The successor to the Exynos 980 processor from Samsung will arrive under the name Exynos 1080, and a Samsung researcher has revealed to us the first details about it. Note that this is not the best processor from Samsung for the year 2021, but rather it will be used in advanced 5G phones. Vivo has the first samples and it will likely be used in the upcoming Vivo X60 Series lineup.
Exynos 1080 will be manufactured using 5nm technology, although there is currently no information about the exact manufacturing technology used to manufacture this processor. However, it will be the first processor based on 5 nm technology to join the growing list of processors that are also manufactured using 5 nm technology, including Apple A14 Bionic, HiSilicon Kirin 9000 and Snapdragon 875, as well as Exynos 2100 that will be used. In the Galaxy S21 Series lineup.
Exynos 1080 will feature Cortex-A78 cores that will replace the Cortex-A77 cores used in the current Exynos 980 processor. According to ARM’s official figures, Cortex-A78 cores operating at 2.1GHz can provide 20 percent better performance compared to Cortex-A77 cores that have a frequency of 2.3GHz. You can expect the new Samsung processor to perform slightly better than the Exynos 980 processor that powers its Cortex-A77 cores at a frequency of 2.2GHz.
For the graphics processor, the new Exynos 1080 processor uses the Mali-G78 graphics processor, which provides better performance compared to the Mali-G76 graphics processor used in the current Exynos 980 processor, and is more energy efficient, although it depends on the number of cores To be used by Samsung.
This information was disclosed by Dr. Pan Xuebao, who is director of the Samsung Semiconductor Research Institute in China. The full announcement should arrive soon.
This still makes the Exynos 2100 the true successor to the current flagship Exynos 990 processor, so this means that the Exynos 2100 will debut in the Galaxy S21 Series lineup that will arrive to us early next year. The Exynos 990 was more advanced than the Exynos 980, as it was manufactured using 7nm technology and incorporating special M5 cores. This means it is entirely reasonable for the upcoming Exynos 2100 processor to use the advanced Cortex-X1 core as some leaks have suggested.
