New version of Exynos 5 Octa SoC with mark 5420, based on six-core Mali-T628 M6 chip and contains four ARM Cortex-A15 cores running at 1.8 GHz, and four 1.3 GHz Cortex-A7s in ARM big.LITTLE configuration. Samsung claims that the new SoC delivers improved optimization of the energy consumption by 20% compared to the previous generation, and can provide twice as better graphics.

Dual-channel LPDDR3 memory running at speeds of 933 MHz provides memory bandwidth of 14.9 Gbps, which allows full HD WiFi display support. The system also has integrated solution for image compression that enables energy efficiency during loading, and there is support for OpenGL ES 3.0 and Open CL Full Profile 1.1, which, as they say, "enables the horsepower needed in multi-layer rendering of high-end, complex gaming scenarios, post-processing and sharing of photos and video, as well as general high-function multi-tasking operations."

In their media statement Samsung also claims that the graphics of the new SoC is powerful enough to run high-performance screens at WQXGA (2500 x 1600 pixels) resolution. And finally, Samsung says that the new processor includes "a variety of full HD 60 frames per second video hardware codec engines for 1080p video recording and playback." The statement does not specify which devices should first get a new SoC's, but samples of chips are already shipped to Samsung partners, and mass production will begin in August this year.
