Benchmark outs a new octa-core Exynos chipset, and it's not in a Samsung phone

Benchmark outs a new octa-core Exynos chipset, and it's not in a Samsung phone
Samsung won't be left out of the octa-core ARM Cortex-A53 race, it seems, leaving the field to MediaTek and others for the midrange. A new GFXBench database entry unveiled a Samsung chipset we haven't seen announced yet - the Exynos 7580 - running on an upcoming 5.6" TCL phablet.

Despite the titling, with a number higher than the 14nm Exynos 7420 that is in the Galaxy S6 or S6 edge, this new Exynos is a midrange endeavor, with what are likely eight Cortex A-53 processor cores, running at the humble 1.6 GHz maximums. 

As such, Exynos 7580 won't register breathtaking scores on AnTuTu, but it will undoubtedly do its Android job just fine, and allow manufacturers, Samsung included, to create more affordable handsets that will still run like a charm.

sounds like a Meizu phone maybe MX5 pro. Meizu will win big this year if they go exynos over SD 810 unlike other Chinese OEMs. maybe Xiaomi should take notice.

Because you are putting new technology thats in high end flagships (Not even available to other flagships. Its only available on the S6/Edge. Which is partially responsible as to why the S6/ Edge are so stincking fast!)

So your argument is that you don't want low end devices to be fast too? What a terrible world it will be once everyone can afford premium hardware...

Wow, graphics performance is really poor, Manhattan onscreen/offscreen is just 4,7 fps, T-Rex 13,9/13,8 fps.

Clearly another SD615 or MT6752/6753 competitor. If Samsung intended to sell it's chips to another brands, they have to put it in a real effort. It's too late, comparable chips was out there almost a year ago.

Some Meizu phone i'm pretty sure. Only ones who can get an exynos chip like that
