Take a look at this demonstration.
The 4 buttons control how many CPUs are used to generate the video clips. Currently we have 2 A15 core and 2 A7 Cores. This enables smooth video from all streams.
Turning off one A7 core impedes performance but it doesn’t show a big difference. If we switch off an A15 core as well you can immediately see the quality drop.
When we switch off the second A15 core then we really see the single core struggle. As soon as we switch on all the core we return to running smooth video
