Is it "octo-core" or "octa-core"?

Settle an argument: Is it "octo-core" or "octa-core"?
I thought "octa" was purely a Samsung thing?

Technically, it should be "octo" as that's the correct English prefix for eight, but Samsung decided, for some reason, that they'd use "octa" instead. I'm not sure why, though, maybe they thought it sounded better, or maybe it's just a mistranslation which they decided not to fix.
