Exynos 4412 – the man behind Samsung Galaxy S III

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I read an article posted saying this device was made using the same process as the Apple A5 rev 2 is made,

any major functional distinction over units having either one of these processors?

Exynos 4412 – the man behind Samsung Galaxy S III



The Apple A5 clocked at 1GHz can adjust its frequency to save battery life. It also includes an image signal processor unit that will do things such as face detection, white balance and automatic image stabilization and an earSmart for noise cancelling.

The Exynos 4412 on the other hand is clocked at 1.4GHz. It can also have the ability to switch off the whole core and scale both voltage and frequency. Samsung is claiming that it can go beyond 1.4GHz under scenarios that don’t utilize the four cores.

To conclude, Exynos has the upper hand when it comes to the clocking of the processor.

Hope you will find this helpful.

It is available in pebble blue, garnet red, sapphire black, la fleur, marble white, titanium grey, and amber brown colors. Here are the differences between the Samsung Exynos 4 Quad (4412) chipset and the Apple A5 (APL0498) chipset:

  • * Clock speed – Samsung Exynos 4 Quad (4412) chipset runs at 1.4 GHz while the Apple A5 (APL0498) chipset is at 1 GHz. The Samsung Exynos runs around forty percent (40%) higher clock speed than with the Apple A5.
  • * Manufacturing process – Samsung Exynos runs on a much newer manufacturing process at 32 nm while Apple A5 is at 45 nm. A newer manufacturing process offers a more powerful but cooler running processor.
  • * Number of cores – Samsung Exynos has four cores while Apple A5 has only two. Samsung Exynos offers twice as much core than Apple A5 which lets you run more apps at the same time.
  • * Number of threads – Samsung Exynos has four threads while Apple A5 has two. Samsung Exynos again offers twice as much thread than Apple A5.
  • * Age – Samsung Exynos, released on May 2012, is more than one year younger than Apple A5, released on March 2011.
