Yea ... that's what I'm talking about.
Yeah seriously. And to think, Google could have packaged this from the very beginning. Java man. I swear. Some things are good about it, some other things really hamstringing us.
Next year is like 25 years in tech.
MAKE AN APP, lol
Friggin A man..
"Myriad is shopping the technology around to handset manufacturers and OEMs, so it's not something you can install on your phone yourself."
Haha, right. I can't wait.
I don't think so. This Dalvik is a fairly new release. But man, how sweet would it be if we found out that the reason 2.1 was being held up was because they had to work the deal with Myriad on incorporating Dalvik Turbo. I'm drooling just thinking about it.
I have no idea WTF I just watched.
It is a new release, but you can't believe that this tweaking is novel! I don't think cutting edge finds itself in phones all the time. I'm sure someone will get their hands on a version and we'll be able to port it. But until then, it's probably a pipe dream to think it'll be in the 2.1 release. But hey, Motorola can create a huge coup if they package it in their 2.1 release. That'll be one way to tell Google/HTC to suck it!
same! haha could someone explain it?
I know you want it, as we all do. But I don't think it happening any time soon. They have clearly stated that Dalvik Turbo isn't going to be contributed to the Android trunk. They intend to develop relationships with hardware and carrier partners to put Turbo on their phones. This disturbs the crap out of me. I hope there is a change of heart.
This would be incredible on our droids!!! Ahhh I want it NOW NOW NOW!!!! Someone leak it!! PLEASEEEE!!! I'd pay for that!
The video from my first post is a benchmark video comparing two phones ... one with the Dalvik Turbo installed, and a stock Android phone. The different is incredible.
In layman's terms...
There are several ways to increase the overall speed and/or performance of our DROID. Probably the Top 2 on the list would be a better/faster "Kernel", and an optimized "Dalvik Virtual Machine". See the pic below.
The kernel is the code that runs between the hardware and the core of the operating system. We are currently over-clocking the DROID with edited kernels that tell the cpu to run faster. That's the simplest way to get a kernel to improve overall speed, but certainly not the "best" or "safest" way.
The Dalvik engine (or Dalvik Virtual Machine) is the software that basically links the core of the operating system to your applications. Optimize this, and your whole DROID becomes a heck of a lot zippier.
However, it sounds like (at least I've read speculation anyways) this is roughly the same thing at a glance as JIT. So more likely we will see Google's JIT move from alpha to beta someday and then Dalvik turbo would be kinda useless, no?
All I know is that we need to get that and/or JIT stable on our Droid's and ASAP! ... At least let's get JIT stable and on it! We have to be close, right?
Very nice description Joe! I completely understood it! Thanks!!
Dude, you're awesome. GPOAT nominee, for sure.
now it may be bull crap but i read that google is working on something similar if myriad can't hurry it up! so i guess we will see what happens with this
Competition is always good for the consumer.
Google, work on your JIT
Myriad work on this
I don't give a JIT, I want turbo!
(Sorry, couldn't help myself.)
And as soon as one Android phone gets it... The world of Android will get it somehow...
That's because you just watched and didn't read.
Seems it would be incredibly fast simply running linux.
wow looks like its 3 times as fast. AND it conserves battery life?? DO WANT.
