Exynos 5 Octa

Samsung has chosen (or has been forced) to ship the Galaxy S4 with two different processors – one model contains the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 and the other Samsung’s very own Exynos Octa. What most consumers don’t know is that Samsung might be in a position to increase the performance of Exynos Octa based Galaxy S4 devices by as much as 10 percent this summer just by releasing new software.

A newly published analysts report has investigated the potential performance of the the upcoming processors from Nvidia and Qualcomm and concluded that the Tegra 4 will outshine the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800. However the caveat is that the conclusion is based on projected performance and manufacturers benchmarks!

Samsung-Exynos-5-Dual

When Apple released the iPhone 5 it didn’t contain a quad-core CPU as many people had expected, however Apple did claim that the new phone was up to twice as fast as its predecessor. The most likely reason that Apple could make such a claim is that its A6 CPU uses the Cortex-A15 architecture. With the recent release of Google’s new Chromebook, which is powered by Samsung’s Cortex-A15 based Exynos 5 Dual (Exynos 5250), the benchmarking gurus have now had a chance to really test the new architecture from ARM and the results are amazing.
