Yesterday, Samsung unveiled a new System on a Chip (SoC) that they will be using down the road. The Exynos 5250 is a dual-core chip, having a Cortex A-15 chip in each, all clocked in at 2GHz. Samsung has tested these chips and deemed that they should double the performance of a 1.5GHz chip that is also based on Cortex A-9.
Now, do not go having dreams of this chip powering the next Galaxy S line, Samsung said that these are going to be used for “high-end tablets.” These chips support stereoscopic 3D and can even muster up a screen resolution of a whopping 2560 × 1600. Talk about high-definition. Maybe we will see this chip powering the sequel to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1? They are on schedule to be mass produced in the second quarter of next year.
