I really hope samsung brings its A game this year, and not do a htc where they phone of the year one year then dont really try hard enough the next

Omap5 uses 28nm lithography and exynos uses 32nm lithography.still omap5 saves more battery than exynos with equal performance.

let's wait and see ;)
exynos blew all other chips made with the same lithography process out of the water through optimizations...
technology for the next 10 generations of products is already here, they just dose it to us, so we always have something to spend money on... so, it's all about timing and monoply over manufacturing facilities...

It blew nothing out of the water.
An old tech tegra 2 in an S2 outbenched Exynoss.
Every other manufacturer had higher resolutions so a different chip used in the same phone really shows the actual performance.

A tegra2 in an S2. which phone was that again? Do you mean the crapdragon? It doesnt hold a candle to an exynos s2. in real life or benching. Resolution differences at that scale are minimal. Those chips are well past the point where a minor bump in resolution is a big FPS difference. They did that test with the tegra2s ad different resolutions and it ended up being something like a 1-2fps difference in benchmarks. Nothing to worry about.
the size of the chip is a good indicator of power and juice consumption, but it is not the only indicator. the exynos chip delivered the most power and at the same time was way more battery efficient than the omap/tegra/crapdragon on the same die size. samsung makes these babys from the ground up, they know how to optimize them.
Samsung may suck at their software, but they are hands down the kings of hardware.
Besides, the OMAP5 is a long way off. By the time that comes out, they will be readying the 5xxx quadcores based on A15 designs.

Oh no! Omap5 using 28nm from TSMC with Sion/Poly transistor.
SS using 32nm with HKMG transistor.
With 32nm HKMG meaning 35-50% higher performance than 28nm Sion/Poly.
With 32nm HKMG use less power 30% than 28nm Sion/Poly.

Well...that may not be true...when exynos in sgs2 and omap in gnex were compared ther performed equally...but omap's chip consumed more power...and both chips are fabricated with 45nm...google it for more details.

phones will be faster than computers in a future not so distant

That will never happen until battery tech drastically improves.

So when Microsoft releases Windows Phone 8 a.k.a. Apollo, since ARM will be supported, Samsung may use Exynos in its WP8 cellphones? I can hardly wait!
Go Sammy! :)

This is what I've been waiting for can't wait till this Summer when they announce their phone

rocking 1.8 ghz..................... tetra-cores.

To out this into perspective, my new laptop is powered by a 1.5Ghz AMD A6 quad core. Let's see if the Exynos is as stable overclocked to 2.8Ghz as my AMD is ;-)
It's amazing to see how far mobile technology is advancing. Maybe in a year or two we'll finally see Android and iOS tablets rivaling Windows and Mac laptops as far as usability and functionality.

Id give it till probably Q1 2014 before they start to converge at a real level. Q1 2013 is going to bring us into xbox/ps3 level systems... which sounds great, but those systems are 6 years old. A generation or 2 after that and we should see real convergence.

I heard Samsung gonna manufacture the Next Xbox or whatever its call
14. kshell1 (Posts: 1143; Member since: 05 Oct 2011)
-_- microsoft manufactures the Xbox line of consoles
15. Bluesky02 (Posts: 1439; Member since: 05 Dec 2011)
Yeah Xbox belong to Microsoft, Microsoft chose Samsung as the Manufacturer. That's what i saw from rumors headline. Google it.

Well you never know until you use 1. Most of these chips are sounding really great on paper just like last years dual core chips but some people are not happy by their performance so never judge 1 before you use it
