Samsung and ARM are continuing to underline the Heterogeneous Multi Processing (HMP) capabilities of the Exynos 5420 processor by releasing a set of videos which show how the different cores are used under different workload scenarios.
Samsung has officially confirmed that the Exynos Octa 5420 used in the Galaxy Note 3 supports heterogeneous multi-processing (HMP). This means that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will be the first true eight core device available to the general public.
Sam Mobile leaked the list of countries and carriers that will carry the Exynos 5420 and Snapdragon 800 versions of the Note 3. All variants will feature 3GB of RAM.
One of the of the big improvements brought by Samsung’s new Exynos 5 Octa (5420) SoC is a brand new six-core Mali T-628 GPU. The advance in graphics performance over last year’s chips is clearly visible in a video comparison.
Samsung announced the Exynos 5420, a refresh of the Exynos 5 Octa chip that powers some models of the Galaxy S4. The new, faster chip might be free of the bug that crippled the first Exynos 5 Octa.
