How does some processor talk sound on this fine Thursday evening? That's precisely what we've got for you, as Samsung has offered up details on its new Exynos 5 Dual processor. As you might've surmised from the name, the Exynos 5 Dual is a 1.7GHz dual-core processor and is based on the ARM Cortex-A15. The Exynos 5 Dual is built with a 32nm High-K Metal Gate process and also features a quad-core Mali-T604 GPU. Samsung boasts that the Exynos 5 Dual can support a display with a resolution of WQXGA (2560x1600) and is also stereoscopic 3D-friendly. Some other noteworthy Exynos 5 Dual tidbits include a 30 percent drop in power consumption compared to its previous 45nm Exynos and included support for USB 3.0 (Host or Device).

So when might you be able to get your mitts on a device packing an Exynos 5 Dual? That's still up in the air right now, as Samsung hasn't named any specific hardware that'll be powered by it. However, we've heard rumblings that that Samsung is prepping an 11.6-inch tablet that features a 2560x1600 resolution display, which sounds like a nice fit for the Exynos 5 Dual. Now we just have to wait for Sammy to announce the slate to see if that's actually the case. Until then, you can dive into the nitty gritty details of the Exynos 5 Dual at the Samsung link below.
