Hexa A53? That’s two clusters. I thought only MediaTek did those things.

It would help if Samsung explained why the 2 core – 6 core choice for the SoC.
How they can be configured and used, can the 6 cores of A53 be reduced to conserve power? Are 6 core, 4 core 2 core ,1 core use allowed, to conserve battery power?

Down to 1 core operation was used by Nvidia successfully, in their Tegra 4, A15, tablet SoC, to extended battery life.
