Samsung rolls out 2GHz Exynos 5250 chip

Written by Fudzilla staff



Two A15 cores, massive performance boost


Samsung has officially announced its fastest Exynos chip to date, a 2GHz dual-core dubbed Exynos 5250.

The new chip will succeed the 4210, used in Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S II phone. Unlike its predecessor, the 5250 is based on the A15 core and it is said to boost CPU performance twofold. It is built using the low-power HKMG 32nm process.

Graphics performance gains are even more impressive. Samsung claims it is four times faster than the old chip and it supports resolutions up to 2560 x 1600, which could come in handy for next generation tablets. Support for stereoscopic 3D is also on board.

The new chips are sampling as we speak, but full scale production will begin in Q2 next year, so we won’t see new Galaxy phones based on it anytime soon.
