Samsung are continuing to push on with their range of Exynos system-on-chips, the next chip in the range is the Exynos 5250 which Samsung unveiled today. The SoC is Dual-Core and clocked at 2GHz and is based of of ARM’s Cortex-A15 architecture which they say is 40% faster than the current range of Cortex-A9 SoC.
It’s strange that Samsung aren’t working on a range of Quad-Core chips, though obviously believe they can continue to squeeze every last MHz of power out of the Dual-Core design with the new architecture. The Exynos 5250 will support stereoscopic 3D displays along with a maximum resolution of 2560×1600 (WQXGA) which would be insane on a tablet — the piece of technology this chip is designed for. The graphics power is said to be 4x that of the current range of Cortex-A9 chips.
The Exynos 5250 will go into mass production sometime during Q2 next year, so we might just see it shown off at Mobile World Congress in February. Exciting, speedy times ahead.
