Despite we are only getting unconfirmed rumors and leaks everywhere, we have some good news. It has been confirmed that Samsung Galaxy III will be powered by Samsung’s very own 32nm 1.4GHz quad core processors which enables not only faster processing powers, but also consumes less energy. Samsung recently revealed that the manufacturing of Exynos 4 Quad processor on-going and will be released into the next Galaxy smartphone that will be unveiled in May.
Attributing to its High-K Metal Gate (HKMG) low power technology, the latest Exynos 4 Quad is 2 times faster and yet produces 20% efficient energy savings compared to its predecessor, the 45nm process-based Exynos 4 Dual. Similar to all multi-core processors,Exynos 4 Quad processor improvement in performance and multitasking. In addition, Samsung implemented hot-plug functional to support on-off switching for each core as well as per-core dynamic voltage and frequency scaling (DVFS). This produces incredible reduction in power consumption by applying different levels of voltage and frequency when handling different tasks.
“The quad-core processor offers phenomenal multitasking abilities surpassing any single or dual application processor. Since all the cores must share a single battery, the power management and efficiency in the limited battery capacity are indispensable for mobile computing devices. Given the diverse functionalities consumers are demanding from their mobile devices today, the Exynos 4 Quad meets those high-performance needs while keeping power consumption very low.” – Taehoon Kim, Vice President of System LSI Marketing, Device Solutions, Samsung Electronics.
