Ready for Galaxy S10: Samsung's new top microchip launched


This Samsung's newest high-end chip, called the Exynos 9820, was predictable, but its launch in November was unexpected. The largest chipset this year, included in the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Note 9, was first demonstrated with the CES show in early January.

Another unexpected feature is that the chipset is created in an 8 nanometer process. Not only did Huawei and Apple rivals 7 nanometer chips, but also when Samsung announced its 7-nanometer process is ready for production schemes. One of the reasons may be that Samsung is in a hurry. According to the company's press release, the Exynos 9820 will be available in volume before the end of the year. It starts at a much faster rate than it takes to sell the Galaxy S10, and can be interpreted as Samsung plans to launch the next higher model earlier this year. On the other hand, we almost every year heard the bankers start early, but this does not become a reality.

A thinner process means faster chips, but the difference between 7 and 8 nanometers can not be exaggerated, and the Exynos 9820 seems to offer standard performance improvements: 20% faster on single-use driving, 15% multi-tasking and 40% lower power consumption. This time, it has chosen a configuration similar to that of the Huawei Kirin 980, with three processor cores, four of which are Corex A55 core Corex, two of which are Cortex A75 and two are proprietary processor cores. The graphic circuit is the Arm Mali-G76 MP12. Another similarity to Huawei is that you now also have a special neuron processor for artificial intelligence and machine translation.

The chipset supports LTE at a speed that we do not get from our operators in the near future, but this generation of chipsets does not have 5G.
