Samsung Exynos 9820 is now official, and it is the first chipset from the company that is based on 8 nm LPP (Low Power Plus) FinFET process. Well, this is an evolution from the 10 nm Exynos 9810. Just like the Huawei’s Kirin 980, the new Exynos 9820 also comes along with Tri-cluster CPU and improved NPU. Also, there exists a 2 Gbps LTE modem to take care of your connectivity.
Samsung Exynos 9820 chipset comes along with 4th-gen CPU with two custom cores for ultimate processing power, two Cortex-A75 cores for performance and the third cluster of four Cortex-A55 units for efficiency. The all-new intelligent task scheduler improves the multi-core performance by 15%. Also, the single-cores performs 20% faster and provides 40% more efficiency. All these numbers are in comparison to the last generation’s Exynos chipset.
The new LTE-Advanced modem on the chipset is a step forward to 5G chipsets. Well, the chipset provides with 2 Gbps downlink speeds and includes 8x CA and 316 Mbps uplink. Interestingly, just like the predecessor, the Exynos 9820 relies on 4×4 MIMO, 256-QMA and eLAA technology for “blazing speeds.”
The GPU on the new Exynos 9820 is a big achievement as the Mali-G76 cores will give you up to 40% performance boost. Along with this, the chipset provides 35% power savings for longer use of VR and AR applications. The NPU on the chipset will be a separate unit to process AI tasks about 7 times faster. We expect the new camera on the upcoming Samsung flagship to perform near to the Pixel devices.
The chipset will soon start its mass production, and it will be ready for the Galaxy S10 in Q1 of 2019.
