Samsung Unveils Exynos 5250 Dual-Core SoC in Korea

Paul Lilly

Samsung Korea today announced what it claims is the industry's first next-generation ARM Cortex-A15 equipped 2GHz dual-core system-on-chip (SoC). Dubbed 'Exynos 5250,' this dual-core part is built using a 32nm manufacturing process and offers roughly twice the performance as that of existing 1.5GHz dual-core Cortex A9 products, Samsung claims.

Memory bandwidth is also doubled to 12.8GB/s, which helps the new SoC achieve a new maximum resolution of 2506x1600, paving the way for high resolution displays on upcoming tablets. It's also burly enough to drive 3D content, including high-end games and HD movies.

Other than that, details are in short supply, though we expect to learn more when Samsung issues an announcement in the U.S. In the meantime, you can view the Korean language press release here .
