Samsung announces Exynos 5422 Octa and Exynos 5260 Hexa processors, both supporting Quad HD displays

0. phoneArena 26 Feb 2014, 02:12 posted on

The Exynos 5422 Octa has four 2.1GHz cores and four 1.5GHz cores, being the processor that will power some Galaxy S5 variants. The Exynos 5260 Hexa is the CPU that's found inside the Galaxy Note 3 Neo...

it seems 5422 will be used on another S5 version and the great thing is,8 cores can work simultaneously.

Is that efficient for power consumption?

It is crucial for better power consumption, because it allows whichever combination of cores to be on/idle.

Didn't they say there will be 2 GS5 editions? (1 being premium?)

I really hope so, samsung are the only android OEM that appeal to me.

8 cores big.LITTLE architecture is an useless technology, a waste of silicons

I was actually hoping it was while I was watching it.....

I think a Galaxy S5 Neo is coming soon with one of these processors under the hood and a Quad HD display. :P

If that's true, then the E5422 is inferior than SD801. Just like Note 3 and it's Neo sibling.

There's no way a Neo version will get a better specs than the original one.

So what? Snapdragon 800 and Tegra K1 support UHD input and output..

the problem is "Supporting" a resolution doesn't mean "good performance" in a resolution.

a good processor for 2560*1600 is the one that support 4K resolution. because we want 60fps GUI without any hiccups.

For gaming maybe it's going to stutter, because of the dynamic scene, but for watching movies & tvs and everyday use it's going to be stable. Last CES Qualcomm demostrated a UHD and Surround sound streaming from Snapdragon 800. :)

Semi-conductors should make a big.LITTLE quad core for mid-rangers.

the Hexacore version is just idiotic, the 4 A7 will have similar performance to the 2 A15, so what the point?

A hexacore with 4 A15 and 2 A7 would make much more sense...

Your argument is what's idiotic, all 6 cores can run at the same time if necessary, performing pretty darn good, see rival site Note 3 Neo review. The 4 A7 cores are still better for low-power tasks than the 2 A15s, and the Neo has better battery life than the OctaCore Note 3, plus this set-up is cheaper, so win-win for Samsung, and hush-hush for you.

I agree, unless you are a person who knows the technology and made the device you don't know anything. I'm pretty sure the wizkids at Samsung know what they're doing. If you guys know all of this stuff then you'd be working for Sammy :-P

". The 4 A7 cores are still better for low-power tasks than the 2 A15s, and the Neo has better battery life than the OctaCore Note 3 "

right, because that has also nothing to do with the lower res screen,,,

So then.. there will another big thing coming soon. I wonder is the twin S5 or a new Note will come.... hahaha

Yep, this will be that premium version of the S5, i.e. the Galaxy F!

Btw, the 2.1Ghz reveals that it uses the latest Cortex A15 r3p3 variant, that will also tick in the Tegra K1.
It is significantly more efficient than the standard A15

Not significantly but only mediocre, the maximum clockspeed only increased from 1.9 to 2.3 GHz. It's just a minor revision and still in 28nm. I wonder who is the first to use 20nm in the ARM processor.

20nm isn't going to arrive this year i think since all the chips that are supposed to be released by q3 like snapdragon 610,615,410,
tegra k1 are all 28nm .. so most probably at ces 2015

so no exynos 64 bit this year?

Wow! How many varients of S5s Samsung releasing this year?

Thats just rubbish!Octa and hexa core processors,tell me does any app use even quad-core soc-s?I mean look at apple,they got a lot of chip experts from AMD and they are trying to build chips that can practicly operate.Most apps today barely are optimized for dual-core soc-s,only gamey require more horse power thats why apple puts a quad-core GPU on their devices.I think they are trying to be like Intel in desktop space where the number of cores or megapixels isn't the only factor.

Btw tegra k1 and snapdragon 805 both support 4k resolutions. So this one is just meh.
