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.

It's a whole new architecture so it's far from a speedbump, it's a new CPU architecture and a new GPU architecture. Apple themselves are pretty far from releasing a Cortex A15 core as of yet. A whole new SoC is a whole new SoC and certainly is far more newsworthy then a speedbump.
