Our favorite Korean semiconductor behemoth, Samsung, has just announced it’s newest and fastest version of the Exynos mobile processor. The 4212, a dual-core ARM Cortex A9 clocked at 1.5GHz. 4212 is built using a 32mn process using high-K metal gate technology that that Samsungs says makes it 30 percent more efficient and 25 percent faster and a 50 per cent increase in 3D graphics grunt over the previous Exynos – 4210 – chip. The 4210 was capable of many impressive feats, unfortunately its 3D abilities were hampered by the limits of its HDMI controller.
The new cpu gets version 1.4 and hence the freedom to run stereoscopic imagery at an impressive 70fps. The chips will be available in Q4 of this year. The chip comes too late for the Galaxy S II LTE but you can expect to see it in future super-smart-phones before too long.
The Exynos 4212 incorporates a rich portfolio of advanced codec accelerators that support digital still images, video recording and play-back at 1080p full-HD resolution, an image signal processor and an on-chip HDMI 1.4 interface. Read the full article »»»»

Seems the war betwixt behemoths, Apple and Samsung is just getting warmed up. According to sources Choi Gee-Sung’s Samsung Electronics is considering legal action in an attempt to halt the sale of Apples new iPhone. We have long cogitated that Apples core intention was to squeeze the mighty Samsung into submission, with it’s halting of sales on the Samsung Galaxy S Tablets and smartphones, it looked as though Apple may win the war by commercial default. NO manufacturer wants to hang on to 10′s of thousands of aging technology, hold hold up production lines while legalese wander in and out of courts. In a clever twist, it looks like the sleepy giant from Samsung Town has woken to what could be its strongest defense against patent and plagiarism claims. Read the full article »»»»
