All hail the eight cores! Samsung announces Exynos 5 Octa mobile processor
If you lost interest in smartphone and tablet chipsets after they passed the dual-core stage, maybe the newest Samsung announcement will bring it back, as it has not two or four, but a full eight processor cores, aptly named the Exynos 5 Octa.

The latest member of the 5-series has been done with a 28nm process, and frugality/performance ratio in mind, as the chief of Samsung Electronics Stephen Woo admitted that the task to up performance while decreasing power consumption has been the one bothering him, and keeping him awake at night.

With Exynos 5 Octa, Samsung thinks it has cracked that code, and demonstrated on stage how you can search for restaurants and watch an HD movie at the same time, as well as some 3D gaming with Need for Speed: Most Wanted chosen as the demo. "Level of pure processing power, never seen before in mobile devices" and "more detailed damage to cards, then ever before" were just a few of the superlatives thrown at Exynos 5 Octa during gaming.

Samsung's peeps said that the new Exynos has twice the graphics performance of anything currently on the market, but it is also very frugal, for up to 70% power savings. It's built around ARM's big.LITTLE concept, with a mix of frugal Cortex-A7 cores for the mundane tasks, and Cortex-A15 ones for the heavy lifting.

They showed a chart with performance/power consumption ratios, and, needless to say, the Exynos 5 Octa was top dog there, so we can't wait to see this buddy in phones and tablets, pitted against Tegra 4, and Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 600 and 800 families. Samsung also mentioned that the road ahead includes plans for 20nm, 14nm and even 10nm mobile chipsets, so the good news is far from over in that department.

Sounds good. I cant imagine wanting such a powerful processor on a phone though. Unless it was purely for portable gaming, stick the cpu in a phone with HDMI out and a Bluetooth control pad.

Well with the Cortex A7 cores kicking in when not much power is required it should be fine in a phone.

If this chip goes into the GS4 and Note3 then Samsung has pretty much just blown very single one of its competitors (chip and phone makers alike) out the water, as this chip in graphics alone has even the best Snapdragon beat.

It's going to be a very interesting year ahead it seems.

Just asking, are smoking weed or something

CPU with more power is not definition blowing................What they need is better good quality screen/Camera/Design and optimise's system overall, those are key functions what people need and wanna play it

Second,qualcom is miles ahead than Samsung in CPU technology and also for their socket design.

quality screen/Camera/Design and optimise's system overall

Samsung have lead the way in Android in pretty much all of these, especially System optimization, they still remain the only Android maker capable making a consistantly smooth, fast yet efficient smartphone, the S3 and Note2 both perfect examples of power, fluidity and excellent battery life, with 50h and 69h respectively in GSMArenas tests.

Exynos vs. Qualcomm phones year after year say otherwise but go on...

Samsung are not the ONLY manufacturer who have made a smooth and fluid smartphone. The Note 2 is not a smartphone it's the size of a tv set

Than you must have a small tv Sean

The Note is as Tsepz_GP says, it is fluid and has exellent batterylife. The phones never slow down and the camera is the fastest I have ever had on a phone and the voice-activation of it is perfect imo

Never said it was a bad phone I just nearly mentioning that there is too many phones now the size of tv's

Posted by randomuser
It's a bit misleading. This isn't actually 8 core. It's still quad core. Quad core + Quad Core. All 8 cores do not perform together, only 4 cores.

Exactly, and this is the beauty of Samsung Androids, I was watching a Hands-On of the Xperia Z yesterday, and I noticed the typical Sony UI stuttering and lag, same sort that I have seen in Xperia S, Xperia T, Arc etc...and I was just so put off, picked up my GS3 and I am just amazed at how Samsung manages to create such a fast and smooth UI, their software and hardware optimization is just incredible, the other day I showed a friend of mine the Multi-view multitasking of the S3 and on top of that I did pop-up video, phone continued to run without a hitch, he was just amazed, now just imagine the S4 and Note3 if they use this Exynos 5 Octa??? we are in for a treat this year.
