Samsung has announced its new 8nm Low Power Processing (LLP) mobile application processor (AP), Exynos 9820, optimized specially for Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications, faster internet speed, and enhanced performance.
A mobile AP is a combination of central, graphics and video processing units, as well as an internet modem, into one chip and is used to run operating systems and applications. Accordingly, it is often referred to as the brain of mobile devices.
According to Samsung, the new Exynos 9820 features an integrated Neural Processing Unit (NPU) can carry out multiple computing processes without any delays. Compared to its predecessor, the Exynos 9820 performs AI-related tasks seven times faster than its predecessor.
The company said, this new NPU allows users to experience next level of VR and AR experiences without any compromise and can deliver better camera quality with improved calculations of objects, shapes, environment and light effects.
Moreover, the new Exynos 9820 features multi-format codec (MFC), which supports the encoding and decoding of 8K videos at 30fps or 4K UHD 150fps encoding and decode with 10-bit HEVC(H.265).
This is a 4th Gen CPU, based on tri-cluster architecture and consists of 2 custom cores, 2 Cortex-A75 cores, and 4 Cortex-A55 cores. Which the company said, can improve single core performance by up to 20 percent or boosts power efficiency by up to 40 percent. In addition, the multi-core performance is also increased by around 15 percent.
it is equipped with the Mali-G76 MP12 graphics processor, which offers up to 40 percent improvement in performance or 35 percent enhancement in power efficiency for better and smoother Gameplay.
Another notable feature of the new Exynos 9 processor is its internet modem, which extracts a download speed of 2Gbps with 8x carrier aggregation (CA) and an upload speed of 316 Mbps. The company claimed, with the power of this process users can download a 3.7 FHD movie in 15 seconds and can play MMO Games with less lag.
The company also announced that the mass production of Exynos 9820 will be started by the end of 2018, which we'll undoubtedly see in the Galaxy S10 series in 2019.
