Samsung Exynos 1080 chip, features and performance

Exynos is a series of ARM-based chips which is developed by Samsung Electronics’ System LSI Division and manufactured by Samsung Electronics’ Foundry division. The chip is a continuation in the line of SoCs, which include S3C, S5L, and S5P. The company claims that the upcoming Exynos chip is entirely different from the competing Qualcomm SoCs but, on the same hand, have a few similarities to the other SoCs offered by MediaTek and Huawei.

At an event in China, Samsung unveiled the chip processor after finally acknowledging the presence of the latest Exynos 1080. The new mid-range smartphone processor has all the next-gen features and that one could imagine, and the chip will debit into a Vivo smartphone.

The Exynos chip is built using Samsung’s 5nm EUV process, which makes the product a very power-efficient one. It uses four ARM Cortex-A78 CPU cores where one of the cores is clocked at 2.8GHz. Talking about the remaining three cores, the A78 cores are clocked at 2.6GHz, and the other four Cortex-A55 CPU cores are clocked at 2GHz, which handle all the light and less complex tasks. The company also claims about the chip that the single-core processor in the Exynos would witness a 50% jump over previous-generation processors whereas the multi-core processors will see a jump of 2x update.

The Exynos chip also comes up with the Mali-G78 MP10 GPU, which is designed to deliver performance that is exactly similar to the Exynos 990 that has been used inside the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. As far as other features are concerned, the GPU also features Full HD+ displays with a 144Hz refresh rate along with QHD+ displays with a 90Hz performance loads. The power efficiency of the chip is also increased by 10%. Talking about the ISP of the chip processor, it supports up to 200MP cameras, which include 32MP+32MP and up to 4K 60 fps, along with the feature of HDR10+ video recording.

As far as the integrated NPU of the Exonys 1080 is concerned, it can reach up to a level of 5.7 TOPS of performance. The chip processor also supports LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage chips. The chip also supports a 5G modem where it also comes with the facility of 3.67 Gbps and 5.1Gbps. Other support elements include a USB Type-C port, and it will be first used inside a Vivo smartphone, which will likely release early next year.

With the latest Exynos 1080 chip processor, you will get an edge on the gaming competition as well with lifelike visuals. The next-gen console-like gameplay will take your mobile gaming to a whole new level which is possible with the new Samsung Arm’s second-generation Valhall architecture-based Mali-G78 GPU. The chip also allows you to amplify the gaming immersions with smooth and detailed visuals along with reducing load times and lag. Also, the Exynos 1080’s amazing power efficiency comes up with massive battery life for the apps which feature the most in your smartphone. This is the first-ever product to be based on the 5nm process, which allows the development of more power-efficient chips and opens up possibilities for slimmer feature designs and extraordinary battery life.
