The venture failed: No more development of Samsung's internal processing cores

The Korean giant confirms that it will stop developing its Exynos cores for the smartphone chips it manufactures - and focus on using the company's cores No changes, much like Huawei

The smartphone chip market is an extremely competitive area, perhaps even more so than the world of personal computer processors and servers where Intel and They've been wrestling for years - we see it leap to up-to-date production technologies every year, trying to bump the resulting performance and overall usability while maintaining minimalist power consumption and minimizing physical dimensions.

One of the major players in the field to stand out and grow to their competitive potential is by developing processing units independently: All modern smartphone world processors are based on the architecture of the Effective by the British company bearing the same name, but some are content with the use of general processing cores and graphical processing cores in the basic configuration of Itself (which we sell under the brand names Cortex and Mali, respectively) while others include dedicated processing units with Custom and different.

It has invested hundreds of professionals and large sums of money in trying to give itself a head start Across other players in the smart device world - but in most cases, it didn't really work in its favor

The best examples of this are Qualcomm's various Snapdragon products, for example, which are based on general processing units from the Kryo family plus built-in graphical cores from the Adreno brand - as well as the company's terrific processors That have been gradually used for self-development processing and graphing units (now known as Lightning and Thunder), in addition to interfaces Dedicated applications accessible by Huge Cupertino to get its significant performance advantage over the various Android models.

Developing chips with billions of transistors in a small-size product from the nail is really hard. who would believe?

is also Tried its power in the field over the last few years, with its leading Exynos chips on which some of the models were based S and Note (those officially launched in the country, for example) contained advanced and powerful Exynos M cores developed by a special engineering team of the company originating in the United States. Samsung has sometimes boasted of top performance test results for Exynos models with Exynos M cores, although practical technical tests have found that the company's solutions have often failed to meet the standards of Or of As far as efficiency and stability are concerned Over time.

Exynos M5 cores, which replaced Exynos M4 cores (pictured) earlier this year as part of the S10, will be the latest of its kind and will not get any continuity

Exynos M cores, offered in five different generations over the years, have not been widely distributed and have in most cases been combined with standard Cortex cores in few leading Exynos chips - and now we get Official approval That they will disappear completely from the surface. More Samsung Exynos chips will continue to hit the market, but based on Cortex cores of various types Itself, leaving only you Waffle in the battle for the crown of performance in the mobile chip world.

Chips New ones are still on their way to the market, and will continue to come in the foreseeable future - but their internal structure will be different from what we know.

Although it is giving up development of its own processing cores, it is worth noting that Samsung plans to continue to develop acceleration units for computational learning, cellular modems and even self-designed graphical cores - this is despite the fact that we have announced an expected collaboration between Samsung and Which will land the architectures In the giants of the Korean giant somewhere in the future. Let's hope that success in these areas is more significant and clear, and that justifies the big economic investment.

    1. There's also MediaTech. But it is a very expensive business and not for every lucrative company to invest.

      For those who remember, there were two Intel X86 processor makers, 20 a year ago - Cyrix and another whose name is currently forgotten. Neither paid for them and we stayed with Intel and AMD

  1. Android is significantly lagging in processing power compared to Apple. Qualcomm's monopoly holds the entire industry behind when they have no interest in improving.

  2. Microsoft does, however, develop its own processor (based on ARM, probably through a manufacturer in Asia). Appears in its new Surface X, where it runs custom 10 windows.

    1. As we wrote here on the site, "the microchip" is actually a light-hearted version of the Snapdragon 8cx from Qualcomm - a far cry from Samsung's development of its own SoCs with its own custom processing cores (plus its own modems, DSPs and NPUs).

    Wait, she's just started ... her slowness is notorious
