Samsung's Exynos 7420 has been consistently the best performing chipset on the market this year, but it has possibly met its match with the launch of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 and the imminent unveiling of Huawei's Kirin 950. A day after Qualcomm unveiled the 820 Samsung has responded by announcing the new Exynos 8 Octa 8890 chipset.We widely expect this to be one of the fastest silicon on the market and it should make its debut in Samsung's Galaxy S7 in February. The new chip is 64-bit and is built on a 14nm FinFET manufacturing process. Samsung promises that the Exynos 8890 will deliver 30% better performance compared to this year?s 7420, while it will manage to be 10% more power efficient.
