Demystify how Snapdragon processors stack up against the competition (Re: 高通自誇效能 聯發科回嗆)

我拜託台灣有夠了不起的媒體不要移花接木亂報新聞好不好…? 首先,毫無疑問地裝配有 Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 的手機是 Sony Xperia Arc S(確認自機身正面下方的三顆突起按鍵所形成的飾條,及其各別圖示) 而對比機(影片中的 competition phone)則是 Intel’s Medfield-based 的 Orange San Diego(注意正面下方的觸控按鍵圖示和機身側邊的銀白亮條)。 兩支手機的身份都為大家揭曉了,其各別的硬體能力與系統配置,都有公開資訊可以查,這個影片中的評比到底有多少參考價值大家自己可以評斷。 所以我想請教工商時報偉大的記者,這個 Qualcomm 發表的影片,跟聯發科有什麼關聯?還展示在新興市場的實力以反擊高通的嗆聲勒…。不要自編自導得太誇張了,真夠自嗨的。 有在關注的「巷子內」朋友應該早就該從 Qualcomm 的 facebook 上看到這個影片了,還有那兩句嗆聲: We know mobile. Watch how Snapdragon processors stack up against mobile newbies. … Continue reading

MobilePeak 摩波彼克

這家公司不僅在其傳奇總裁母校給出徵才資料,也在台灣知名的 BBS 大站 PTT 上貼出徵求產品測試工程師的文章,一時之間大家的詢問度很高,所以稍微做了點調查。 這邊有些大陸討論區的連結,曾經問過我這家公司怎樣的朋友就自己去看看吧。採信的程度就由各位自行判斷了…(您知道的嘛~ 鄉民大陸台灣皆有之,您是在看門道還是湊到熱鬧,要各憑本事弄清楚來了)。 中国电子顶级开发网 – 有人知道上海摩波彼克怎么样啊 我评IT – 上海摩波彼克半导体有限公司 老杳吧 – 上海MobilePeak(摩波彼克)有人了解吗 我個人看了後的幾點整理: 擺了一尊牛人鄒求真當神主牌,加上某篇細節真實性待考的自傳式人物誌裡的神童故事,在招攬中國人才時相當有用。 承上,加上與 Qualcomm 的密切關係(除了人員背景還有地理位置上),可以看到很多員工都是從 Qualcomm 過來的,比較高層的如 CTO 是台大教授許大山;Co-founder 兼 CSO(策略長)曾任 Qualcomm Sr. VP R&D 再承上,但是人員異動似乎也頗頻繁,有從 Qualcomm 過去後又回鍋 Q 的;有待沒多久就去 Apple 的;也有轉去晨星的… 族繁不及備載。 應該是有一定的技術背景和能力(技術母公司很明顯就是 … Continue reading
