Samsung Smartphones will have 64 bit Processors in 2014

Samsung Smartphones will have 64 bit Processors in 2014

  After Apple’s release of the first 64-bit OS and their launch of the iPhone 5C targeted for the Chinese market, Jong Kyun a  Samsung Electronics executive stated “Samsung understands that Apple intends to boost its mobile business in China, as well as in Japan, meaning that we should try harder in these countries” This  will be interesting to see how Samsung tackles this as Apple had optimized the iOS 7 for 64-bit processors while Android OS is not. A 64-bit is necessary for all devices which have 4GB or more RAM, so Samsung is already upto 3GB with their latest flagship device the Galaxy Note 3, so maybe next year they will introduce a 4GB smartphone which runs on a 64-bit version of Android. Next month is expected to be the launch of the all new Android 4.4 KitKat so maybe it would be coming with 64-bit support.  These are still speculations, so only time will tell how this all pans...

Samsung unveil new 8-core Exynos 5 Octa processor at CES 2013

Samsung unveil new 8-core Exynos 5 Octa processor at CES 2013

  We all knew that CES was supposed to be full of surprises and that is exactly what it has turned out to be till now. The four day event has paved a way for both companies and developers alike to showcase their respective talents and enthrall the world with new and innovative sate of the art products. With that said, Samsung do lead the race when it comes to innovation and creativity which is indeed a fact and that is exactly what the Korean tech giants are doing since the very first day of the mega event. From UHD televisions to flexible displays to many other things to say the least and if that was not enough, wait till you find out in the next few lines as to exactly what Samsung has in store for you next.     Samsung today unveiled the world’s first Exynos 8-Core mobile chip called the 8-core Octa Core Chip of Cortex A15 and Cortex A7 CPU cores in a “Big.Little” configuration. The Big.Little architecture uniquely combines very low-power cores like the one present in the Cortex A7 with higher end performance cores like the ones found in the Cortex A15 which gives an extremely well blended mix of performance and and optimized battery life. The Exynos chipset features two quad-core SoCs, with one being an ARM Cortex-A15 based implementation clocked at 1.8GHz, while the other is an ARM Cortex-A7 implementation at 1.2GHz. The former will be used for the usual CPU-intensive tasks such as gaming, web browsing, HD video playback and more. If you aren’t doing these things then the phone will favor the weaker (but still powerful), more battery friendly set of cores.     As mentioned earlier, this indeed would be the first 8-core processor for handheld devices  and is most certainly ready to surpass its predecessor, the Quad-core chip currently running in all the so called “powerful” devices. The one question that does happen to arise now is that whether this beast of a chip be able to beat the likes of the new monster unleashed by Nvidia, The Tegra 4 with its 72 GPU cores ? We’ll have to wait and see....

Samsung to reveal 8 core chips in February

Samsung to reveal 8 core chips in February

Samsung are vying for a February launch of its new line of “Octa-Core Chips” at the annual ISSC conference. These powerful chips are rumored to have upto 8 cores which would be running on a Cortex A15 and Cortex A7 CPU in a “Big.Little” configuration. Big.Little architecture combines very low-power cores like Cortex A7 with very high-performance cores like Cortex A15, for a well optimized mobile experience and balanced battery life.     These chips would be a first of their kind as currently speaking, even the most powerful devices are only running on the Quad-core chips. As far as we have been tipped off, these chips might very well be containing 2 clusters of dual core CPU’s specially designed for smartphones namely the 2 A15+2 A7 chips. Ladies and Gentlemen it seems that the future is not too far from our reach and who knows me might just be getting our hands on one of these powerful devices as early as February 2013. Let’s keep our fingers crossed....

Samsung’s new Exynos Dual 5 Processors set to humble its predecessors

Samsung’s new Exynos Dual 5 Processors set to humble its predecessors

The Beast has finally been released !! That would just be an understatement for Samsung’s upcoming line of Exynos Dual 5 processors. The last time we heard about these little monsters was earlier this year at the Mobile World Congress and since that day no further developments were reported. According to Samsung’s official blog, the Samsung Exynos 5 Dual CPU’s are making an appearance today in a white paper detailing all their features and they’re impressive to say the least. Samsung’s Exynos Dual 5′s are based on A15 architecture clocked to 1.7GHz, but don’t let the “dual” fool you. These would mop the floor with current quad-core A9-based CPU’s like the Tegra 3 or the quad-core Exynos found inside the Galaxy S III.   The Mali-T604 GPU is capable of supporting 2560×1600 WQXGA resolutions and other features include WiFi Display support, LPDDR3 RAM 800MHz RAM, Panel Self Refresh for reduced power consumption all of this built using Samsung’s 32nm HKMG (High K Metal Gate) manufacturing process promises better, smarter, faster and to top it all off it reduces power consumption by 30%. USB 3.0 and even SATA III support are on board, which opens up a host of possibilities. Samsung was quick to point out that USB 3.0 could be used not only to speed up content transfer, but also serve up added functionality, as it can support external keyboards and other devices, like an LTE modem. Key Features at a Glance: Dual-core 1.7 Ghz Cortex A15 CPU Mali T604 GPU OpenGL ES 3.0 OpenCL 1.1 full profile Support for WXQGA displays Wi-Fi display support 12.8 GB/s memory bandwidth with 2 port 800 Mhz LPDDR3 RAM support 1080p 60 FPS video performance and VP8 codec decoder USB 3.0 support   CORTEX A-15 PROCESSOR   MALI T604 GPU   The above videos show exactly what these power house chip-sets are actually capable of and within no time they are going to completely change the face of mobile computing once they start rolling out in smartphones and tablets. There are rumors stating that the first tablet to run on the Exynos Dual 5 processor would possibly be the Galaxy Tab 11.8. Will keep up guys updated on any further...
