Samsung has published a PDF which describes the technical details and product highlights of its next-generation mobile processor. The very new Exynos 5 Dual series of mobile processors will be clocked at 1.7 GHz and have been made on Samsung’s 32 nm process using its High-K Metal Gate method.
The processor itself is an ARM Cortex A15, with support for the latest technologies and future ones too. Wi-Fi display is supported, so is USB 3.0 connectivity.
The interesting feature about the Exynos 5250 is that it uses two Cortex A15 processors clocked at 2 GHz. With this kind of firepower, it can easily handle a 2560 x 1600 resolution display.
In terms of graphics performance, it’s supposedly some four times more powerful than Cortex A9. The chip could end up in a high-definition TV and a media player device among others.
Thanks to the Mali T604 graphics chip we’ll also be enjoying even better HD video and gaming. Coupled with the processor this chip will also give device’s the ability to play Full HD 1080p video at 60 fps, which is double the frames per second that today’s devices achieve as standard.
Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy Note II later this month, and it could very well be packing in this new chip. Unless Samsung comes out with something better between now and the start of next year, the Galaxy S4 could well also use it.
