Samsung posts an official Exynos 5 Octa render, we eagerly await the first device with it

In case you wondered how an Exynos 5 Octa processor looks like, Samsung posted the first official renders on its Twitter account for the world to see. 

The mobile chip is Samsung's first shot at ARM's big.LITTLE processor architecture, with dual quad-core setup - four Cortex-A15 cores, and four Cortex-A7 ones, with a lot of thermal and power management in-between.

The Exynos 5 Octa is expected to debut later in the year in Samsung's flagship products like the next iterations of the Galaxy phone and tablet line, and when it hits we will be sure to make some tests, and gauge the real world performance/power consumption ratio.

Dual Core (2) X Quad Core (4) = Dual Quad Core (8 Cores)?!

It's quad-core with 4 companion cores

So by Samsung's logic Tegra 3 and 4 are pentacore?

quad cores of exynos were defeated with dual core of qualcomm, so i expect qualcomm's quad cores to defeat exynos octa cores.

i really think this 8core is a joke, but we'll still see about that! if it can outmatched snapdragon 800 (i want to say tegra 4, but even A6X outmatched it)

Again, this race to octa-core and up is getting ridiculous. Wasteful.

Blame ARM for that.

Seriously???? 8 cores????
Android don't even fully utilise 4 cores for 95% of the time. The S4 Pro with the Adreno320 seems to be enough for next two years and the apps to come.
I think 8 core is simply waste of money and power.

What I want to see is a quad-core processor with improved GPU, just like what TEGRA4 did, I'm waiting for the TEGRA-4..!

Even the Tegra3 on my Nexus 7 is having no problem with ANY app I throw at it and I believe it can handle even the coming next-gen 3D games.

My nexus 7 is terrible slowest device I have had...most wanted lags as hell,horn lags,wild blood lags,nova 3 lags...tegra 3 is a terrible chip...wish the nexus 7 had the s4 or exynos 4.

yea, tegra3 was a huge fail when compared to the s4 pro and exynos4.. i just hope tegra4 makes up places this time..!

soon the smartphone world will be just like present word of pc..where users are free to install the operating system they want...consumers will be the winners as they ll be having chance to choose the specific hardware in relation to kind of OS they want to install/use
