Samsung presents new multi-core Exynos processors

Samsung has had another great day at MWC 2014 – just a day after the presentation of the Samsung Galaxy S5, the Korean company has announced two new multi-core Exynos processors that will power the next generation of smartphones and mobile devices.

There are two new models of the Exynos family – the Exynos Octa 5422 and the Exynos Hexa 5260. As the names suggest the first chip packs eight computational cores, while the second one comes with six of them.

The Exynos Octa 5422 consists of four Cortex-A15 cores and four Cortex-A7 cores. The higher number cores handle complex tasks and can run at up to 2.1 GHz, while the smaller cores save power and handle simpler tasks; they operate at up to 1.5 GHz. Thanks to Heterogeneous Multi-Processing all cores can work at the same time. In addition this chip has integrated ARM Mali-T628 graphics.

The Exynos Hexa 5260 sports just two Cortex-A15 cores at up to 1.7 GHz, while there are four Cortex-A7 cores at 1.3 GHz. There’s also the same ARM Mali-T628 graphics as well as support for HMP.

Both chips come with support for dual-channeled memory, Embedded DisplayPort output at 2560 x 1440 pixels, ISOCELL camera controller at 16+ MP, NFC and Wi-Fi. The Exynos Octa 5422 and Exynos Hexa 5260 are now mass produced and will appear soon in new mobile devices as well as some modifications of the Samsung Galaxy S5.
