The older tegra had 4+1 but regardless my point was undocked has a lower power operation mode say it turns off 2 of 6 cores and limits the clock speed to 80% better battery life lower performance docked full power available.The latest PX2 doesn't use 5 cores, it used 6:
2 Denver v2 corers
4 A57 cores.
Nvidia Parker SoC features 256-core Pascal GPU - CPU - News - HEXUS.net
None of these are "low-power," but can be clocked pretty low. I'd imagine the battery life will be pretty low, because running games like Skyrim at 720p eats a lot of power
But it could definitely be faster when docked. The whole purpose of that dock is to provide power, and to keep it vertical (best heat dissipation). Imagine if your cell phone stayed in turbo mode CONSTANTLY; that's what they're trying to do here.
