Exynos 5420 adopts the Cortex-A15 core(quad), which is 40% DMIPS higher than the CortexA9 core and targets 1.8GHz speed. It also incorporates the Cortex-A7 core(quad) which enables energy efficient computing for less intensive tasks Exynos 5420 provides 14.9GB/s memory bandwidth for heavy traffic operations such as 1080p video en/decoding, 3D graphics display and high resolution image signal processing with WQXGA Display. The application processor supports dynamic virtual address mapping aiding software engineers to fully utilize the memory resources easily.
Exynos 5420 provides the best 3D graphics performance with wide range of APIs such as OpenGHL ES1.1/2.0 and 3.0, OpenVG1.0.1. Exynos 5420's 3D core's universal scalable Shader engine supports the feature sets in Microsoft VS5.0 and PS5.0. Superior 3D performance fully supports WQXGA display. Exynos5420 supports not only low power eDP but also Panel-Self-Refresh(PSR) to make a low power system. The native dual display, in particular, support WQXGA resolution for the main LCD display and 1080p 60fps HDTV display through HDMI, simultaneously. Separate post processing pipeline enables Exynos 5420 to make real display scenario.
