The Exynos 5 Octa 5420 has finally gone official with an announcement made by Samsung. The chipset has brought forward expected changes and is well in line to debut with the Galaxy Note 3 in September. The chipset packs the same CPU architecture with four ARM Cortex A7 cores and Cortex A15 cores respectively. The GPU is now the Mali-T628 MP6 (6 core) as we speculated yesterday. Samsung will start mass producing the new chipset from August. However we’re not sure if the chipset will be used in the American variants of the smartphone.
The Exynos 5 Octa will also mark the arrival of better battery management, meaning lower power consumption. Also the memory module can now support clock speeds of up to 1866 MHz. It is finally good to see the new Exynos chipset arrive along with all the upgrades. Now all eyes will be set on the Galaxy Note 3 launch in early September, right before the IFA event kicks of.
