Samsung shows quad-core Exynos chipset

24 February, 2012
It packs four Cortex-A9 cores built using a 32nm process for better performance and lower power usage.

Samsung made solid chip,Good Year for Samsung good luck.

Don't tell quad-core processors always use more beastly power. :)

Anonymous, 24 Feb 2012Right. After my dissapointing experience with the SGSII (due to ... morelol whats wrong with the sgsII performance? :O its still the best and competes with the tegra 3.

Benchmarks are useless , they dont prove anything in day to day usage.

texas instruments omap 5 is much much better than exynos
5250 and even Exynos 4412 as OMAP5 uses 28nm lithography and beats quadcore easily.this is a waste.it should have 28nm lithography and 4 cortex-a15 cores.obviously 28nm saves more battery than 32nm.32nm is a common lithography.exynos is still behind OMAP5.TI MAKES BEST PROCESSORS.

Nice chip guys. Looks good. Well done

Is this the first component of Galaxy S 3 to be touted out in the open ??

  • AnonD-2349

NOOOO!!!! i dont want this
i want some nice a15 coupled with juicy a7 cores with a t604 gpu atleast...
u can use it for galaxy r2 or what ever you call it but not the s3

Right. After my dissapointing experience with the SGSII (due to the hype of it's spec sheet), I'll take the power of this one with a pinch of salt.

What about the touted mali 604? When will we get the A15?

hopefully GS3 uses this chip (quad-core a9) with Mali 604, isnt that why GS3 is delayed.

[deleted post]pls read the article completely. its well explained.

  • blueglue

Great work, exynos dual core has an advantage among its cometitors . hopefully that shall continue with quad-core too.

usage of 32nm should bring more effective power usage.

What GPU shall be mated with this chip?

It's interesting because, a lot of people don't see the point of quad-core, because they see it is purely as 'raw power' and processing speed, etc.

But from this, any tech that can improve battery life / consumption HAS to be a bonus, the fact that it'll give a bump in speed - is nice extra!

I suspect this is the kind of thing we'll see in HTC and Moto (and LG) - quad cores claiming better battery as opposed to just touting super-fast processing...

So it has begun. Advent of Galaxy S 3.

This will be a beast out of processor :)

  • AnonD-27136

It will be good if this chip-set decreases price of tablets and smartphone

samsung can really make things ;)

only drawback soc should use 4 Cortex-A15MP cores.

  • TheIndian

Just 26% performance improvement...how boring!

  • Amir

use it samsung galaxy s3 plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
