Samsung’s subsequent chip is a single sq. of silicone with a load of issues your cellular pc wants. To start out, the Exynos eight Octa 8890 (memorable) is predicated on 14nm FinFET tech, whose 3D design means higher energy efficiency. The corporate has customized-designed the CPU round a sixty four-bit ARM design, and can apparently give a 30 % enchancment in efficiency and ten % in energy effectivity in comparison with the Exynos 7 Octa it replaces. ARM’s Mali-T880 graphics processor additionally snuggles intently subsequent to a excessive-finish LTE modem. You realize, like Qualcomm does.
Whereas Samsung has folded LTE into its Exynos vary earlier than, that is the corporate’s first premium single-chip product – with Samsung’s greatest 4G modem alongside all that processing energy. With it being simply the only piece of silicon, this implies much less elements and fewer area taken up inside the gadget too, which Samsung says will permit “extra versatile design choices” — however that is in all probability reference the within of your subsequent Galaxy telephone, not the surface.
