Samsung introduces new Exynos 4212 chip, new CMOS sensors

Written by Slobodan Simic

Dual-core at 1.5GHz
Samsung has announced its new Exynos chip, the dual-core Exynos 4212 clocked at 1.5GHz. Based on the 32nm HKMG process, the new Exynos 4212 promisses more graphics performance and higher power efficiency.

Following in the footsteps of Samsung's Exynos 4210 that can be found in Galaxy S II models, Samsung has now announced its newest chip based on two Cortex-A9 cores and built on 32nm High-K Metal Gate process technology, the Exynos 4212. Thanks to the new manufacturing process, the new Samsung Exynos 4212 promisses up 50 percent higher 3D graphics performance and up to 30 percent higher power efficiency.

In addition to the new Exynos 4212 chip, Samsung also rolled out a 16-megapixel CMOS sensor for smartphones as well as a 1.2-megapixel one for front-facing cameras that has 720p HD 30fps support.

The Exynos 4212 was said to be sampling in Q4 but recent announcements of 1.5GHz clocked Galaxy S II HD LTE and Galaxy S II LTE are most likely first smartphones with this chip. The CMOS sensors are scheduled to ship from Novemeber.

In other words, this chip utterly destroys Tegra and Kal-El.

Ooops, bad strategy Nvidia. Bye bye, don't let the door hit your ass on the way out Huang.

You claim to be supposedly intelligent but all you do is to be the first person to post crap on nvidia news.
Intelligent people are not biased.
Intelligent people do not wish for a company to go bankrupt.
Intelligent people do not claim to know everything about a product which isn't even out yet.
You, you are not Intelligent. If you were you wouldn't have posted such stupid hateful comments.

yes, but he's right
ARM chips are way more powerful and power efficient compared to nvidia's/intel's offerings

Wow, wish I could thumbs up your comment more eddman. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to read an article and then read intelligent comments without all the trolls.

Anyway, while I think this is good news for samsung, its not a game changer. I have a SGSII and with a 50% graphics performance boost that would put me a little ahead of the tegra 2 on synthetic benchmarks but not even close to tegra 3. But I will say perhaps its a better over clocker because of the shrink my sgs2 is running happily at 1.73ghz so that in conjunction with better power efficiency may make it viable upgrade......to me anyway

Tegra 2 and 3 are ARM chips ...cortex a9 I believe.

Come on!! nvidia's tegra chips have ARM CPUs.

but you do realize that all nvidia tegra is based on ARM right?

reading the comments above proved one thing. Don't post if you are not too sure about your own "FACTS".

I'm sorry, I wanted to say that Nvidia's/intel's (whenever they may come) offerings are bad compared to competition (samsung, TI, Qualcomm)

Sounds like it, 32nm should give them a big boost in battery life. And battery life is the bane of every smartphone user. I would say this is a big deal.
