Samsung Exynos 5 5250 SoC to Power WQXGA via eDP

Andrew Cunningham, Ars Technica:

While the A15 will increase the Exynos 5’s CPU power, its GPU might be more important as Android and Windows tablet manufacturers begin shipping Retina-esque displays to compete with the most recent iPad. The Mali-T604 is purpose-built for such devices: its maximum supported resolution is 2560×1600 (1280×800 doubled), and its 12.8GB/s theoretical memory bandwidth (the same as the A5X in the 2012 iPad) and 800MHz LPDDR3 RAM give it the memory bandwidth it needs to draw an image that large.

The block diagram in the Ars Technica article shows WQXGA (2560×1600 or 2560×1440) support through eDP and ‘FullHD’ (1920×1080) support through MIPI. If I were to guess, tablets with displays beyond 1920×1080 will increasingly adopt eDP.
