The Exynos 9825 chip that runs on the Note 10 offers features that are almost completely identical to those of the chip God-Exynos 9820 which we already knew at the beginning of the year - but it is based on new production technology and definitely guarantees that you can take over the field in the coming years
We did not expect significant news from models Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 Plus As for their processing power, because we have traditionally become accustomed to seeing these smart devices use very similar or identical chips to those of the Galaxy S models from that year launched a few months earlier - but the current incarnation from home סמסונג May be a little different, and bring with it a line that will become especially significant down the road.
The day before the announcement The Note 10 models themselves We got a much more modest official announcement for chip The fresh Exynos 9825 - which is the first commercial product based on the production process of סמסונג 7 nm, 7LPP, which includes initial use of theExtreme The promising and intriguing Ultra Violet.
The Exynos 9825 paper is almost completely identical to the Exynos 9820 chip which starred on the various Galaxy S10 models starting March this year, with two advanced M4 advanced processing cores under dedicated development. סמסונג Itself reaching 2.73GHz frequency (unchanged), another pair of powerful Cortex A75 cores up to 2.4GHz frequency (tiny increase vs. 2.31GHz frequency atExynos 9820) and four Cortex A55 cores at 1.95GHz (unchanged) - all with the addition of a graphical Mali-G76MP12 core that also did not undergo any change.
The graphics core operated at frequencies up to 708MHz on the chipsetsExynos 9820, and although we still do not know the maximum working frequency inExynos 9825 can be estimated with caution that there will be no formidable leap here but a moderate (if any) addition that will improve the capabilities by a single percentage, similar to the power ratio in the general processing cores. So why is the note chip of the Note 10 and Note 10 Plus important and unique anyway?
Created the Exynos 9820 סמסונג In its 8-nanometer manufacturing process, initially introduced as the second-generation 10-nanometer production but eventually changed its name as part of a sort of marketing war of chipmakers designed to highlight the relentless technological development in the field - and the Exynos 9825 is the first commercial chip created In the second generation of the production process from home סמסונג 7 nm (the first generation has not ripened for commercial use so far, and may never ripen for it) which makes its first use of innovative 13.5 nm light sources during part of the manufacturing process.
Modern chip manufacturing processes include, among other things, the use of tiny and special masks on a silicon substrate and the activation of a light source to create the necessary changes in the material to function as tiny transistors - and so far the most recent use was 193 nm (Deep Ultra Violet - DUV). Using more and more "tricks" to allow the creation of elements of only a few tens of nanometers on the silicon substrate in question.
Switching to only 13.5 nm wavelength advanced light source can significantly simplify and accelerate the modern and future production processes in the market, as well as deliver significantly higher accuracy to deliver better performance with low leakage currents.
Samsung is the first in the market to successfully integrate the technologyEUV In the commercial chip production line, and despite the fact that the product itself is not completely new but has actually undergone a "conversion" from a previous production process, this is an important development that comes after many years of delay - early estimates predicted us beyond usingEUV Even in the production processes at 14 nm and 10 nm, which did not happen in the end due to the fact that the capacity was simply not ripe for proper mass operation.
It will certainly be interesting to discover, very soon, the possible improvements that the Exynos 9825 hides, and the Note 10 devices in general, below the surface - but even if we do not get far-reaching changes it is worth noting the importance of the experience and rubbing of סמסונג And other technology makers, before learning how to use all of its capabilities and benefits and begin transferring them to consumers and users as well.
