after Qualcomm And Huawei also comes to the Queen of the Smartphone market's turn to introduce its new chip, which offers self-developed processing cores, Core Massive graphics and modem LTE Built and advanced
While this may not really feel like that for the average consumer, this past week is one of the most significant in the smartphone market this year and will have a major impact on our standards and conventions in the upcoming 2016 - due to the official launch of the new generation chips Of Huawei first, Of Qualcomm afterwards, And now also of the great Samsung. Please meet Exynos 8890, Which is supposed to be the one that will guarantee Samsung another year of high level control.
We knew the name of the new chip before, and even Received a report About the start of his mass production over the past few weeks - but now we also get approval for his technical specifications, which correspond to the most optimistic early reports we encountered in the past six months.
The new chip will be an octagonal core, with four new M1 cores, also known as Mongoose - Samsung-developed processing cores based on ARMv8 architecture, similar to To Qualcomm's Kryo core And the heart of Apple's Twister. In other words, Samsung chose not to settle for the new core Cortex A72 ARM But to use their base to create a product that is more effective and suitable for them.
Preliminary tests indicate that the Mongoose cores are סמסונג Will be more powerful than the core Cortex A72 and probably are from Kryo core, and will approach the Twister cores (albeit at non-identical frequencies). All these data are on paper only now, naturally, when the actual performance can be tested only sometime early next year, upon arrival in the market of the first Exynos 8890 devices, which, according to all rumors,Galaxy S7, during January or February 2016.
The four M1 cores on Exynos 8890 will run (supposedly at a maximum frequency of up to 2.3GHz) along with four more standard and cost-effective Cortex A53 cores in the HMP-enabled big.LITTLE array, and all of these will have an extra large X-NMX Processing. It is too early to determine exactly what you can provide such a powerful core, but according to the little we saw from the same core in the configuration of four processing clusters in Huawei's new Kirin 880 chip, we assume that there is a potential for processing capabilities up to 12! -Mali-T12MP950 On the Exynos 7420 chips.
For dessert, the new Samsung chip will also feature an advanced built-in LTE modem (probably in the same chassis) chip, But not on the same piece of silicon as the competitor Qualcomm), with support for the Cat.12 download and Cat.13 upload, which means a download speed of up to 600Mbps based on the storage of three 20MHz channels to an effective 60MHz bandwidth and up to 150Mbps Based on pairing 20MHz channels.
This is the same support as the modem built into Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 820 chips, סמסונג Reduced (almost) completely the technological gaps it had in the chip world - and is ready to continue fixing its position as the leader, as it has been for most of 2015.
There are other technical details about the new Exynos that have not yet been unveiled, but the bottom line in Samsung is that they know how to deliver Performence Which are approximately 30 higher than those of the Exynos 7420, with an efficiency of about 10, inter alia thanks to the use of the second generation of the production process at14 nm With FinFET transistors, known as 14LPP. We are already looking forward to the opportunity to test one of the most intriguing products in the chip world for 2016, and we are excited that it will be as pleasant a surprise as the one we received with the leader of the next generation,Exynos Current.
If you rely on some of the rumors that are circulating on the network right now - the Exynos 8890 should deliver very impressive performance, both for a single processing and multi-core mode. Let's hope that this performance doesn't come at the expense of relatively cost-effective living battery Deserve
