Exynos 4412 can be the first quad-core SoC from Samsung


Looks like the first details on Samsung’s Exynos Quad-core System-on-Chip (SoC) have trickled out. Traces of an upcoming Exynos 4412 supporting quad-core have been found on the Kernel Git page. Samsung is apparently testing the chip and has added support for the SoC on the development boards.

According to it, Exynos 4412 is very similar to the recently announced Exynos 4212 and is based on ARM Cortex A9 with four CPU cores. The clock speed is apparently the same as Exynos 4212, which is 1.5GHz.

We don’t have any word on the release but it seems Samsung will soon have something to compete with Nvidia’s Tegra 3 platform.

Samsung is also working on the next-gen Exynos based on ARM Cortex A15 that will support ARM’s big.LITTLE processing.

    The A15 based Exynos is going to eat Tegra’s breakfast, steal their cake and girlfriend, and leave them in the dust, assuming it uses one of the newer Mali GPUs.

      Yes, if you meant Tegra3. But the race is to use 20nm node process which would really make the ideal A15 based chip. Be aware that Qualcomm Krait is also due out pretty soon, so there are choices.
      It seems Samsung is the only manufacturer with all the bits from cpu,ram,asic,flash, display except battery.
