This New Year 2013 will surely be the year of advancements in processors in mobile computing. Don’t Agree? Then you might have missed the releases of Tegra 4 from NVIDIA and Snapdragon 800 from Qualcomm. And finally the Big Boss of 2012 arrived with “Hunk” Samsung Exonys 5 with eight cores, and we have to announce that the very processor has won the race. It not only won, but won by a big margin.
1. Power saver:
Energy conservation and Effects of technology on Environment are going to be the biggest issues of near future. Living up to the criteria expected from every new technology, Samsung Exonys 5 is using really less power. It is based on 28nm SoC (System on Chip) architecture, that suggesting the smaller size and lesser power consumption. According to company’s official announcement at CES 2013, they are all up for 70% less power consumption than Exonys 4.
2. Octa Core means better Organization of work load:
The very processor comprises two quad core sets. One is of ARM cortex A-15 and other is of ARM cortex A-7. It’s a new concept from ARM rightly named big.LITTLE. For tasks that require high complexity will be carried out by activating cortex A-15 CPU and the general low complexity tasks will be carried out by activation of Cortex A-7 CPU. This betterment of work organization is also going to help better battery life. Samsung also claimed that this new Octa Core Exonys 5 is going to be the best ever performer as far as 3D gaming and 3D viewing is concerned.
By these amazing features Samsung is definitely going to rock this year. As per the speculation, much awaited upcoming devices Samsung S4 and Samsung Note3 will be powered by these Exonys 5 Octa Core processors.
So, it will be a cut throat competition overall, that we are going to witness this year.
President Samsung Electronic Components’ Business, Stephen Woo unveiled the very processor while saying, “An architecture that gives you all the power you want to run intense applications but smart enough to conserve energy while you are doing more basic tasks.” He also added, “This is a kind of processor that has never been seen before in mobile device, for heavy duty multitasking, without lag or disruption to other applications.”
Ultimately, the two finger “V” sign is telling us the more emphatic story. We are waiting for a move from Apple.Inc, Intel and NVIDIA. Fingers crossed!
