CES 2013 Keynote: Samsung Exynos 5 Octa & Flexible Display

Posted by – January 11, 2013

Samsung launches Exynos 5 Octa big.LITTLE (quad-A15 and quad-A7), Flexible OLED, Green LCD and Green Memory Solution at CES 2013. Here’s the full 1-hour keynote video:

    What a beast :),

    I hope they implement the full big.LITTLE specification, so you can use the 8 cores at the same time when you need max performance.

    WARNING WARNING POWER HOG APPROACHING WARNING!!!

  • Jml

    That won’t happen because both set of quad cores have completely different uses. One is for Max battery life and the other for Max performance.

  • Marc Guillot

    Wouldn’t be better to wait for a reviewed real product before say that.

    Big.LITTLE architecture has been designed specifically to save power. Give them some credit.

  • Marc Guillot

    Big.LITTLE has different operating modes, on MP mode all cores can run simultaneously.

  • Jml

    If the OS is able to run all of the cores at once and if the program or programs in question support eight cores.

  • Marc Guillot

    Yeah, that’s why I said that I hope they implement the full specification (Linux and Linux apps are more than capable to feed 8 cores). I want to see this SoC on an Ubuntu station.

    Talk about POWER HOG!!!!!! ARM Cortex A-15 is fast but it uses 2x power in order to get that fast.

  • Jml

    No because anandtech’s review of Google chrome book should tell you what you need to know. Dual core Arm cortex a-15 Chromebook uses 12 watts compared to the much older atom based Chromebook which one used 15 watts. ARM is supposed to be about low power usage but ARM Cortex A-15 broke that model INTO PIECES. If Intel plays their cards right ARM IS IN A LOT OF TROUBLE Not to mention MIPS which has the lower power usage I seen to date.

  • Jml

    Very few apps uses 8 cores let alone 4 cores. Most games 2 cores at most.
