Samsung reportedly working on a true eight-core processor in wake of Exynos Octa criticism

Exynos_Octa

Not to say that Samsung’s Exynos Octa Processor was marketed as an eight-core processor, but it certainly came off that way, and was probably part of the marketing strategy for the tech-giant. (Only four cores of the processor can be active at once, meaning that it truly isn’t an eight-core processor.) However, the company seems to be working on a true octa-core processor which is scheduled for mass production later this year, and is expected to compete with MediaTek’s new octa-core CPU.

Samsung’s new CPU is also rumored to feature custom ARM cores, which could make this processor an absolute beast. Although we don’t have any other information on it at this time, we can expect to find it in the Samsung Galaxy S 5 next year. (Yes, we are already talking about it.) It’ll be cool to see what Samsung can do this time, as their past processors haven’t really panned out to what they could have been.

Samsung’s Exynos 5 Octa poses for its close-up

Samsung has taken to Twitter to show off its all-new eight core Exynos 5 Octa chipset. Other than the spectacular grid of spheres on the rear, there’s nothing really to see here. Although, if rumors hold true, we can expect to see the Korean manufacturer’s new Exynos 5 make its debut inside the Galaxy S IV later this year. For now, we’ll just stare and salivate.
