Galaxy Note 10.1 Upgraded to a Quad-Core

The Last time we saw the Galaxy Note 10.1 is at Mobile World Congress 2012 on February in Barcelona. When the phone was first shown at Mobile World Congress 2012 it packed a dual-core exynos processor. Now Samsung wants the Exynos 4 Quad to power the Galaxy Note 10.1. However, the Exynos 4 Quad had a troubled birth as well, The first version did not yield chips capable of such performance, as Samsung Semiconductor was occupied with a prospect of new clients as well. With the new findings in order how to make quad-core operate at sufficient thermal limitations, Exynos 4412 was taped out in the final revision and brought a significant jump in performance. the performance rose a little but by a significant margin. When we saw the initial results using the test silicon, the performance was at the levels of Qualcomm Snapdragon S4. However, with the new silicon revision and the powerful Mali GPU (we expect T-604 based one, rather than the Mali-400MP) the performance skyrocketed. Vr-Zone stumbled on Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8000 on Rightware's Powerboard, one of largest databases of benchmarked mobile devices. The fastest score they've ever stumbled across was 37 which was set by the Snapdragon S4, but the new Exynos 4 Quad sets a new record by achieving 60. Furthermore, this level of performance belongs to the next-generation of devices, rather than the present. Devices which packs these chips are considered future chips. As such, we expect that GT-i9300 (Samsung Galaxy SIII) and GT-N8000 (Galaxy Note 10.1) will significantly increase the bar among numerous competitors, like ASUS's (Nvidia Tegra powered) Transformer pads and Apple's next iPad refresh.
