Samsung unveiled the Exyons 9820 which will power the Galaxy S10 next year today. It is Samsung’s next generation flagship smart chip with on-device artificial intelligence processing. The Exynos 9820 has lots of improvements over its predecessor processor chip Exynos 9810 from the last year.
Exynos 9820 features a fourth-generation custom processor with an advanced LTE modem with speeds of up to 2Gbps. It support UFS 3.0 storage, 8k video recording and 8nm manufacturing process. As reports suggest, it has a dedicated neural processing unit for processing artificial intelligence tasks independent of the main processor. The neural processing unit will allow far more powerful augmented and virtual reality experience on the smart phone.
But how does it perform as compare to earlier version of Exynos 9810? Exynos 9820 has 8nm process with dual core processor whereas 9810 has 10nm FinFET. The custom two cores do the complex tasks. The two cortex-A75 and four cortex-A55 cores optimize performance and
It supports 8k or 4k UHD video at 150fps encoding and decoding with 10 bit HEVC(H.265), H.264, VP9 codec. The separate neural processing unit is nearly seven times faster than earlier version. It let AI processing on-device without sending the task to server. This results in much better performance, faster processing and an improved personal security. This also let you adjust camera settings for a shot according to the surroundings which is new to smart phone cameras. Exyons 9820 delivers 20 percent improved performance in single core and 15 percent in multi-core processing. Power efficiency also increase by 40 percent. The graphics are processed by separate Mali-G76 MP12 GPU which further increased performance by 40 percent.
Exynos 9820 supports up to 5 sensors including an IR sensor for image signal processor. This enable smart phone of powering 16 megapixel dual camera setups and up to 22 mega pixel front and rear camera system. This surely is a chip of future. Rumors suggest that the Galaxy S10 will be the first device to be powered by Exyons 9820 processor.
