Samsung’s Chromebook successor sees a 125% boost in performance

40 sec read

While Chromebooks might not necessarily be as popular compared to regular laptops, they are slowly starting to catch on, thanks largely to its affordable price tag and its simplistic use which is great for people that don’t need to do a lot on their computers. Now earlier this month, Samsung announced the Chromebook 2 series which is naturally an upgrade over its predecessor, but exactly how much of an upgrade can you expect? 

Folks looking to upgrade their current Samsung Chromebook to the Chromebook 2 — set to be released in April — will notice a big boost in performance, according to the latest from Samsung on the matter. That’s because the new Chromebook 2 is powered by the eight-core Exynos 5 Octa versus the dual-core CPU in the previous version. “Maximizing performance in tight power and thermal budgets is critical in today’s mobile devices. Compared to Exynos 5 Dual, our new Exynos 5 Octa application processors deliver up to 125 percent increase in computing and two times the multimedia performance. This enables designers to develop leading-edge products with significantly improved battery life.” —Dr. Kyushik Hong, vice president of System LSI marketing, Samsung Electronics
