Samsung Exynos 5420 vs 5250: Nexus 10 loses miserably
The SIGGRAPH conference is well underway, and graphics processing companies are there in full swing, with NVIDIA dropping the bombshell yesterday that it will bring its desktop rendering architecture to mobile devices with Project Logan, slated to appear in next year's Tegra chipset.

Not to be overshadowed, Samsung also announced recently a new 5420 version of its flagship Exynos 5250 processor, which powers the Google Nexus 10 tablet.

The reference board for the new Exynos 5420 got pitted against the Nexus 10, and as can be expected it destroyed the older processor edition. It not only has beefier processor cores, but also a six-core Mali T-628 GPU, so the 3D rendering results were night and day. We can't wait to hear which will be the first device Samsung will place this bad boy into, as mass production starts next month. There is apparently a new Nexus 10 on the way, so that's where the powerful silicon might end.

It IS the new Nexus 10 in prototype state. In the old N10's defense, Android 4.2 crippled it's performance somewhat (bad thermal management, throttling, seemingly worked out for 4.3, prototype's probably running that). But the new N10 with the improved Octa and the monster T-628 can't come soon enough!

Hope the New Nexus 10 isn't as ugly as the first

the huge bezel and the rounded body, it's my opinion it was ugly, some people agree, some don't.

What's wrong with Bezel on a tablet? I actually prefer to have some bezel on a tablet so I don't constantly end up accidentally opening apps.

Yea you need to have a bezel on a tablet when they require two hand use, try using a edge to edge 10 inch tablet and your fingers will be constantly touching the screen even when you are just trying to hold it.

Tablets and phones shouldn't be designed exactly the same.

The GPU advancements are no joke as the Exynos 5420 put the 5250 to shame. This is screaming Note 3 all over it.

My Nexus 10 is the best performing device I own and I own all of the high end devices or did at one point so this will be ridiculous.

I think it will be about the same performance difference as the iPad 3 - 4, meaning not much. The hardware is way better but most people won't notice the difference.

2x GPU enhancement + 20% boost in CPU = visible performance.

Wait wait wait, a new chipset built to be faster than the old one is actually faster? Oh snap! :)

Still room for improvement :) Frame rates could be doubled on that tablet for smooth performance! Probably next year considering how fast technology is improving..
