Samsung Galaxy S5 Could be Powered By Exynos 5430 64-Bit “True” Octa-Core Processor
Apart from the recent speculation that Samsung will announce the Galaxy S5 on January and release it on February; analysts are also expecting that the smartphone will be equipped with a 64-it version of the Samsung Exynos 5 Octa 5430 chipset. Sources suggest it would be driven by a “true” octa-core processor, which is consisted of eight cores that can run simultaneously when needed.
Based on ARM’s big.LITTLE architecture, the company’s current Exynos 5410 octa-core chipset only allows four cores to operate at one time. JK Shin, the leading man in Samsung Mobile, has confirmed that the company is developing a 64-bit chip. It may not be out to the general public in the shortest time; but we can be sure that Samsung would be heading out to the 64-bit territory.
Sources in South Korea revealed that the chip is already in the final development stages. It could be based on ARM’s newer Cortex A50 architecture. To be precise, Exynos 5430 could be consisted of the energy efficient Cortex A53 quad-core package and the more powerful Cortex A57 quad-core package. The chip would also be used on Samsung’s new tablet in 2014, probably those from the Note tablet family.
