Samsung Switching to Tegra-2 Powered Chips for Samsung Galaxy S II

March 4, 2011 - Written By alicia gomez

An Engadget source has confirmed that the second-generation Samsung Galaxy S II will be shipping another version with the NVIDIA Tegra-2 processor. Although the phone is not out right now, those that have already been manufactured will be coming out with Samsung’s own dual-core chip–Exynos. As to why the switch–Exynos might not be meeting the needs of the demand so NVIDIA will pick up the slack for Samsung. Even though both chips have similar performance, we still don’t know who will get the original Exynos chips, but most likely will be U.S. and the U.K.
