Samsung announced the production of its Dual-Core Exynos Mobile Chip
Samsung today that it will start the production next month of its upcoming Dual-Core Exynos Mobile Chip. With Nvidia kicking anyone’s ass with its Tegra 2 it is not surprising that a company like Samsung is willing to jump into this very lucrative market as soon as possible.
The first chip that Samsung will propose is the so called “Orion” also know as Exynos 4120, and will soon be implemented in many future mobile devices made by Samsung.
“Application processors for the mobile market are one of the flagship products in our semiconductor business,” saidSeh-Woong Jeong, executive vice president of marketing, System LSI Division, Samsung Electronics. “We are excited to introduce the brand name of Exynos for Samsung’s application processor family. As consumers demand more from their mobile products, Samsung’s Exynos chips will be the power inside enabling the coolest HD multi-media features with even longer battery life.”
Exynos associates Samsung’s “smart and green” strategy adopted by its semiconductor devices and solutions developed specifically to support the stringent performance and power requirements of mobile devices. Smart refers to high-performance aspect and Green represents low power features of Samsung’s application processors. Exynos originates from the Greek awords smart (exypnos) and green (prasinos).
The new naming system will be first applied to the dual core processor codenamed Orion, which was announced in September 2010. Carrying the name Exynos 4210, Samsung’s powerful 1GHz dual-core application processor is scheduled for production next month.
