Samsung Exynos executives revealed some information about new Exynos products in an interview, that is the Exynos 1080 chip that will be launched this year. According to Samsung, it is a new SoC with flagship performance. The Exynos 1080 are 5nm process, Cortex-A78, and Mali-G78.
As for Mali-G78, compared to G77, the theoretical performance density is increased by 15% (it can be understood as a 15% increase in performance under the same area, or a 15% reduction in area under the same performance), a 10% increase in energy efficiency, and a 15% increase in machine learning.
The new process allows Exynos 1080 to have higher performance and lower power consumption. This is also Samsung’s first 5nm mass production chip.
Needless to say, Cortex-A78 and Mali-G78 are probably the first products that come from the famous “78” dual flagships of ARM. According to ARM, Cortex-A78 has 20% higher performance than A77 under the same power consumption.
In the case of the same performance, A78 has to save 50% of power, and the same frequency performance of A78 is improved by 7% than A77. Today’s top SoCs all use A77 as a large core, and Exynos 1080 directly uses the latest A78. The single-core performance should be greatly improved, and the multi-core performance will also increase.
