I only had to see the great big jet fighter coming out of the screen of a smartphone to be sold on Samsung's new Exynos 7 Octa. However, the MobileBurn hierarchy thought a proper write up was in order, so here I am. The Korean company showed off the new processor today and cool image aside its seems to be a powerhouse chipset.The new Exynos 7 Octa is the most efficient processor Samsung has made and is made up of four ARMv8 Cortex A57 cores and four Cortex A53 cores in a big.LITTLE configuration. The upshot of this configuration is that any of those eight cores can be active individualally, which helps with efficiency. The Korean giant claims performance is enhanced by 57% over the previous Exynos version, while the company boasts a 79% enhancement in graphic performance. That's thanks to the Mali T760 GPU SoC that is better than the T628MP6 GPU found in the Exynos 5 Octa. To get a little technical on the matter, the chip comes with support for panels 2,560 x 1,440 and 2,560 x 1,600 while it has the ability to grab HD video from the front facing and the rear camera at the same time. The chipset is also capable of pumping out 4K performance to a large screen, if the monitor or TV is compatible. Expect the chip to be arriving in a Samsung device near you in the future, the Galaxy S 6 perhaps? Samsung has not yet offered any clock speeds, but we imagine they will be suitably impressive.
