Samsung outs 'retina display' ARM chippery

2560 x 1600 graphics on a mobe, anyone?

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

World+Dog is drooling over Samsung's latest ARM chip, the dual-core Exynos 5250, announced this week.

What has got the saliva flowing? The 2GHz clock speed, a memory bandwidth of 12.8GB/s, DisplayPort support and the ability to pump out graphics at resolutions of up to 2560 x 1600.

The catch: the 32nm, Cortex A15-based chip won't be out in devices until the second half of 2012.

What else is out in H2 2012? That's right, Windows 8 tablets based on the ARM architecture. Just in time, eh, Samsung?

Microsoft could do with such a boost. Windows 8 will be arriving long after not only the iPad but also a raft of Android tablets have established themselves.

As market watcher Forrester Research noted yesterday, declining consumer interest in Windows tabs is going to make it harder for sellers to persuade them to opt for a Windows machine.

Smart chips from Samsung and suchlike will make their job less onerous. ®
