Exynos Power Efficiency Video
June 27, 2012
The Samsung Exynos team strives to create high-performance systems that consume less power than other SoCs on the market. With the new 32nm low-power (LP) High-K Metal Gate (HKMG) process , Exynos design engineers have achieved improved power efficiency and performance in Exynos chipsets. In addition to being the first 32nm LP HKMG logic process to be qualified in the industry, Samsung’s 32nm process was designed to facilitate an easy migration to the 28nm node.
Jointly developed with IBM, the gate-first HKMG process reduces power leakage as compared to the SiON process used by competitors. The gate-first approach enables the 32nm process to deliver twice the logic density of 45nm processes while still preserving low power-consumption, which is why it is so well-suited to mobile applications.
How much more efficient is the 32nm Exynos generation compared to its predecessors built on 45nm? In the video featured below, you’ll observe the significant differences in CPU and GPU power consumption in SoCs built on each of these processes.
