Samsung Unveils Octa-core Exynos 5422 and Hexa-core Exynos 5260 Chipset [MWC 2014]Samsung today announced two new Exynos processors, the octa-core Exynos 5422 and the hexa-core Exynos 5260 at the Mobile World Congress 2014. These two new Exynos processors are designed to provide ultimate display support, longer battery life and wider applications support.

Samsung’s Exynos 5422 is an octa-core chipset that has the same architecture as the Exynos 5420, and is equipped with eight cores: four big cores i.e the ARM Cortex A15 clocked up to 1.2GHz for heavy loads and four small cores i.e. ARM Cortex A7 clocked up to 1.5Ghz for lighter jobs. According to Samsung’s claim, the Exynos 5422 chipset delivers up to 34 percent higher performance than its other Exynos Octa models. The chipset features a LITTLE HMP (Heterogeneous Multi Processing) technology to offer optimum performance for any given task.

To support high-resolution displays requiring a higher rate of data calculation and bandwidth, such as WQHD (2560 x 1440) and WQXGA (2560 x 1600), Samsung has adopted new solutions with proprietary mobile image compression (MIC) and adaptive hibernation technology.MIC compresses display data into half to minimize memory bandwidth requirement and uses only four MIPI lanes. The Exynos 5422 also provides an outstanding multimedia experience through advanced Multi Format Codec (MFC) that supports 4K UHD resolution.

Samsung’s Exynos 5260 chipset is a hexa-core chipset especially designed to improve optimal performance and power efficiency and increase mid to high-end mobile market.  The Exynos 5260 has six CPU cores:  two ARM Cortex A15 cores clocked up to 1.7GHz and four ARM Cortex A15 cores clocked up to 1.3GHz. Like Exynos 5442, the Exynos 5260 also adopts the LITTLE HMP technology.

According to Samsung’s claim, the Exynos 5260 chipset delivers up to 42 percent higher performance than its other Exynos 5 Dual models. The Exynos 5260 chipset comes with an embedded Display Port (eDP) interface and memory bandwidth supporting up to 12.8GB/s and also supports WQXGA with 2560 x 1600 display resolution.

The two new chipset are scheduled for mass production in the first quarter of 2014 and it seems the two chips will really boost the power of mobile devices. Stay tuned for more updates.
