What do we have here? An official document on Samsung's upcoming Exynos 5 dual-core System-on-a-Chip (SoC). From the document, we can see it will sport 12.8GB/sec of bandwidth that runs through two 32-bit 800MHz memory ports, capable of providing support for both LPDDR3 and standard DDR3.

The chip will also support USB 3.0 and SATA 3.0, which is a great step forward for Samsung and future devices that will feature this Exynos chip. It will also feature support for HSIC and C2C interfaces, which will give the chip the capability of LTE. High resolution image sensors are also getting baked in, which should provide support for handling 8-megapixel at 30fps, very nice.

 

The nitty-gritty is that the new Exynos chip sports an ARM Mali-T604 GPU and a dual-core ARM Cortex-A15 which should be clocked between 1.7 and 2.0GHz, where we should expect performance to reach 14,000 DMIPS, which is 0.2DMIPS/MHz per core faster than Qualcomm's new Snapdragon S4 CPU, and 1.0 DMIPS/MHz per core faster than NVIDIA's Tegra 3.
