Back in 1994, Samsung's cell-phone quality was so poor that its CEO burned cheap models in a company bonfire. Today, it has the Galaxy S smartphone series, which touts state-of-the-art specs (1 GHz processor, 5-megapixel camera). It has sold more than 10 million units since its June debut and has helped edge Samsung closer to unseating Nokia as the world's top mobile-phone maker.
The first of Samsung's new products announced at the keynote was the Exynos 5 Octa, the world's first mobile application processor to implement the ARM® big.LITTLE™ processing technology based on the Cortex™-A15 CPU. Following the Exynos 5Dual, which is already on board of market-leading products such as the Google Chromebook and Nexus 10, the successor is the newest addition to the Exynos family of application processors.
"The new Exynos 5 Octa introduces a whole new concept in processing architecture…designed for high-end smartphones and tablets," said Woo. "When you want multiple applications to perform at their best, you want the best application processor currently available—the Exynos 5 Octa." Green Memory Capabilities
As advanced processing power on mobile devices accelerates easier data creation by the masses, the mobile experience will increasingly become more dependent upon datacenters largely responsible for the proliferating data traffic. Growing in size and capacity, IT systems face challenges both in performance and power savings to secure sustainability moving forward. Memory devices, the main products for servers that make up these datacenters, can deliver substantial gains by adopting cutting-edge technology available from Samsung.
Woo pointed out that managing the power consumption in these datacenters have become crucial and that Samsung's green memory solutions with solid state drives (SSD) and advanced DRAM (dynamic random access memory)...
