Samsung unveils new Exynos 5 Octa 5420 processor

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.

We're still not sure what devices will be using the new chip, but mass-production, according to Samsung, is already scheduled for August

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
