Quad core mali GPU doesn’t sound very promising… I hoped they would have opted for a gpu with a little more grunt, like the sgx 6 series or 544mp2 at least… I hope the gpu leak is wrong…
Actually the new Mali GPU are quite good, they’re not talking about those Mali-400 quad cores GPUs you know of.
Just wait and see, Samsung will use these new Mali GPUs too and I think Samsung certainly wants decent performance.
