    Samsung Unveils Their 8-Core 'Octa-Chip' Exynos 5 at CES


    So far this year, there have not been any huge or terribly exciting announcements at CES with a few exceptions (like NVIDIA's Tegra 4 and Project Shield). For the most part the products have been a small evolutionary step rather than a massive leap forward, although we are pretty impressed by how much evolution we have seen in the Huawei Ascend D2. However, coming down the pike this morning is a pretty impressive jump that comes directly from Samsung. They just announced their Exynos 5 "Octa-Chip" which is literally an eight-core mobile processor. Here's a quote with what we know so far:

    ARM big.LITTLE / Cortex A15 architecture. Designed to be a low powered, high performance mobile processor. Samsung claims that the 3D gaming performance is twice that of anything available at the moment. The demonstration given on stage by Dr Woo showed him searching for restaurants and watching an HD movie while singing the virtues of its fast performance and power sipping abilities. While we don't have full details at the moment, this sounds very much like the \chips that we heard about back in November that is expected to run dual quad-core set ups (1.8GHz A15 for the hard work, 1.2GHz A7 for lighter tasks) all on a 28-nanometer process.
    If you remember, previously we shared some intel regarding this new tech, and we even suggested it was likely to be launched at CES in 2013; however, even though it doesn't come as a surprise, it is still mightily impressive to see the big.LITTLE / Cortex A15 architecture finally come to light officially. We will keep watching this and update you with anymore details as they develop.

    Then Exynos 6, 7, 8 will appear in the future.
    Curious about how fast the phone will be with this processor.
