Samsung has launched the Exynos 9825 SoC which is built on its first 7nm EUV processing technology. It succeeds the 8nm Exynos 9820 with a promise of 20-30% higher performance while utilizing 30-50% less power. Samsung explains that the EUV tech has helped it to build a faster and more power-efficient processor.
In the introduction, Samsung is touting the chipset to be an impressive resource of cutting-edge gaming, one of the aspects that have been on high demand.
The Exynos 9825 chipset features an integrated Neural Processing Unit (NPU) that has been designed for AI-powered to AR applications. The NPU will help in recognizing usage patterns and fast app pre-loading. It can detect and identify a wide range of objects and scenes and the image signal processor (ISP) retouches for a perfect white-balance, focus, exposure, saturation photography.
The Exynos 9825 octa-core CPU packs tri-cluster architecture that consists of two 4th generation custom CPUs- two Cortex-A75 cores and four Cortex-A55 cores for greater efficiency. It equips Mali-G76 MP12 GPU, which is the same as Exynos 9820's and Samsung mentions it runs at faster clock speeds and lets you enjoy mobile gaming. The clock speed isn’t stated but for comparison, the Exynos 9820’s GPU runs at 702MHz. Samsung claims the Exynos 9825 SoC enables faster load times and the games run smoother.
Thanks to the integrated 4G LTE-Advanced Pro modem, the processor is capable for fetching peak download rate of 2Gbps, while uploads top out at 316Mbps. The Exynos 9825’s multi-format codec (MFC) supports up to 8K Ultra HD video encoding, in addition to 4K UHD display and HDR10+. The camera support is also similar to what its predecessor offers, which is rear 22MP, front 22MP,
The new chip is likely to be featured in the global variant of the Galaxy Note 10 which is launching today.
