Samsung has decided to change the method it calls its Exynos models. It started with the announcement of Exynos 980 that promised us a built-in 5G modem along with all other system components in the same chip Unified - and continues now with the unveiling of theExynos The innovative 990, which certainly manages to justify branding with improvements in almost every aspect and in every category.
Exynos 990 is based on the new generation of home production process סמסונג At 7 nm, using EUV (Extreme Ultra Violet) technology in some stages, and includes a similar general structure with eight processing cores divided into three clusters: a pair of cores in a new Exynos M5 architecture from a dedicated development of סמסונג With a promise of up to 20 percent performance improvement over the coreExynos M4 of the chipsExynos 9820 andExynos 9825, a pair of Cortex A76 architecture-based cores is updated and four more economical cores in the familiar Cortex A55 architecture.
The built-in graphical core of Exynos 990 will be the Mali-G77MP11 sample, the first in the market based on the fresh architecture announced by the company ARM Just a few days ago, the promise here is also to improve by about 20 percent of maximum performance over the Mali-G76MP12 core in the company's previous flagship chips, which operated its most advanced devices in 2019.
Even larger lines come with first-of-its-kind support for LPDDR5 memories, with an effective frequency of 2,750MHz (or 5,500MT / s) - which can provide about a 25 percent improvement in bandwidth compared to leading up-to-date chips with Memories LPDDR4X, if you assume that the memory controller architecture remains the same and is based on four channels of 16 bit. In addition to improving performance, there may be a significant improvement in power consumption savings, so there is good reason to be enthusiastic about this long-awaited transition.
The Computational Learning Processing System of theExynos The 990 also promises a significant leap forward, with over 10TOPS processing capabilities (or 10 trillion basic 8-bit calculations per second) for a pair of in-product NPU accelerators and a built-in DSP unit combined - compared to 1.85TOPS performance for NPU accelerators In the modelsExynos 9820 andExynos 9825. When will we see winning applications that justify this potential and improvement? That's another question already.
For dessert, the image processor in the Exynos 990 supports shooting with sensors up to 108 megapixels - which is also a fairly clear allusion to supporting the company's large and intriguing Bright HMX sensor, with the hope of becoming the leading choice Smartphones Advanced in the market instead of the popular Exmor RS sensors Sony Who dominated the high market for many years.
Samsung has clearly stated that the new chip supports screens with high refresh rates of up to 120 Hz - and this is a clear hint, we hope, that this advanced feature will be part of the first Exynos 990 devices on the market. Apparently this is the family of theGalaxy S11 to be launched somewhere in the early months of 2020, based on a proven history of the company's development cycles that gave it the first and undisputed spot in the mobile market.
One recent interesting fact about the Exynos 990 is that it will not offer any built-in cellular connectivity capabilities, unlike what we have become accustomed to with the vast majority of modern chips in the smartphone market. For size reasons chip, Heat dissipation and effective output at Samsung have decided to separate the cellular connectivity capabilities into a separate modem chip that will be the brother of the Exynos 990 - chip God-Exynos Modem 5123 with second generation connectivity, third generation connectivity, ultra-advanced fourth generation connectivity that can offer unprecedented theoretical download speeds of up to 3Gbps and upload speeds of up to 422Mbps, as well as extremely fast and varied fifth generation connectivity with exciting download speeds of up to 5.1Gbps at traditional 'frequencies 'In channels below 6GHz and in addition download speeds of up to 7.3Gbps in GMM channels at frequencies above 24GHz.
This means that all smart devices based on theExynos 990 will probably also come with technical support for fifth-generation networks, without exception, even in markets where Networks These do not yet exist - so in Israel, too, the same models should be prepared in advance for the future, if and when we see progress into the new era at last.
The Exynos 990 chips will enter commercial scale at the end of the current year, making them natural candidates to launch future Galaxy S devices סמסונג Of course, at least in some countries of the world - and maybe even the next version of theGalaxy Folding folds or other surprising devices not yet publicly revealed.
Soon we are also expected to win a formal declaration chip The next leading Snapdragon from home QualcommProbably theSnapdragon 865 - Then we can start examining theExynos 990 in the right light, compared to the direct competitors expecting it on 2020.
