Although Samsung may have unveiled their Exynos 5250 late last year, they have just begun promoting the new chip, with production in full swing. The CPU is sure to impress with its Cortex-A15 architecture and 2GHz clockspeed, which Samsung says is 100% faster than Cortex-A9 dual-core chips and 50% less power hungry.
Exynos 5 will be able to churn out 3D gaming at 60fps and support 8MP cameras at full 30fps. Samsung go to lengths to show that it will support WQXGA resolution (2560×1600), even including a developer setup in the video that has a 2560×1600 tablet display. Perhaps they are foreshadowing the release of their rumoured 2GHz dual-core 2560×1600 specced tablet.
With the inclusion of an LTE modem, we can’t wait to see this chip inside new tablets and smartphone in the near future. It will be a very strong competitor to the Qualcomm S4 chip which also boasts dual-core Cortex-A15 architecture. Though don’t expect it to be in the Galaxy S III — that’ll be a Cortex-A9 quad-core chip.
