Samsung unveils Exynos 8 Octa Processor (8890)

Samsung just officially launched its newest high-end SoC, the Exynos 8 Octa (8890). Featuring Samsung custom CPU cores and advanced LTE, the new Exynos will provide brainpower to theGalaxy S7 and other Samsung flagships from next year.
We will have a closer look at the new 8890 processor in a deep dive post, but here are the basics. Just like the Exynos 7420 before it, the 8890 is a processor built on a 14-nm process, meaning that the distance between the microscopic components of the chip is just 14 nanometers. The smaller the process, the lower the power consumption and heat generation. Qualcomm’s freshly announced Snapdragon 820 (also manufactured by Samsung) is also 14-nm.
Exynos 8890 is a 64-bit octa-core design, with four Cortex A53 chips and four of Samsung’s custom cores. This is the first chip from Samsung to feature in-house designed custom cores. Previously, Samsung used ARM’s ready-made Cortex designs. The four Cortex A53 cores are the power efficient cores, while the four Samsung cores provide the grunt needed for intense applications.
