The heart of Google and Samsung's new Nexus 10 Tablet is the Exynos 5250 with Mali T604 GPU.  This processor is a 'next generation' System on a Chip based on ARM's Cortext A-15 chip architecture.  The 5250 is designed to compete with Qualcomm's S4 'Krait' chip architecture and in some ways is even more powerful.  The 5250 is manufactured by Samsung and it is this fabrication ability that enables the company to keep the cost of the Nexus 10 reasonable despite it being a next generation chip. 

Some of the most important features of the newly unveiled Exynos 5250 are:

- Dual-core 1.7 Ghz Cortex A15 CPU
- Mali T604 GPU
- OpenGL ES 3.0
- OpenCL 1.1 full profile
- Support for WXQGA displays (2560 x 1600)
- Wi-Fi display support (Miracast)
- 12.8 GB/s memory bandwidth with 2 port 800 Mhz LPDDR3 RAM support
- 1080p 60 FPS video performance and VP8 codec decoder
- USB 3.0 support

Now not all of the above features may be included in the Nexus 10 but a great deal of them are.  Besides the obvious record breaking 2560 x 1600 display support the inclusion of Wi-Fi display support including the 'Miracast' standard will enable you to stream video from your Nexus 10 right to your 'Miracast' compatible HDTV.

ARM Holdings, the designers of ARM chips in most mobile devices today designed both the 5250 processor and the Mali-T604 GPU so they are uniquely integrated to achieve even faster performance.  Not only that but ARM only changes its GPU chip architecture about once every 5 years and the Mali-T604 is the first of this new generation offering at least 2x performance gains over previous generation chips.  It is this performance that enables it to power the graphics of the 2560 x 1600 display with 12.8 GB/s memory bandwidth compared to 6.4 GB/s bandwidth required for 1280 x 800 displays.   

We'll be delving further into some of the Cortex-A15 based Exynos 5250 and Mali T-604 GPU in further articles but to suffice to say that if you want the absolute state of the art in tablet chip processing power the Nexus 10 is the top of the heap for now.
