Today, Samsung officially released its flagship mobile processor Exynos 1080. This is Samsung’s first flagship chip built with a 5nm EUV FinFET technology.
Compared with Samsung’s 7nm process, Samsung’s 5nm process increases the number of transistors by more than 80%. This can bring stronger performance and lower power consumption.
Compared with the 8nm LPP process, the 5nm process used in Samsung Exynos 1080 has improved performance by 14% and reduced power consumption by 30%; compared with 7nm DUV, it has improved performance by 7% and reduced power consumption by 18%.
Not only that, the Exynos 1080 CPU uses ARM’s latest flagship Cortex-A78 CPU core. This is the world’s first 5nm Cortex A78 CPU. It is the fourth-generation high-end CPU based on DynamIQ technology. Its performance is 20% higher than that of the A77 under the same power consumption. Under the same performance, the A78 can save 50% of energy consumption than A77.
This time Samsung Exynos 1080 uses a 1+3+4 three-cluster architecture. Specifically, the octa-core CPU combines a Cortex-A78 core with the highest performance (the highest frequency is 2.8GHz), three high-performance Cortex-A78 cores and four efficient Cortex-A55 cores.
The company said that this powerful combination of cores is optimized for the new form factor and can provide the performance required to control multitasking, making its CPU performance almost twice that of the predecessor Exynos 980.
In addition, the GPU of Exynos 1080 uses ARM’s latest flagship Mali-G78 GPU core in 2020, and its performance is up to 25% higher than that of theMali-G77.
In terms of benchmark scores, the Samsung Exynos 1080 reaches 693,600 in AnTuTu, making it one of the processor platforms with the highest running scores in the world.
More importantly, the Exynos 1080 integrates Samsung’s latest 5G NSA/SA dual-mode modem. The latter supports a download speed of up to 5.1Gbps. In addition to supporting 5G NR Sub-6 and millimeter wave (mmWave), it also supports 2G, 3G, and 4G to achieve greater global network coverage.
It is worth noting that the Exynos 1080 also supports WiFi 6 technology, up to 200MP camera and up to 6 cameras at the same time.
