The New Samsung Exynos 8 Octa 8890 Goes Official

Samsung recently revealed its next-gen chipset.

The chipset is named as Exynos 8 Octa 8890 and it was introduced in Seoul.

The chip is manufactures on a 14nm FinFET process. This chip is Samsung’s debut into custom built cores.

The 8890 has a quad-core array of in-house Mongoose 64-bit ARMv8 cores. For the simpler task, there are four Cortex-A53 cores.

For better interaction between two different clusters, the chip is fitted with Samsung Coherent Interconnect (SCI) technology.

The company promises that there will be a 30% increase in performance of the new chip. The chip is also considered to be 10% more power efficient than the previous one.

The chip also includes an integrated modem. It supports /13 LTE with download speed up to 600Mbps. The other features include a Mali-T880 GPU.

Like all the other ARM’s graphics processors, the number of cores is secret. Samsung uses the Mali-T880MP12 with whopping twelve cores.

The display resolution of the new chip is up to 4K UHD (4,096 x 2,160px) or WQUXGA (3,840x2,400px). This is all we know about the new chipset yet.

All the details and information is not confirmed by the company yet. We also don’t know that when are we going to see this device in an actual Samsung phone.

Right now, we can only guess that the chip is going to debut with the Galaxy S7, which is expected to launch sometime during the first quarter of next year.
