After the undoubtedly successful smartphone Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5 bar for Samsung Galaxy S7 is very high. One of the features of the upcoming flagship is the Exynos 8890 processor, which Samsung published information.
8 Exynos Octa (it has the same name 8890) is the first chipset from Samsung, it will use its own a custom kernel based on a 64-bit architecture ARMv8. As the name implies, the chipset is an eight-processor configuration big.LITTLE.
Architecture provides the use of the four low-power cores that can effectively deal with routine tasks, along with four productive cores for intensive treatment processes.
This will allow the processor to combine high performance and energy efficiency. In comparison with Exynos 7420, Exynos Octa 8 provides a 30% improvement in productivity and a 10% increase in energy efficiency.
Exynos 8890 is based on 14nm process technology FinFET. Built LTE modem processor supports LTE cat.12 for downlink and cat.13 for uplink, providing a maximum theoretical speed of 600 Mbit / s for downloading and up to 150 Mbit / s for loading, in the absence of other restrictions.
The infographic also tells about the GPU, but without such details. Infographics mentions that the graphics accelerator can provide a gaming experience PC or console, thanks to advanced features of 3D-graphics.
GPU also supports 4K displays, thus paving the way for higher resolution Samsung screens for future devices.
