Samsung Exynos 5 Octa GPU Details Surface

Samsung made up for the lack of devices at CES 2013 by announcing its future mobile processor, the Exynos 5 Octa which is packing eight cores. While details about the cores themselves were unveiled (two quad-core 28nm pairs, one A15 running at 1.8GHz and a power-efficient 1.2GHz quad-core A7), not much was said about the GPU.

Some speculated that the GPU might be the same as the one found inside the Exynos 5 Dual chip, namely an ARM Mali-T604 GPU. However, this is not the case, as AnandTech managed to find out; instead, the Exynos 5 Octa will pack almost the same GPU that powered Apple’s iPad 3, with a twist. It’s the PowerVR SGX 544 “with the addition of DirectX 10 class texturing hardware and 2x faster triangle setup”.

This means that performance-wise the Exynos 5 Octa should perform anywhere between the Apple iPad 3 and the Apple iPad 4 with its PowerVR SGX 554 GPU.

Many are expecting Samsung to deliver the upcoming Galaxy S IV with the new Exynos 5 Octa chip on-board. We still have a bit of waiting to do until we hear anything official though!
