NVIDIA had its second to shine earlier within the week, and Qualcomm had its personal announcements to make for 2013. Now, Samsung’s trying to flip issues up a notch with its own Exynos series of chipsets. Samsung has introduced the Exynos5, an octa-core chipset that makes use of some pretty fascinating strategies to provide optimal battery life whereas delivering best-in-class performance.
The chipset features two quad-core SoCs, with one being an ARM Cortex-A15 based implementation clocked at 1.8GHz, whereas the opposite is an ARM Cortex-A7 implementation at 1.2GHz. The previous shall be used for the standard CPU-intensive duties corresponding to gaming, internet browsing, HD video playback and more. Should you aren’t doing this stuff then the telephone will favor the weaker (but nonetheless highly effective), more battery pleasant set of cores.
The preliminary product will come in a 28nm taste, but Samsung is constant to work to carry that down to twenty, 14, and then 10nm over time. With 70% battery financial savings over the Exynos 4 chipset this factor should scream while offering extremely lengthy battery life at the similar time. Imagine a Samsung Galaxy Notice 3 with a three,300-3,500mAh battery coupled with this chipset - I’m already watering on the mouth.
Of course, phones and tablets aren’t the only things Samsung will look to stuff these items into. Samsung is also beginning to use Exynos5 inside its line of netbooks, including the already-available ChromeBook. We’re not sure when or if Samsung will use this specific chipset in a netbook anytime soon, but it certainly is a possibility.
The know-how is known as “big.LITTLE,” a cute play on what you may use to name a Java bundle or method in an Android app. Massive, little, or something in between - we don’t care what it’s called, we just need to see it in phones at some point this year.
