualComm designs it's own cores, like Krait, on the ARM architecture in the Snapdragon SoCs) they are just using the ARM designed Cortex A57 design (similar to how Samsung uses the existing designs.) If that is the case then I'm extremely disappointed.
