This cutting edge configuration takes the power of one processor and octuples it! Leaving you with an 8-core an eight-core configuration, providing optimum speed and performance, especially when multitasking.


What is the advantage of Octa-Core over Quad-Core?


Using the same naming convention, Quad-Core (meaning four-core) offers half of what an eight-core can offer, essentially meaning half the power. Of course, the quad-core was released prior, so naturally the Octa-Core is an upgraded improvement on this and offers a superior performance. 

The Octa-Core’s configuration utilises multiple processors, allowing it to pack twice the punch and offer improved handling of high resolution videos, games and navigation applications. By distributing tasks more efficiently between processors, Octa-Core is capable of handling twice the workload, providing a key advantage over Quad-Core.
