Samsung’s big.LITTLE Exynos 5 features Imagination graphics

Written by Peter Scott



PowerVR SGX 544MP3 GPU on board


Samsung’s new eight-core Exynos 5 SoC will not feature Mali graphics as initially rumoured. It appears that the Korean giant decided to tap Imagination Technologies instead.

The big.LITTLE SOC has PowerVR SGX 544MP3 graphics on board, clocked at 533MHz and capable of delivering 51.1 GFLOPS. The 544MP3 sits between SGX 543MP4 and SGX 554MP4 parts, used in Apple’s A5X and A6X chips respectively. So although Samsung’s new chip will feature eight cores, in terms of graphics performance it will probably be well behind Apple’s A6X.

The A6X is the chip to beat in terms of GPU performance and we’re not sure the next generation of SoCs from Samsung, Qualcomm and Nvidia will have what it takes. Apple can afford to invest a bit more in graphics performance than other chipmakers, so its tablet-centric X-series parts will continue to utilize somewhat pricier and bigger GPUs than the competition.
