Samsung announces its first 5nm chipset Exynos 1080
Samsung has finally unveiled its next-generation upper midrange chipset Exynos 1080. This chipset is built on the 5nm EUV FinFET technology and comes with an integrated 5G modem.
Exynos 1080 has an octa-core CPU with a triple cluster design. It has four Cortex-A78 cores and four Cortex-A55 Core. From four A78 cores, 1 is clocked at 2.8GHz while another cluster of three Cortex-A78s reaches 2.6GHz. A55 cores are clocked at 2.0GHz. For handling graphics, it has a Mali-G78 MP10 GPU.
Samsung claims that the new chip offers 50% increase in single-core performance and a 100% improvement in multi-core performance as compared to Exynos 990. The Mali-G78 MP10 GPU also offers 130% improved performance as compared to the Mali-G77 MP11 GPU used in Exynos 990. The new SoC also has neural processing unit (NPU) for predictive tasks and AI applications.
It supports the latest LPDDR4x and LPDDR5 RAM standards along with UFS 3.1 storage. The SoC can be used with WQHD+ displays of up to 90Hz refresh rate, or Full HD+ panels at up to 144Hz refresh rate.
Exynos 1080 supports up to 200MP single camera or dual 32MP + 32MP cameras. It also supports [email protected] video recording.
This Chip has an integrated 5G modem supporting both Sub-6GHz and mmWave standards. Other connectivity options are Bluetooth 5.2 and all Wi-Fi bands.
Exynos 1080 is expected to arrive in early 2021.
