Samsung (NASDAQOTH: SSNLF) According to the International Data Corporation, unit sharing unit, the world's largest smart phone manufacturer, received 21.7% market share in 2017. The company is also a major manufacturer of key components leading to smart phones like DRAM, NAND flash, camera sensors and even application processors.
In the last quarter, Samsung reported that its semiconductor business generated over $ 12 billion of operating profit, accounting for about 77.7 percent of the company's total operating profit. Sales of memory semiconductors accounted for about 85% of the company's total semiconductor sales.
In fact, Samsung does not only carry out its own chip manufacturing operations, but also builds chips on a contract basis for both itself and others, but it also designs its own applications for its own processors for its own devices. For example, the company's flagship Galaxy S-series and Note-series smartphones are supported by processors designed by Samsung. These processors are sold under Samsung 's Exynos brand.
On November 14, Samsung announced the next member of Exynos' application family and the chip that will launch the company's Galaxy S10 and part of the next Galaxy Note smartphone next year: Exynos 9820. Here's what you'll need: I know.
New CPU, faster LTE, AI engine
Samsung said the Exynos 9820 has a new, specially designed processor core that delivers 20% power increase in single-core performance and a 40% increase in power efficiency, compared to "pioneers who can upload data or switch between applications more quickly" . "
Multi-core performance says the company is "about 15%".
The Exynos 9820 has two of the 10 core cores, the Arm Holdings Cortex A75, and two of the special CPUs, which are four of the Arm's low-power Cortex-A55 cores.
This chip also includes the Arm-Mali-G76 graphics core. . It gives us a 40% performance boost or 35% power savings, ’he says. [augmented reality] applications."
Samsung also follows trends apple and Huawei's HiSilicon by placing the "neural processing unit" performed by the South Korean giant. [artificial intelligence] Seven times faster than the previous missions. "
Finally, the Exynos 9820 has a cellular modem with a download speed of 2 gigabits per second.
Production technology and desk clock
Samsung 's Exynos 9810 was made using the second – generation 10 nanometer technology known as the company's 10nm LPP. The Samsung Exynos 9820 was built using 8nm LPP technology, defined by the WikiChip as an 39 extension lad of 10nm LPP.
Samsung's 8nm LPP reduces power consumption by up to 10% compared to 10nm LPP.
In other words, Exynos 9820's major performance and productivity gains seem to be largely due to design improvements rather than changes in production technology.
The company claims that this chip will be mass-produced at the end of 2018. This is the right timeline for a chip that is expected to operate the new Galaxy S10 smartphones that will be launched in the first half of 2019.
