Head-To-Head: Samsung Galaxy Note PRO 12.2 vs. Apple iPad Air

App Processor

The LTE version of the Note PRO 12.2 will contain a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad Krait-core system-on-chip running at 2.3GHz. Buyers of the 3G edition will be treated to Samsung's eight-core Exynos 5 SoC, with four ARM A15 cores clocking in at 1.9GHz and four A7 cores at 1.3GHz. The new iPad Air is built around the A7 SoC, Apple's industry-first 64-bit SoC introduced with the iPhone 5S last year. The A7 packs more than a billion transistors onto a 102mm die with two 64-bit ARMv8 application cores at 1.3GHz. Also inside is the M7 dedicated motion processor, which continually measures data coming from the iPad's accelerometer, gyro and compass. Apps can access this data using Apple's new CoreMotion API.
