It’s been awhile since we heard from Samsung’s beefy Exynos 5250 processors. In fact, it was November of last year when we first told you guys that the dual-core A15’s would be making their debut in Sammy devices starting Q2 of this year. Right on schedule, the Samsung Exynos 5 Dual CPU’s are making an appearance today in a white paper detailing all their features and they’re impressive to say the least. Samsung’s Exynos Dual 5’s are based on A15 architecture clocked to 1.7GHz, but don’t let the “dual” fool you — when paired with the all new Mali-T604 GPU, these will mop the floor with current quad-core A9-based processors, such as the Tegra 3 or the quad-core Exynos found inside the Galaxy S3.
The aforementioned Mali-T604 GPU is capable of supporting 2560×1600 WQXGA resolutions and other features include WiFi Display support, LPDDR3 RAM 800MHz RAM, USB 3.0, Panel Self Refresh for reduced power consumption — all of this built using Samsung’s 32nm HKMG (High K Metal Gate) manufacturing process. Better. Smarter. Faster. 30% less power consumption. I think I need a cold shower…
I have blind hope we’ll see the Exynos Dual 5 inside the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 2, but it looks like the first round of these are reserved for more full sized tablets, like the rumored 11.8-inch Samsung P10 tab.
