Samsung Dual Core Orion CPU is closing in

November 15, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

Samsung announced their 1 GHz dual core CPU in September and it seems right now, it is getting closer. Engadget has some time with this at the ARM technology conference. It’s running Linux and Android 2.2.  The development boards were a bit buggy, but one of Engadget’s pictures shows a pretty nice render as part of the benchmark suite Samsung was using to show off the CPU paired with the Mali 400 GPU. Still, this is evidence that soon a dual core smartphone will come to the market.
