Anandtech reports today that ARM has released Geekbench 3 scores for their A57. It's not looking good. At the same clock speed a single Cyclone core (A7) is still going to be about 25-30% faster. And A57 based SoC's aren't shipping by Qualcomm until the start of 2015, and nobody knows when Samsung will ship theirs. By the time the A8 is out competitors still won't have anything as good a a year+ old A7.
