Exynos 5 dual CPU for Tablets

Samsung has some real horse-power up its sleeves. Recently Samsung has announced its Exynos 5 dual CPU for tablets with the aim to provide 'much more power to tablets' and to provide support for larger screen resolutions.

Samsung revealed that Exynos 5 dual has a GPU which is capable of supporting a WQXGA display solution  which transcends to an almost unbelievable and jaw-dropping 2560X1600 pixels. This means Exynos 5 dual even beats Apple's new I-pad which has a retina display of 2048X1536 pixels.

If pixels alone don't impress you, then a Cortex-A15 dual core processor which clocks at 1.7 GHZ, supports 1080p, 60fps video decoding, the "best 3D graphics performance" and high-speed interfaces such as USB 3.0 and SATA3 might catch your eye.

What will consumers (In other words, 'we') would gain from this? With such a powerful CPU, Samsung can safely say that it is now capable of raising the standard of its next-generation Galaxy Tabs and can compete with Apple's next I-pad (Who knows, they might just beat Apple.) The performance-rich dual core processor 
will also ensure that 3D, console-quality gaming takes another step forward on tablets. Full HD video support is another feature that would ensure improved user experience.

While there no word said by Samsung about when users would see the new CPU in action, ARM has been kind enough to give a hint that a new Samsung tablet with Exynos 5 processor inside might show up in the market before the 2012 comes to an end.
