Samsung has sent out a press release about something we all love -- fast CPUs for mobile products. They will be changing the name of their product line to "Exynos" -- from the Greek smart (exypnos) and green (prasinos). This fits in well with their new strategy of producing powerful, yet energy efficient processors for mobile devices.
An interesting fact from the press release is that the chip we've all been calling the Orion will be the first chip with the new name, the Exynos 4210. It's a dual-core beast clocked at 1 GHz, scheduled to begin production next month. This puts a bit of a damper on hopes to see it in devices like the Galaxy S 2 soon, but if they can provide the performance they have hinted at yet keep power requirements low to conserve battery, it will be worth waiting for.
