    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.

    Now this is something to get excited about...maybe. Memory cache is also a big deal for horsepower, and so I wonder how these compare to laptop chips. Mainly one beef I have is noticeable lag on mobile devices over the same wifi as compared to a PC. Perhaps it's the website you are contacting taking longer to load a mobile version. I don't know, but clearly the chips are getting WAAAAYYYYYY ahead of the software.

    I wouldn't say its overkill. Sounds like speed coupled with efficiency to me. Besides when have computer geeks ever shouted 'slow those new CPU's down!'

    Samsung 8 core chip may be a sign of oem aiming to make tablets add powerful (if not more powerful) than laptop computers. Stats show people bought more tablets than laptops last year. And if companies like Asus can package dual boot tablets (windows and android) in a smaller convenient size this could be the direction technology goes for 2013. We are not too far off from seeing powerful gaming tablets as well.

    Don't get ahead of yourself, these mobile chips are a LONG way from matching x64 performance.

    That's my question. I get excited when I hear "8 core, 2ghz" but how does that really compare to the PC chips?

    I think it is a matter of time. We are seeing more chip manufacturers throw their hat in the ring. Do I think we will see a tablet match the power of like an alienware...no not yet but as more demand shift toward tablets you will see a company (or companies) attempt to bring a power close to that to the tablet game.
