Samsung has been jawing about the Exynos 5 Dual since last November. Of course, back then it was the Exynos 5250. Same thing.
We had a wee update in May when it was rumoured that the Exynos 5 Dual might appear in a 2012 device, and now we gots more, er, stuff.
We’ve heard before that the Exynos 5 Dual is capable of processing a whopping 14 billion instructions per second, almost doubling the performance of a Cortex A9-based dual-core 1.5GHz processor.
Now, a new whitepaper from Samsung reveals more about the Exynos 5 Dual. Here are some of the key features:
- Dual-core 1.7GHz Cortex A15 CPU
- Mali T604 GPU
- Support for WXQGA displays
- 1080p 60 FPS video support
- USB 3.0 support
If that gets you hot and bothered, head over to Android Authority – where the implications of the Exynos 5 Dual are studied in frankly insane detail. Check out some of the comments, too.
The Exynos 5 Dual is tipped to make its debut in a Samsung Galaxy Tab 11.6 with an eye-melting resolution of 2560 x 1600. Cripes.
