He came and answered your questions, his company gave away a couple of Samsung Galaxy Note 3s and now ARM's Cortex A53 lead architect, Peter Greenhalgh, is joining me for a live video interview (via Google Hangouts) tomorrow at noon ET.

Update: We are starting now. You can ask questions on Google+ or just watch the stream on G+ or YouTube. And we're done. Check out the full interview below.

    Thanks for the link but I stillI won't be using it.

    I understand that people can just rip the audio out, but it takes away views which is money and proof that people want to watch/listen to these which will make it harder to get sponsors.

    Unless Anand personally comments/says is okay to get a download through other means, I'll be sticking to YouTube :(

    Yes, it would be nice if you guys provided a Podcast feed to this video / audio. I've stated this before and maybe because you guys were eager to post this video ASAP but it would be VERY much appreciated if you could take the time (maybe even invest in a Mac Pro or near-equivalent PC) to output and invest (if you haven't already done so) in some good podcast producing software (i.e. Final Cut + Compressor or adobe Audition) so you can spit out a quality video / audio Podcasts to the various podcast feeds for shows just like this.

    With the power now-a-days, in these desktop computers... even doing HD quality video, shouldn't take long at all even for a long-format talk / interview.

    Oh btw.... looking forward to another great AnandTech Mobile Show on my podcast client! :D

    Also, I wanted to mention that I really found this interview VERY interesting... especially considering it was from someone so high-up in the management chain at ARM (and an ARM Fellow at that). And I also loved the question you asked Anand about if Peter was to design his ideal High-End Phone mobile SOC what would it be? It was extremely interesting to see him explain the rationale behind what he would choose based on his ideal mix of performance / battery / thermal capabilities.

    Also, I got to add... him dropping out at the end was CLASSIC. lol Which btw, is a perfect reason to take the minimal amount of time to produce a video podcast so those type of things don't end up happening. But overall, great interview.

    Anand seems hesitant to ask questions that might touch on "trade secrets" aspects but should NOT be so as the respondent would be sharp enough to catch it and respond in a way that will not violate the IP aspects much. The issue here for the listeners is to understand the detailed aspects of design rationale by the designer and Peter gave those info well. Effectively, the A53 is based off most of the A7 so it is really an evolution design with optimizations to parts of the architecture.It is the refinements over time that would be very interesting as partners implement various refinements to suit their purposes.eg L3 cache called WriteBack buffer. See why Apple A7 seemed to have 4MB of this L3 ?.

    You forgot to ask if there will be an A55 and what was the point of A12.

    Great questions, great video, this is why I love anandtech!

    What camera or webcam were you using for this Hangout, Anand? The picture is very clear at your end.
  • B3an - Friday, December 27, 2013 - link

    I'd also like to know this.

    BTW Anand it's great that you got an interview with someone like this, it's pretty rare.

    This is just the best and most insightful videos on the subject that I have seen. Seriously, very well done and a big thank you to Anand and Peter.

    On a personal note, I had been wondering about the LITTLE.big core counts. What a joy to have Peter clear up that point and also agree with what I had been thinking - excellent bit of telepathy on his part.
