Samsung recently revealed details of the Exynos 5 Dual, a new mobile processor for smartphones and tablets. The Exynos 5 Dual is a system-on-a-chip and is based on a 32nm process for power efficiency. It runs two Cortex A15 processors at 1.7GHz per core and supports WQXGA (2560 x 1600) displays, 1080p video capture at 60 frames per second, advanced 3D graphics, USB 3.0, and SATA3. The Exynos 5 Dual integrates the eDP controller and PHY transceiver in order to further boost power efficiency (down 30% from previous-gen chips), reduce the size of the SoC, and reduce the bill of materials. Samsung believes the Exynos 5 Dual will be ideal for multimedia smartphones and tablets. Samsung didn't specify when the chip would be ready for production.

So if I'm reading this right...

"two Cortex A15 processors at 1.7GHz per core" so as the Exynos 5 is a quad core, this means the Exynos 5 Dual is eight cores and each core runs at 1.7 GHz?

Holy battery eating technology Batman!
Wait wait...that's the Exynos 4 which is a quad core. So the Exynos 5 Dual is only a dual core.
