The publication has cited Dr. Pan Xuebao, who is the director of the Samsung Semiconductor Research Institute in China.
Exynos 1080 is Samsung’s first 5nm SoC
The new chip will likely fuel upper midtier 5G handsets like the upcoming vivo X60.
It will feature ARM’s Cortex-A78 CPU, which is nearly 20 percent faster than Exynos 980’s Cortex-A77. Graphics performance should improve considerably as the Exynos 1080 packs the Mali G78 GPU, as opposed to the G76 on its predecessor which is two generations old at this point.
Unfortunately, the Exynos 1080 is only meant for China.
The good news, though, is that Samsung’s chip operation seems to be headed in the right direction, and if a midtier chip has beaten the Snapdragon 865 Plus, it builds hope that the Exynos 2100 will at least not be a total slacker when compared to the Snapdragon 875.
To recap, the Exynos 990 has two Mongoose cores, two Cortex-A76 cores, and four Cortex-A55 cores, and the Snapdragon 865 features one prime Cortex-A77 core, three high-performance A77 cores with lower clock speeds, and four Cortex-A55 cores.
