Samsung Exynos 4 Quad CPU is official, powers Galaxy S III

Samsung Electronics today introduced the industry’s first quad-core application processor built on the High-k Metal Gate (HKMG) low-power process technology.

It was already rumored that the new Galaxy S III will be powered by a new quad-core CPU. Today Samsung made the Exynos 4 Quad official. The 1.4GHz Exynos 4 Quad based on the ARM CORTEX A9 quad-core allows system-level architects to integrate maximized power efficiencies into smartphones and tablets which enables double the processing power at a 20 percent lower power bill over its predecessor, the 45nm process based Exynos 4 Dual.

Benefitting from a use case where the parallel processing and workload sharing among the four cores is necessary, the Exynos 4 Quad is particular well suited for heavy-load applications such as 3D games, video editing, and calculation-intensive simulation.

The Samsung Galaxy S III will be unveiled on May 3.
