Following the teaser last week, Samsung has finally unveiled the recent Exynos 5 Octa chip and shared some more details about it.

The recent Exynos 5 Octa 5420, which is likely to power the Samsung Galaxy Note III, is retaining its ARM big.LITTLE architecture with four Cortex A15 and Cortex A7 cores. Thanks to a boost in the clock speeds of both quartets of Central Processing Units (CPU) cores, the recent Exynos 5 Octa packs 20% more punch than its predecessor. The quad Cortex A15 now run at up to 1.8GHz, as opposed to 1.6Giga Hertz (GHz) in the 5410 version, while the Cortex A7 can now operate at 1.3GHz, compared to 1.2Giga Hertz (GHz) in the previous version.

Samsung has opted out of using Imagination's PowerVRSGX544MP3 graphics of its recent gen Octa chip and has decided to utilize the 6-core ARM Mali-T628 MP6. The memory is updated as well and while its the same dual-channel 32-bit LPDDR configuration it can now support up to 1866Mega Hertz (MHz) clock speed. This results in a maximum bandwidth of 14.9Gbps.

As a result of this boost in the memory, the recent Exynos 5 Octa comes with full HD Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) display support. As with any recent generation chip, Samsung has made improvements in the energy department and the 5420 chip is more efficient when used on high-resolution display devices, improving battery life.

Samsung says the Exynos 5 Octa 5420 is now sampling and will enter mass production in August. That means the chipset will be ready just in time for the Galaxy Note III announcement, which should happen on September 4.
