Exynos 8 Octa (8890)

LTE-Advanced modem integrated one chip solution built on 14nm FinFET process,
for breathtaking speed and best in class battery life

Exynos 8 Octa (8890) is Samsung’s premium application processor built on 14nm FinFET LPP process technology. Exynos 8 Octa is an integrated one-chip solution that features company’s first custom designed CPU based on 64-bit ARMv8 architecture and the latest LTE Category12/13 modem.

Enhanced performance
and better power efficiency
with custom CPU core

The Exynos 8 Octa has eight CPU cores including Samsung custom-designed CPU core based on 64-bit ARMv8 architecture. It provides over 30 percent improvement in performance and 10 percent in power efficiency compared to the Exynos 7 Octa. With Samsung’s own SCI (Samsung Coherent Interconnect) technology, which provides cache-coherency between Samsung’s custom CPU and Cortex-A53 cores, the processor fully utilizes benefits of big.LITTLE processing for offering perfect balance of performance and efficiency.

More power. More play.
2nd generation
14nm FinFET process

Exynos 8 Octa is built on 2nd generation 14nm FinFET
LPP(Low-Power Plus) process for best-in-class performance and efficiency. In FinFET transistor, the gate is placed on multiple sides of each source and drain, controlling the current leakage more effectively. And carriers can move across the many surfaces of fins-shaped 3d structure in transistor resulting in fast speed of computing calculation.

Life like multimedia experience

Exynos 8 Octa employs ARM®‘s latest GPU, Mali™-T880, for graphic-intensive user interface, 3D gaming and life-like virtual reality experience. With 4K UHD video recording and playback capabilities, and up to 4K UHD (4096x2160) & WQUXGA (3840x2400) display resolution support, users can enjoy life like visual experience.

Fast and reliable connectivity
with the integrated
LTE-Advanced modem

Exynos 8 Octa is a LTE-Advanced Category 12/13 modem integrated one-chip solution that supports downlink speed of up to 600Mbps and uplink speed of up to 150Mbps. Exynos 8 Octa supports FDD-TDD joint carrier aggregation for more flexible network usage resulting in reliable connectivity for seamless mobile network experiences.
