By adopting 3D FinFET structure on transistors, Samsung Exynos Processor has continuously delivered performance and efficiency by overcoming the scaling limitations of the conventional planar structure. FinFET technology enables to shrink process node under 14nm while effectively reducing or blocking current leakage for faster speed along with better power efficiency.
Through a completely clean sheet design, Samsung’s new custom CPU core offers higher single and multi-thread performance while using less energy. To develop the custom CPU core, Samsung licensed ARMv8 ISA (Instruction Set Architecture) and designed the micro-architecture from scratch, including branch prediction unit, fetch, decode, dispatch and execution units to make the best mobile CPU core to date.
Samsung Exynos Processor has led the multi-core trends in mobile industry. Exynos is the industry’s first mobile processor to adopt big.LITTLE processing with heterogeneous multi-processing (HMP) solution. It enables optimal combination of big and LITTLE cores for perfect balance of performance and efficiency.
Graphic Processing Technology
Samsung Exynos Processor features advanced GPU to offers a whole new level of high-end mobile graphic capabilities. For next generation gaming or 3D graphic experience, such as mobile VR, the Exynos Processor features cutting-edge graphic processing technology that supports advanced graphic API while drastically reducing the energy consumption.
Video Processing Technology
Samsung Exynos Processor features advanced MFC(Multi-format codec) for encoding and decoding video in multiple format. With power efficient video codec such as HEVC, users are able to record and enjoy video playback in high resolution for long period of time.
Image Signal Processor
To overcome the limitation of a small sized optical components, an advanced ISP offers diverse features to enhance the quality of photo and video. It controls the operation of camera as well as improves quality of photo with features like auto focus, color and dynamic range. The latest Exynos processors feature Dual ISP to support next generation camera use cases such as dual camera and to improve energy efficiency.
