All I can say is that my GS3 has absolutely no lag at all, while I have heard people complain about some minor lag on the One X and One S (both of which are using Krait).
I never said krait was. I said a15 has better performance 40% more than a9. Krait is comparable to a15 arm cortex hybrid. I never said the galaxy s3 lags did I?HTC has been known to make any phone lag with their software. You can't compare phones with different software for processor optimization.
Pipeline Depth 10 stages 11 stages
Decode 2-wide 3-wide
Issue Width 3-wide? 4-wide
Execution Ports 3 7
L2 Cache (dual-core) 512KB 1MB
Core Configurations 1, 2 1, 2, 4
arm cortex has A15 has 15 stages pipeline and 8-wide port, comparing to 11 stages and 7-wide on krait.
A15 is clearly still better than it but krait is highly more power efficient than a15 and more powerful than a9 architecture regardless. The gpu in the exynos is more powerful. What benchmarks 720p gpu off screen test or whole bunch of benchmarks that don't matter? In real world performance. No one saying exynos quad core is bad is still old architecture end of story.There is even a thread discussing this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1635401
