Samsung announced on Wednesday the state-of-the-art state-of-the-art Exynos 9820, which will be released on the market, and will use the power-selection variants of the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 series, which will be released in the last year. The launch of the new silicon was designed specifically for on-device AI processing, such as the Kirin 980 and Kirin 970 chips from HiSilicon, the start of the modern smart intelligence entry such as Samsung's Exynos 9820, the subsidiary of Huawei. The new module is thus equipped with a neural processing unit which is independent of the main CPU of the SoC and is dedicated only to AI applications. Exynos will be mass-produced by the end of 9820 and will likely be launched at the beginning of 2019 with the Galaxy S10 product range, as well as Samsung's first series of foldable Android phones.
Samsung said the new NPU and its accompanying fourth-generation dedicated CPU will offer a "new performance dimension" in the smart device segment. Compared to the Exynos 9810, which is available in international versions of the Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9 Plus and Galaxy Note 9, the Exynos 9820 AI can handle tasks nearly seven times faster. As a result, all devices using the chip should have the ability to be less dependent on the cloud when it comes to power technologies such as AI & # 39; s management and machine learning. Solutions such as Google's federation learning should also benefit significantly from the newly added NPU. In addition to improving performance, the device-based AI has the advantage of being inherently safer, since there are fewer potential attack vectors in the transaction equation, based on the fact that cloud-based computing is not part of the solution.
Samsung has already summarized a number of commercially available examples of use in the near future; this points to intelligent camera systems that can automatically detect images and adjust the shooting parameters as a potential application of the NPU in Exynos 9820. Exynos 9820 is about 20-15% faster than the speed it uses for both single and multi-core performance, respectively. Likewise, single and multi-core processing efficiency was increased by 40 percent and 35 percent.
While some industry watchers are waiting for more important updates in terms of extreme power, the Exynos 9820 itself is based on the new 8nm Low Power Plus FinFET process, which is only 10 percent more efficient than the 10nm LLP used. For the creation of Exynos 9810, Samsung has completed the development of an even more advanced 7nm Extreme Ultraviolet process, but seems to have saved it for future chips. The new chip supports WQUXGA (3840 x 2400) and 4K UHD (4096 x 2160) resolutions, UFS 3.0 storage, LPDDR4x RAM and eight-core sports – dual-core (special CPU) system, dual-core (Cortex-A75)) and quad-core (Cortex-A55) configuration. Samsung has not yet announced factory clock speeds for the newest SoC.
Security is another major selling point of the Exynos 9820; The chip is based on a function that cannot be physically cloned to manage sensitive data in full isolation using a single key and a key manager with the support of a wide range of modern security protocols. The Exynos 9820 is not a 5G enabled chip, but the best 4G LTE silicon ever built, including Samsung's introduction of a new LTE Advanced Pro modem, offers support for download speeds up to 2Gbps. 8x carrier aggregation, such as 4×4 MIMO and 256-WAM compatibility, and peak upload speeds of 316Mbps are also supported.
Silicone is also equipped with Mali-G76 GPU cores, which provide 40% faster or 35% more energy savings than the graphics processor used by the previous chip. As a result, traditional games as well as AR and VR applications should perform better. For other content, the Exynos 9820 supports a multi-format codec (MFC) that can encode and decode 4K UHD videos up to 150 frames per second, and is more accurate, diverse and closer to reality with 10-bit colors. The majority of today's creation solutions. In the production of movies, the Exynos 9820 can make 8K video in 150 fps at 30fps or 4K UHD. The chip can manage 22 megapixel front and rear cameras or 16 megapixel dual camera installations. Samsung shows that the chip's image signal processor can handle up to five sensors in total and support infrared modules.
Background: Samsung has been actively developing the Exynos 9820 since the end of 2017, but the chip was expected to use the company's 7nm EUV FinFET process. At the moment, the company uses a less advanced solution, and has completely recovered its 8nm step, especially Huawei's HiSilicon using the 7nm process node for the latest Kirin 980 without the ABN (based on the old and less) instead of efficient optical lithography). There are also rumors that Qualcomm is called the Snapdragon 845 successor – Snapdragon 8150 – which is also based on a 7nm & # 39; process of the TSMC and therefore offers a more efficient operation.
Effect: The capabilities of the Exynos 9820 are in line with the latest rumors about the Galaxy S10 series. A large number of players, at least in a row, the top member will have a triple camera setting on the back side, he suggests. and focus on AI technologies a great deal. The fact that the chip supports 4K displays does not mean that the Galaxy S10 series will have the previous one, because its predecessor could use such panels in theory, but this capability was never used for a consumer class product.
The DRAM compatibility of the Exynos 9820 confirmed that although the Samsung has already been capable of producing, the Galaxy S10 series will not use LPDDR5 memory and this cannot be commercialized before 2020. The new chip to reach its peak with 4G In terms of network performance, LTE means that the 5G variant of the Galaxy S10 Plus, which is expected to be available in South Korea, will use Qualcomm's new generation of silicone. The San Diego-based company has already confirmed that Snapdragon 845's successor will offer 5G support as an optional function.
