Samsung details next-gen Exynos 5 Dual processor

Samsung earlier this week, detailed its next-generation mobile processor, the EXYNOS 5 Dual, in a blog post..  If you thought today’s current smartphones and tablets had beast hardware then wait until these things arrive.

Key specifications for the system-on-a-chip (SoC) include the following:

  • Cortex-A15 dual core (with each core running at 1.7GHz speed)
  • Up to 2560×1600 WQXGA display support
  • 1080p 60fps video hardware
  • High-speed interfaces USB 3.0 and SATA3
  • Image Signal Processor (ISP) of 8M pixel 30fps
  • OpenGL ES 3.0, OpenCL 1.1, and DirectX 11 support

Head to the blog post to get all the details which, frankly, tends to float just above our heads.  As many of you know, we’re not the blog for intricate hardware details and benchmarks. All we know is that this stuff is going to be pretty darn epic.

Thanks to those of you who passed this along.

    Woooow, now days, mobile processors are very close to those in our NETBOOKS, LAPTOPS and tower PC’s. It’s amazing and exiting to know how technology has blazed to bring us this much power in such a small devices.

    Every two months, these companies come up with a new device twices as powerful as the predecessor we have, when we are not done knowing and liking the one we got. Sometimes, the newes ones are thinger, brighter, faster, more storage or the newest OS our 5 month old phone will not ever have, only if we root (sometimes not too easy and dangerous) and flash a custom rom.

    However, Is android stability and performance builds on roms improving to take advantage of processor? Or Is android ever going to be the same plataform across phone line ups?

    What about carriers not helping on updates, upgrades and support.
