Samsung already hinted that it would up the ante of its current Exynos 5 Octa SoC. True enough, the South Korean conglomerate unveiled its second-generatation Exynos 5 Octa processor that touts a six-core ARM Mali-T628 GPU processor - a first in the industry.
Samsung new eight-core chip hopes to give designers a "powerful, energy-efficient tool to build multifaceted user interface capabilities directly into the system architecture." Samsung further promises to boost 3D graphics processing capabilities over two times with the new SoC, although we still need to experience it in order to believe what it says.
Powered by four ARM Cortex-A15 processors at 1.8GHz and four Cortex-A7 cores at 1.3 GHz, the new processor, implemented under ARM's big.LITTLE processing technology, is expected to perform computing on Graphics Processing Units (GPGPU) and support OpenGL ES 3.0 and Full Profile Open CL 1.1. Samsung tops it off with over 14.9 gigabytes of memory paired with a dual-channel LPDDR3 at 933MHz.
