Google's upcoming "Daisy" Chromebook will reportedly use Samsung's ARM-based Exynos 5250 SoC. - ChromeStory reports that the rumored "Daisy" Chromebook will be powered by Samsung's upcoming ARM-based Exynos 5250 SoC.
Announced back in November 2011, this 32-nm chip is based on two ARM Cortex-A15 MPCores clocked at 2.0 GHz, and an ARM Mali-T604 MP4 GPU. So far the chip isn't due to go into mass production until 2Q12, meaning it may be a while before we see the ARM-based Chromebook arrive on the market. However, once it goes live, it will be the first Chrome OS device to actually run on an ARM-based chip.
Samsung reports that the Exynos can handle 14 billion instructions per second, making it twice as fast as the 1.5 GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 chip. The new chip will also reportedly deliver four times the 3D graphics performance than current solutions once "Daisy" hits the market, pushing displays up to WQXGA (2560 x 1600) resolution. The memory bandwidth itself will be an incredible 12.8 GB/s.
