It is capable of encoding and decoding 8K videos
Samsung has officially announced its latest flagship processor with the Exynos 9820. Made using an 8nm LPP process, the new chip comes with an integrated NPU that handles AI-related tasks up to seven times faster than its predecessor.
The octa-core processor uses a tri-cluster arrangement consisting of 2 custom cores, 2 Cortex-A75 cores, and 4 Cortex-A55 cores. The new architecture claims to deliver 20% better single core performance and 15% multi-core performance while being up to 40% more power efficient.
Powering the Exynos 9820’s GPU is a Mali-G76 MP12. Samsung claims that it can offer up to 40% better gaming performance and up to 35% better power efficiency. Other features include support for decoding 8K videos at 30FPS and encoding 4K videos at 150FPS with 10-bit HEVC(H.265) and a modem that supports download speeds of up to 2Gbps.
Mass production of the Exynos 9820 begins by the end of the year, and we expect to see this processor power the Galaxy S10 series in 2019.
