Exynos 7 Octa is the new 64-bit SoC from Samsung

Samsung has announced the launch of new Exynos 7 Octa core chip. The new SoC from the company features four Cortex-A57 cores for handling heavy-duty processing and four lower-power Cortex-A53 cores for increased energy efficiency when tackling light loads.


Samsung has fabricated two types of cores in the new chip. The Exynos 7 comes with A53 and A57 cores which is ought to offer 57% performance boost over its previous generation and at the same time it will consume less power due to its 20nm architecture.

Samsung has employed an ARM Mali-T760 GPU for graphics in the new SoC. The new chip adds 74% improvement in this category too compared to the T628MP6 GPU found in the Exynos 5 Octa. The GPU supports simultaneous photo and video capture at 16-megapixels and 5-megapixels for the rear and front cameras both at 30 frames/second. The new GPU also enables the use of 2560 x 1440 and 2560 x 1600 displays.

The new Exynos 7 Octa features an inbuilt LTE modem. Though there has been no words on the technical specification and clock speed from Samsung’s end but we believe to get it soon as many benchmark test would follow-up soon.
