Samsung just announced its 2GHz Exynos 5250 System-on-Chip, a first to feature ARM's new dual-core Cortex-A15 processor said to be about twice as fast as the 1.5GHz Cortex-A9. The Exynos 5250 is based on 32nm manufacturing processes and brings vastly improved 3D graphics performance over existing Cortex-A9 systems — as much as 4x better in some cases — with support for stereoscopic 3D displays. It also supports WQXGA (2,560 x 1,600 pixel) resolutions making it ideal for next generation tablets. The new Exynos 5250 SoC is sampling now and will ship in quantity in the second quarter of 2012.
