Samsung has just announced that its new chip Exynos 9 Series 8895 has come in mass production today. It is the first chipset of the company manufactured with the 10nm FinFET processing technology, and has a reinforced transistor structure for 3D.
According to Samsung, the new chipset offers 27% faster results and consumes 40% less energy compared to processors manufactured with 14nM processing technology.
In addition, the Exynos 9 series will be the world's first chipset to have an LTE gigabit modem, which is supposed to support no less 5CA. Basically, this means that the chipset can deliver incredibly fast speeds with max.1Gbps (Cat.16) downlink and 150Mbps (Cat.13) uplink.
"Apart from being developed with the most advanced 10nm FinFET processing technology, the new Exynos 9 Series 8895 incorporates Samsung's cutting-edge technologies including 2nd generation custom CPU, gigabit LTE modem, and more.
With state-of-the-art technologies such as VPUs, the Exynos 8895 will drive innovation in next-generation smartphones, VR headsets, and the automotive infotainment system, ”said Ben Hur, Vice President of Samsung Electronics' LSI marketing system.
The new Samsung Exynos 8895 SoC (system-on-chip) features eight cores, consisting of four second-generation custom designed CPU cores designed for better performance and more power.
In addition to the OCTA-core processor, the chipset also features an ARM Mali-G71 graphics processing unit that is supposed to deliver "3D graphics performance to the next level and minimize latency for a 4K UHD VR gaming experience."
Samsung also revealed that the Exynos 8895 chipset will feature a dedicated processing unit to improve security solutions that are required for mobile payments using various authentication methods such as iris scanning or fingerprint recognition
The Exynos 9 series also comes with a new integrated Vision Processing Unit (VPU) that can recognize and analyze data or movements for better video surveillance, panoramic image processing, and vision engineering.
