Samsung Announces 2GHz Exynos 5250 - Twice The Speed Of Current Exynos Chips

It's not much of a secret that the Samsung Exynos process is one of the fastest dual-core mobile chips on the planet. Sammy announced the blazing fast evolution of its flagship processor this morning, and it's said to be twice as fast as the current chip. It's still dual-core and clocks in at 2GHz, only a slight bump up from the current speed.


As you likely already know, though, sheer numbers mean nothing in terms of actually processor speed - it's all about architecture. The next-gen Exynos is the first SoC (System-on-Chip) to use ARM's new Cortex-A15 processor, which is where the real difference is made. It's faster and contains a substantially faster graphics performance over the existing A9 architecture, supporting resolutions up to 2,560 x 1,600.
The Exynos 5250 is set to being shipping in Q2 of next year.
