Samsung shows off the latest processor Exynos 8 Octa

12 November, 2015 Samsung

Samsung shows off the latest processor Exynos 8 Octa to compete with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820.  Samsung says that Exynos 8 Octa 8890 will go into production by the end of the year, so it is very likely that it will be used in Galaxy S6's successor, ex. the Galaxy S7, which will probably debut in the first quarter of 2016.


Like the Exynos 7420, the new Exynos 8890 is an octa-core, 64-bit chip based on ARMv8 technology and manufactured using a 14nm FinFET process, while the 7420 featured four ARM Cortex-A57 CPU cores and four lower-power Cortex-A53 cores, the new chip is the first to pair four of Samsung's own custom ARMv8 CPU cores with four Cortex-A53 cores as it's the company's first premium chip to feature an integrated LTE modem with upload speeds as high as 150 Mbps and 
maximum download speeds as much as 600 Mbps.


The new chip supports display resolutions up to 4K UHD (4,096 x 2,160px), even though the existing Exynos 7420 has support for such displays, but we haven't seen a device with one just yet.


Samsung plans to begin mass production of the Exynos 8 Octa in late 2015.
