Samsung has upped its Applications Processor (AP) game with the introduction of a new SoC (System-on-chip), Exynos 5250. The new Exynos chip clearly pips previous generation Exynos processors that boasts two Cortex-A15 clocked at speedy 2GHz. This dual-core configuration is developed by using Samsung’s 32nm-low power HKMG process that results in better performance while lowering down the power consumption.
Samsung says the new Exynos chip is meant for high-end tablets but we wouldn’t rule out the possibility to see it any smartphone just yet. Exynos 5250’s graphics performance is four times the SoC using Cortex-A9 and supports stereoscopic 3D displays along with a display resolution of WQXGA (2560×1600 pixels).
Samsung will start mass producing the SoC in Q2 of next year.
