Just discovered this. Is neon also running on my Galaxy Note?

Great work!

That's good :) In 1.52 I optimized Surround effect as well. On Galaxy S it gave almost 4 times speedup! (400%) on Galaxy S2 around 40% but also good. Probably Galaxy S2 has faster VFP unit (floating point co-processor) than S1, so Samsung is progressing in chip design. But on top of everyone is VFP by Nvidia on Tegra2. Neutron consumes there max 6-7% on dual-core 1 Ghz CPU!

Hi guys, first time here. I`ve been using this player for a couple of days now and am positively impressed, even though there is room for improvement. I`ve purchased the piece to support the developer and maybe to be able to help in eliminating the gaps that hinder some productivity.

Question is: I've downloaded the player a couple of days ago on the Google Play and it self updated yesterday. Does it already incorporate this faster version mentioned on this thread? My understanding is that I`d have to download an APK and manually install - is that correct?

I own a Galaxy S2 and the purchase was done two days ago.

Cheers, Ed

Hi Ed!

If you update from the Play Store then you need to update to NEON version from Neutron web-site again. Or you can disable auto-update in Play Store app for Neutron and update it manually when notification comes.

Best regards,
Dmitry.

Hi,

I'm new to this forum and to Android, but I should be getting a new Nexus 10 tablet delivered today. Reading about this NEON version of Neutron makes me wonder if it would work with the Nexus 10. Does that have a NEON capable chip?

Thanks, and I look forward to trying out the Neutron player.

Hi Nirmala, All new powerful ARMv7 devices have NEON SIMD in CPU. NEON is absent in NVIDIA Tegra 2 CPUs but it is obsolete already.

> How I can install Neon version?

Actually NEON SIMD must be supported by CPU of your device but it seems NEON part is disabled in it, or there are some bugs in the firmware which prevent Neutron startup. Generally it must work on Galaxy Note 2.

> difference between samsung and google version of neon

Different stores: e.g. if you purchased on Google Play then Google Play version is for you, Samsung - is for Samsung Apps users.

Hello !
sorry for my poor english... I would congratulate this good player and so, his owner !!!

for the néon version, how can we be sure that our equipment is capable to use this version ?

I have no smartphone just this Pmp : Samsung galaxy Wi-Fi 5


When I run the Neon settings ("Audio hardware"), at the CPU line, its notified : ARMv7+NEON

thanks

Hello :)

If CPU field is showing ARMv7+NEON then NEON is supported and if VEC is showing NEON then it is NEON optimized version of Neutron.

Normally majority ARMv7 CPUs are with NEON unit. There famous non-NEON cpus are NVIDIA Tegra2.

Best regards,
Dmitry.
