Samsung announces Exynos quad-core
Samsung’s new flagship Galaxy smartphone is slated for launch next week and the outfit is using the hype to introduce its latest Exynos chip.
The new processor is Samsung’s first quad-core ARM chip, but unlike Nvidia’s Tegra 3, the Exynos 4 Quad is a 32nm part. Samsung claims the new chip will have 20 percent lower power consumption than its dual-core 45nm predecessors.
There is still no word on graphics, but if the rumour mill is to be believed it rocks a Mali-400MP4 core. The chip is capable of clocks up to 1.4GHz and we don’t doubt for a second that it will be more than a match for Nvidia’s Tegra 3 and Qualcomm’s S4 dual-cores.
We won’t wait long to see the new quad Exynos in action, as it powers the new Galaxy.
