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.

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 developments.
