More from the Mobile World Congress and from Samsung, we wont count its disastrous move to back Tizen, is the Exynos 5 Octa. This is the newest major processor iteration in Samsung's CPU line-up, which will have eight CPU cores. That is a great feat and should easily top as the Company’s fastest and greatest processor which will fire up Samsung's very popular line of tablets.
Is this a gamble? Well, there is no success without a few inventive technologies in the business arena. News of the Octa first broke out at the CES 2013, and will soon be prevalent in Samsung’s new tablets, the more pricey ones. The Exynos 5 dual is already seen in the Nexus 10. The Exynos 5dual has two CPU cores and was created using the A15 fab process. The Octa powers eight CPU cores which is four A7s and four A15s. At its booth ARM had the CPU running all new heights, displaying and effectually showing off the relative core-by-core stress. It also demonstrated the relative thermal draw each task pulled.
However, the Octa needs to be put through a GPU-focused test to get the best from and to see if it actually is capable of delivering performance at top speeds maintaining par excellence. The Octa will soon stand the real test when used in Samsung devices, however the Company seems to be plenty confident about its new powerhouse creation. A direct comparison is the only thing that will have us know for sure of the Octa’s capabilities. Apart from being showcased in the Nexus 10, the Exynos 5 Octa will work best and will be most interesting to be seen in a flagship model by Samsung, hopefully before the third quarter of this year. No official news however is forthcoming from Samsung, as the Company is being quite secretive. We’re sure whats already on the table is enough to make other manufacturers shudder, what with your tablet working faster than your PC, laptops and all.
