Yes, I wouldn't even go as far as to say the omap is weaker, it might be, but that's not really the point I'm making as Stan is pointing out. My argument is at lower processing power levels the a80 is going to literally crush the omap in energy consumption and heat production.Lies and slander. I love change, I'm against bad arguments.I meant WizardStan was against change
Not the same point. Your entire argument, the one and only thing you said, was that the OMAP5 was weaker. After I pointed out the fault in just using that as an argument you effectively re-iterated the same flawed argument. SNESFAN saw the flaw in the argument and made additional points that make the A80 specifically worth waiting for, not just because it is better but because of features it and it alone has.Pretty much the same point, just greatly expanded
I strongly feel its going to be night and day difference. Like the difference between a normal use runtime of double on the same battery. Or setting up governors that will allow for epicly long use cases. A quad a7 android tab with 8 inch screen and 6000mah battery getting 16 hours of heavy use. Epically good, vs trying to squeek out 7 hours by running low intensive tasks. I have a feeling that the numbers that ED finds with the omap are going to be more towards the latter than the former.
One of the first things that the Pandora was known for is its best in class battery life. Almost above all else, that's its strongest feature to me.In a mobile PC there are long spans of time doing insignificant amounts of processing, this will be highly beneficial. To me, our use case and the a80 hardware are made for each other. Software wise might be up for debate.
