SlashGear 101: The Samsung Exynos 5 Octa Processor

When you're getting to know the 8 CPU cores of the Samsung Exynos 5 Octa SoC, you'll first want to understand that they absolutely do not work the same way as multi-core mobile processors have in the past. While the Exynos 5 Octa does have 8 CPU cores, they're never being used all at once. Instead you've got 2 distinct pairs of 4 CPU cores, four of them "big", the other four "LITTLE". The Exynos 5 Octa SoC works with what's called big.LITTLE architecture, this term coming from the British processor company ARM.

Samsung Galaxy S4 specifications tease biggest launch in company history

This week we're seeing more specification theories, leaks, and downright confirmations coming for the Samsung Galaxy S IV (or S4 if you prefer) than this device's imminent reveal would suggest. The big Samsung "Be Ready 4 The Next Galaxy" invites have been dropped and note a March 14th, 2013 event to be held in Times Square, New York City - if that's not a massive venue, we don't know what is.

Hyundai T7 tablet baffles with quad-core Exynos for impossibly low price

Today's most mysterious combination of components to hit the mobile universe must be no less than the Hyundai T7 tablet, revealed with a Samsung Exynos 4 quad-core processor and a 7-inch display for just $166 USD. While at that price we're certainly not confident this machine is going to run, it certainly does look enticing with a 1280 x 800 pixel display across 7 inches and an HDMI port out for connectivity with your HDTV.

Samsung and Apple one-brand manufacturing puts competition on notice

Samsung and Apple one-brand manufacturing puts competition on notice

This week it's been made clear - or perhaps just clearer than ever before - that a company able to manufacture its own device components is a company that will thrive. According to the readouts from Gartner showing 2012's top consumers in the semiconductor universe specifically, Samsung and Apple are out in front of the pack - by a significant margin. Semiconductors, mobile processors, and hardware from displays to memory cards are all a part of this puzzle, and as the two next entries on that list show with double-digit percentage drops show, it's not just Apple and Samsung that are floating upward here coming into 2013, it's mobile smart devices as a whole (and all their little bits and pieces).

Samsung Galaxy S IV appears in benchmarks with Exynos 5 OCTA

It's time for Exynos 5 - or at least that's what the benchmark results we're seeing today are saying - ready and willing to roll out on the Samsung Galaxy S IV this Spring. While it may be too much to hope for to see the Samsung Galaxy S IV at Mobile World Congress 2013 next month, we certainly can expect this device (Exynos 5 or no) to be appearing before the end of the Summer. Benchmark results here show the device to be working at 1.8Ghz clock speed per core with Android 4.2.1 right out the box.
