Samsung Exynos 5422 Octa-core and Exynos 5260 Hexa-core

Posted by – March 6, 2014

Samsung releases the Exynos5422, their fastest yet Octa-core ARM Processor, with optimized HMP Heterogeneous Multi-processing support with all 8 cores working simultaneously at up to 2.1Ghz reaching something like 20 thousand on Antutu benchmark (which is a lot). The performance for ARM Chromebooks may be extremely high. The Exynos5422 may have more than double the CPU performance over the Exynos5250 of previous generation Chromebooks (according to some online benchmarks for the dual-core Exynos5250 in Nexus 10 compared with the Antutu number Samsung shows for their Octa core Exynos5422 Antutu result), this should provide for some extremely powerful new Samsung ARM Powered Chromebooks! Samsung also announced the 6-core Exynos5260 with 2 big ARM Cortex-A15 cores and 4 LITTLE ARM Cortex-A7 cores, a design that may feed well for the mid-range market perhaps also better for Android Smartphone usage scenarios while the Exynos5422 may be best on Chromebooks that may need higher burst performance. The Samsung Exynos5422 is going to ship in the newly announced $399 Samsung Chromebook 2 with a 13.3″ FHD display, 4GB RAM, 16GB Flash and an ultra-thin and light form factor for a laptop.
