not at all. High end computer video cards have been using it for a good while now, no reason it cant come down to the mobile space. :) Its my wish list :) 128 GIGAbytes a second in data transfer capability :)

There's a difference between GDDR5 and DDR5. :) DDR4 is not even out yet, let alone DDR5, and GDDR5 is for graphics cards only and will never be in smartphones. :( However, Sammy will most likely use the LPDDR3 RAM which they recently showcased(which is awesome). :)

1080p at 5 inches would be around 440 ppi... The human eye can't distinguish density over 300 ppi, so that extra 140 pixels would be sorta useless

I think the SG3 will have a better powerful dual core rather than a quad core.

I would just like for other manufacturers to think like samsung does and not to race to be the first with new cores and stuff but to wait for the new stuff to become as best as possible and than to make a phone from it, I am talking about GPU and CPU here because screens are great and because well samsung will put 4 a-15 cores that will smoke away tegra3 and some badass GPU that will smoke tegras GPU, I'm not saying tegra 3 is bad I'm just asking why the rush, I know that being first in industry with something is important but being best is even more important

Doesn't Samsung have an event planned for sometime this month or next? I'm really sure that that's when we'll see the GS3/successor to GS2.
