Impactos: 24

El nuevo chip para dispositivos portátiles de Samsung llega cargado con una gran lista de prestaciones que podría dar vida a equipos realmente interesantes. El llamado Exynos 8 8890, cuenta con ocho núcleos y un proceso de fabricación de 14 nanómetros basado en tecnología FinFET con diseño 3D que le permite conseguir mayor rendimiento. La CPU está basada en un diseño de ARM de 64 bits que ha sido modificada personalmente por Samsung, unos cambios que le permiten alcanzar un rendimiento superior del 30% y un 10% en cuanto a eficiencia respecto al anterior Exynos 7. Los gráficos corren a cuenta de una GPU Mali-T880, mientras que en cuestión de redes, la maca ha incluido un módem LTE de alto rendimiento con el que seguir los pasos de Qualcomm.

Se trata del primer chip independiente de alta gama que ofrece Samsung, unificando potencial de cálculo y un módem 4G de alto rendimiento. Todo ello resumido en una pequeña pieza que permitirá ahorrar espacio en el dispositivo, algo a lo que Samsung ya asegura que ayudará a conseguir opciones de diseño más flexibles. Esta prevista su inclusion en nuevos modelos moviles a finales de este mismo año, por lo que en breve podremos ver la potencia real.

“The Exynos 8 Octa is a leading-edge application processor for next-generation mobile devices that incorporates Samsung’s mobile technology leadership in CPU, ISP, and modem as well as process technology,” said Dr. Kyushik Hong, Vice President of System LSI marketing, Samsung Electronics. “With our custom designed CPU cores and the industry’s most advanced LTE modem, consumers using mobile devices with the Exynos 8 Octa will experience a new level of mobile computing.”

The Exynos 8 Octa is Samsung’s first application processor to include the company’s initial premium custom CPU cores based on 64-bit ARMv8 architecture providing over 30 percent improvement in performance and 10 percent in power efficiency compared to the Exynos 7 Octa. This chip also supports enhanced heterogeneous multi-processing for efficient usage of the eight cores, four custom and four ARM® Cortex®-A53, to deliver the highest performance and power efficiency in its class.

The Exynos 8 Octa is Samsung’s first integrated one-chip solution in its premium line-up that combines the application processor and modem. Samsung has delivered one-chip Exynos solutions for mid to high-end smartphones in recent years. The Exynos 8 Octa integrates the most advanced LTE Rel.12 Cat.12/13 modem that enables maximum download speed of up to 600Mbps (Cat.12) and upload speed of up to 150Mbps (Cat.13) with carrier aggregation. With such a high data transfer rate, the Exynos 8 Octa will contribute to delivering an excellent mobile experience, allowing users to enjoy and share high resolution video content on the go with ease. Also the one-chip solution benefits OEMs with a reduced number of parts needed and overall space required for a device, allowing more flexible design options.

For a graphic-intensive user interface, highly immersive 3D gaming and life-like virtual reality experiences, the Exynos 8 Octa employs ARM®’s latest GPU, Mali™-T880.

Samsung plans to begin mass production of the Exynos 8 Octa in late 2015.
