Samsung Exynos 5250 Dual
The Samsung Exynos 5 Dual (also called Exynos 5250) is a system on a chip (SoC) for tablets. It was introduced in 2012 (first in the Google Nexus 10 tablet) and features two Cortex-A15 cores, which are clocked at 1.7 GHz. Compared to the commonly used Cortex-A9 architecture, the A15 cores offer an about 50 percent higher per MHz performance, which makes the Exynos 5250 one of the fastest ARM SoCs of 2012. In combination with its high clock speed, the Exynos even outperforms quad-core SoCs like Nvidia's Tegra 3. The memory controller supports LPDDR3 with a maximum of two 32-bit channels and 800 MHz clock speed, resulting in a bandwidth of up to 12.8 GB/s.
The GPU is licensed by ARM and called Mali-T604. The Exynos 5250 integrates the MP4 model, which offers a total of 4 GPU cores clocked at 533 MHz (72.5 GFLOPS). The Mail T604 supports OpenGL ES 3.0, OpenCL 1.1 and DirectX 11 and offers a performance just slightly below the PowerVR SGX554MP4 found in Apple's A6X SoC. Accordingly, typical Android games (2013) can be played fluently even at very high resolutions like 2.560 x 1.600 pixels. Furthermore, a multi-format 1080p 60 fps video codec engine and an 8 MP 30 fps Embedded ISP are integrated.
Due to the high performance, the power consumption of the SoC is also relatively high. The maximum power consumption peaks at about 4 to 8 watts, so the Exynos 5250 can only be used in large tablets.
