Heterogeneous Cores Turn Off Transistors To Save Power
The combination of architectural techniques such as heterogeneous multicore and new advances in transistor design should enable a continual increase in processor performance and capabilities for at least the next decade.
Core Counts Keep Climbing
Processors add more cores to maintain pace with communications networking speeds.
Processor Vendors Target Small Basestations 1
Processor vendors compete as 4G the cellular roll out requires more smaller basestations.
Mobile Multicores Multiply At 2011 MWC
Dual-core processors are becoming the main computing power in many new smartphones with attendant benefits.
Wireless Modems Go Soft In The Move To 4G

To make the transition from 3G to 4G technologies, wireless baseband vendors face a huge increase in processing requirements, due to both the greater complexity of the underlying orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) algorithms and the increase in data rates. At the same time, ongoing changes in 4G protocols such as WiMAX and Long-Term Evolution (LTE) create a need for flexibility.
