Exynos 5 Dual chip is unrobed by Samsung

• http://phys.org, by Nancy Owano
The company is hoping that Exynos 5 Dual will lead the pack in the high-end mobile application processor market. A Samsung white paper that presents the details says that the “Exynos 5 Dual is designed for high-end tablets that require multi-window operations, full multitasking, and fast response while running applications. Exynos 5 Dual is the first chip in the market to integrate Cortex-A15 dual core. The computing capability of Cortex-A15 dual core is similar to the CPU of a personal computer.”
 
Designed with the 32nm low-power process, Exynos 5 Dual provides performance features such as dual core CPU, highest memory bandwidth, WQXGA display, 1080p 60fps video hardware, 3D graphics hardware, Image Signal Processor, and high-speed interfaces such as USB 3.0 and SATA3.
 
Some Samsung watchers will not be surprised to see a quad-core version of the dual-core Exynos 5 next year.
 
 The upcoming Exynos 5 is a dual core chip; it does promise faster speeds running at 1.7 gigahertz with ARM’s quad-core Mali T-604 graphics processor. “With Mali-T604, Exynos 5 Dual delivers two times better GPU performance than Exynos 4,” according to Samsung.
 
AndroidAuthority comments on the implications. “What’s nice about Exynos 5 Dual is that it doesn’t come just with a next-gen CPU, but also a next-gen GPU. This is a fortunate match, as they are both designed by ARM itself, so they benefit from higher integration, and also because ARM changes its GPU architecture only once every five years.”
