Samsung announce new Exynos 5250, Cortex-A15, 2GHz, dual-core chip

Samsung have today announced their first Cortex-A15 System-on-a-Chip (SoC), the Exynos 5250. The chip is clocked at 2GHz and is built on a 32nm process, which should offer competitive per core performance as the Qualcomm and TI designs that will come out in 2012.

Compute performance is set to be doubled over the current 1.5GHz Cortex-A9-based Exynos processors, and memory bandwidth is quoted at 12.8GB/sec. Samsung haven't mentioned the on-board GPU, where performance is expected to be four-fold over their earlier Exynos models, which should kick some ass against Apple's A5 SoC.

 

New power-saving technology involves a low-power frame buffer for static screens, which should allow the GPU to be fully powered down when displaying just the home screen or another static image. Next-generation tablet screens are expected to hit WQXGA (2560x1600), which means the GPU will have to be suped up to handle it.
