"The Exynos 5 Dual's nearest competitor should be Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 which is based on an ARM Cortex A9 architecture."
This is not correct. S4 is a Krait based SoC, which is similar to Cortex A15. The old Scorpion core was more like an A8 variant.
"However, even the Krait clocked at 1.7GHz will likely have a tough time competing with this 1.7GHz A15 speedster, especially in gaming and graphics."
How the Exynos 5 holds up to the S4 Pro isn't that clear IMO. We will have to wait on benchmarks for that. Krait core vs A15, memory bandwidth and Adreno 320 vs Mali T604 can all affect that outcome.
DTMan, typo on my part with the A9. I was running too fast to get this up. Correction made. And agreed on the performance projection. It was just a projection on my part, which remains to be seen but also why I have "time will tell" in there.
