Samsung details its new Exynos 1080, built on 5nm process

09 October 2020 0

Samsung has officially detailed the Exynos 1080 that is built on the 5nm process. A researcher at Samsung semiconductor revealed some of the interesting specs of the new processor.

The exact type of process is unknown but it official that the latest processor is using the 5nm fabrication. This means it is using more transistors in a given amount of area. This allows more cores to fit in, more cache, more advanced features, improved performance, and yes, the chip becomes lesser power-hungry as well.

Talking about the details which have been officially shared, the Exynos 1080 uses ARM’s latest CPU architecture that includes Cortex-A78 and the latest GPU Mali-G78. Going by ARM’s data, under the same process conditions, the A78’s CPU performance is about 20% higher than the A77. So, we can expect it to perform slightly better than the Exynos 980 that actually came with A77 cores clocked at 2.2GHz.

These are the only details we can pan out from the scantier details given by the researcher. We assume the full announcement will be followed soon. However, he did reveal the AnTuTu score of the chip. He said the device scored over 650,000 points on the AnTuTu benchmark, which is higher than the scores achieved by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 and Snapdragon 865+.

According to IceUniverse, one of the top tipsters, Vivo will be the first to use this chipset, probably for its X-series phone – Vivo X60.

Note that this is not Samsung’s top chip for 2021. Samsung has reportedly planned the Exynos 2100 processor as the high-end chipset for the next year. It might use the Cortex-X1 CPU core, ARM’s latest high-performance core.

Let’s see when Samsung plans to bring this new Exynos 1080 to the market for its partners.
