The excitement of Christmas seems to come early for Samsung fans . Because the South Korean electronics giant has just kept its promise to release the Exynos 9820 chipset . Interestingly, this chipset is produced through the 8 nanometer LPP (Low Power Plus) FinFET process technology .
In addition, this SoC also comes with the support of a 2 Gbps LTE modem, CPU Tri-cluster and enhanced NPU capabilities. Samsung also immerses a 4th generation CPU with two custom cores for final processing, two Cortex-A75 cores for performance and four Cortex-A55 cores for efficiency.
Samsung also said that this new configuration has a smarter assignment schedule to increase multi-core performance by 15 percent. While the single-core results can reach 20 percent and provide power efficiency of up to 40 percent compared to the previous Exynos.
LTE-Advanced Pro modem support is Samsung’s way to get to the chipset with 5G connectivity support. Yes! This SoC is said to have downlink speeds of up to 2 Gbps. Other technical specifications include 8x CA and uplinks up to 316 Mbps.
Like the Exynos 9810 series, the new SoC also relies on 4 × 4 MIMO, 256-QMA and eLAA technologies to boost its speed. On the GPU side, Samsung pinned Mali-G76 which should be able to provide a 40 percent performance increase and 35 percent power saving.
NPU support is a separate unit that will make the AI process around seven times faster. Samsung also said the SoC is expected to be mass produced by the end of this year. That is, when the Galaxy S10 was released early next year, the Exynos 9820 was installed in it.
