    i'd like to know how much more power consuming this is, and am interested in seeing benchmarks with a lot of performance-per-watt comparisons.

    Especially since performance per watt is what this kind of chip is sold on.

    But can it run Crysis?

    Needs to be in a phone. As soon as humanly possible.

    Cortex-A15 at 28nm then would be amazing based off this information.

    Phones probably will be capable of running crisis before the end of this decade the way technology is advancing

    End of the decade?! Assuming what you mean is having the processing and graphical power equivalent to the minimum specs of a PC needed to play the original Crysis at an acceptable frame rate, rather than actually being able to run the x86 code, which is unlikely, or the power to run some cut down version of the engine and look good, which I bet some of today's highest end smart phones and tablets could easily do, looking at the calibre of games such as Infinity Blade on iOS), I'd say we're talking more like 2-3 years from now rather than 7.

    Until smart phones have batteries that actually let you play games without ending up with no battery on my phone (usually stranded somewhere) I'm not interested to be honest. Processing power is nice but pointless if you have to be plugged into the wall to use it
