We just saw the TI OMAP 5 show off great performance in a quick clip provided by Texas Instruments. Now we've got a little tease from Samsung that they'll be showing off their Exynos 4412 quad-core ARM Cortex-A9's at MWC. They are built on an improved 32nm process to make the new chip faster and retain better battery life.
The chip will be an estimated 26 percent faster and simultaneously use 34-50 percent less power. Power consumption is reduced because each core can be independently shut down when not in use. It can be clocked from 200MHz to 1.5GHz and includes four ARM Mali graphics cores. The Exynos 4412 can supposedly power a built-in projector as well as a 1080p 3D display, so maybe we'll see these demonstrated at MWC.
It will be up against the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, so hopefully we see some great performance. The Exynos 5250 also implements dual Cortex-A15 cores, so the OMAP 5 has some competition as well. We wouldn't want the Samsung Galaxy S III to finally get here and not live up to its expectations, would we?
