Exynos 5250 SoC is based on Cortex-A15 architecture

The mobile market is heating up with consumers flocking to smartphones and tablets in record numbers. Samsung is looking to strengthen its position in these markets thanks to the new Exynos 5250 SoC which is the follow-up to the Exynos 4210 used in the popular Galaxy S II.
The Exynos 5250 is built using a 32nm low-power HKMG (High-K Metal Gate) process and is based on ARM Cortex A15 architecture. The dual-core Exynos 5250 operates at a speedy 2GHz and has twice the processing performance of 1.5GHz, dual-core Cortex A9 processors according to Samsung.

But CPU performance isn't the only thing that's been improved; Samsung says that the Exynos 5250 delivers four times greater graphics performance than Cortex A9 designs (memory bandwidth has doubled to 12.8GB/sec). It also adds in Stereoscopic 3D functionality and support for resolutions up to 2560x1600 (WQXGA).
The Samsung Exynos 5250 SoC is being targeted at the tablet market and will go into mass production during Q2 2012.

Q: What does Apple have to do with this?
A: Apple is destroying everyone in display resolution/ppi since iPhone4, and will likely do so again with iPad3.

"I guess we have Apple to thank for that."

I know at least one fanboy hasn't been paying attention. :)

For some time it was Apple that was being destroyed in resolution with people frequently defending it then when Apple finally woke up and have the iPhone4 a better screen suddenly Apple are the driving force behind resolution. I guess people just have very short or poor memories but suffice to say apple are not the driving force behind anything technological given they're a few years behind just as they are with displays. Their superb marketing does a great job making people think otherwise however.
