Google-Nexus-Tablet

For more than half a year, we’ve had more than enough Galaxy S3 rumors. Some of them were pretty crazy, like the 1080p screen, while others were predictable (the quad core Exynos 4412... chip). Samsung delivered some of the more predictable ones, while  it failed to hit the target on others (Pentile screen), and also disappointed some people with the design and build quality. These...

We’ve known about the Exynos 5250 for a while now, thanks to other rumors. As such, none of the specs leaked from the slideshow captured by SemiAccurate are breaking news, but it’s... certainly nice to get confirmation, not just for the Cortex A15 CPU, but also for the Mali T604 MP4 GPU and the LPDDR3 1600 MHz RAM that this chip supports.

The Exynos 5 will have a dual-core 2 G...

Intel Atom processor z2460

The Intel Atom “Medfield” chip will finally be available in some smartphones this year, after Intel promised for at least 3 years that they would enter the smartphone market. Unfortunately... for Intel, I think they are just rushing in with Medfield, because I don’t think it’s competitive enough in power consumption, and it’s quickly losing the performance game, too. That’s w...

s4-vs-tegra3

Dual core or quad core? Which should you pick? If the decision was that simple, I’m sure most people would just go with the quad core chip. But what if the dual core chip this time is... more powerful than the quad core one? From what we’ve seen in the benchmarks so far, it seems that the S4 beats the quad core Tegra 3 in most situations, except in some browsing tests and graph...

Galaxy-S-III-mock-up-e1327458690615

Remember that just around the time when the Galaxy S 2 was being launched in US, there were rumors about the Galaxy S3 launching as soon Q1 2012? Some people were upset about it arriving so... early, especially Americans who just got theirs, while others were wondering if that would even be possible.

Technically, I think it’s possible for a true next-gen device to replace the...

samsung-exynos-5250

Last November Samsung said they were working on a dual core 2 Ghz Cortex A15 chip called Exynos 5250.  A dual core 2 Ghz Cortex A15 chip should be at least 2.5x as powerful as the current dual... core 1.2 Ghz Cortex A9 chip in Galaxy S 2. And that’s a difference that you will feel in real world performance, unlike with current quad core chips, where you might feel an improvement in performa...
