Exynos - Widcon Technology

World First Widcon Technology Powers Exynos Octa-core Application Processor
The new Exynos processor extends the boundary of mobile devices to larger display and heavier user scenarios with drastically reduced power consumption through Widcon Technology supported by innovative TSV (Through Silicon Via). In addition to energy efficient big.LITTLE Octa-core architecture, and industry leading GPU computing power, Exynos 5 Octa maximizes utilization of processing capability through higher memory bandwidth and saves power consumption up to 20%* of total AP and Memory system for richer user experience and longer battery life.

What is Widcon Technology?

In Package-on-Package (PoP), there was circuit board between application processor and memory, thus data had to move through wires. In the new package, application processor and memory stacked directly through TSV(Through Silicon Via) technology. This means data moves through each ball and memory bandwidth becomes wider up to 17GB/s.

This structure also brings better energy efficiency. Higher bandwidth allows application processor to perform maximum performance even at low clock speed. Moreover, superior thermal dissipation comes from TSV structure and also makes new Exynos 5 Octa processor to maximize their full potential performance at low power consumption.

Be Free from Concerns About Power and Heat to Enjoy More Realistic Display

New Exynos 5 Octa with enhanced memory bandwidth enables more vibrant and detail display beyond Full HD such as WQHD(2560x1440), on smartphone. One of the most difficult parts to overcome the higher smartphone display resolution is power and thermal control to process large data in high speed while keeping high level of user's viewing pleasure. Conventional technology is struggling to achieve this goal within limited power budget level for some of user experiences. However, the new Exynos 5 Octa with Widcon Technology provides 30% wider memory bandwidth, but saves power consumption up to 20% in real user cases. Therefore, it is capable to realize the highest display resolution on smarphone and able to lower power consumption successfully in cooling condition.

Experience Your Spectacle Adventure on Tablet with Longer Playing Time

Exynos 5 Octa with Widcon Technology makes you enjoy the enhanced lifelike 3D gaming experience. New series' 30% faster data transferring speed* accelerated by the widest memory bandwidth up to 17 GB/s enables high-end, complex 3D gaming and seamless graphic experience on your mobile PCs with longer playing time.

Don't Miss Your Precious Moment and Share with Your Friends at High Speed

New Exynos - Widcon Technology overcomes existing but unsatisfied multimedia experience. Dual camcording is one of popular user experiences to share once in a lifetime moment with each other. However, its speed was not fully aligned with conventional video speed in a popular resolution, Full-HD, due to its power limitation and memory bandwidth capability. The new Exynos 5 Octa with Widcon Technology is capable to increase the speed of dual camcording so as to make it acceptable at the existing video speed level in smarphone experiences. Also, this Exynos 5 Octa with Widcon Technology shows faster application launching time, then you would never miss the moments while turning on apps like Gallery and Browser.
