Exynos 5433 in the Note 4 is a 64-bit chipset, source code reveals

The Note 4 would be the first pro forma 64-bit Android flagship, or at least that will go for its reincarnation with Samsung's own Exynos 5433 chipset. Just as suspected, despite that the naming scheme still puts it in the Exynos 5x family, the newest Samsung chipset is not a Cortex-A15/A7 affair, but rather takes the next step in ARM's mobile architecture, by incorporating the 64-bit A57/A53 configuration, as its source code reveals...

They don't know what they're talking about bro!

You haven't even used Exynos versions of flagship Galaxy phones. They are faster than SD variants.

Oh I'm not hating on Note 4, in fact I'm planning to buy one for myself too. The thing is, if you look at all the past Samsung flagship phones which had both the Exynos and SD chipsets for the same model, you'll get to know that even though Exynos destroys SD in every benchmark, it still struggles to keep up with SD in everyday tasks.

See post 27,28 and you'll know why! one more thing the SD 805 will not be compatible with 64-bit when Android L update you'll be stuck with 32-bit software and 32-bit apps.

If I were Samsung, I would have shame of myself. How can a product comes with a 64 bit processor, but with a 32 bit memory. Don't accept to buy this trah, please. More the memory to be 32 bit, it bandwith and bus is very low. TRASH Now do you know what i will probably do? I will buy iPhone 6 Plus. You lose a consumer, TRASHSUNG.

I'm sure they will beg you to stay. Maybe they will send you flowers and candy. Lucky you.

Lol reading the Techradar iPhone 6 plus review. The A8 chugs with the full HD resolution.

I just read the who;e article...LMAO "During day to day usage I found the 6 Plus ran pretty smoothly, but it's not quite as quick as some of the top Android handsets on the market. Every now and then the iPhone would pause for thought ever so briefly." Most ios user except the ones that visit this site will not notice anything..

They will claim to not notice anything and claim that Android lags but I just find it funny that they have been hiding behind 640p screens more years and the moment they go HD, the supposed beats processor takes a hit. Imagine if they incorporated true multitasking...l

You called them "TRASHSUNG" and you where like I would have get one if not for this.... Stop pretending to be neutral...hater in you shows off even if you try to hide....you never gonna get a samsung for sure...

I have hate of you, idiot. I am with the cash for buy the Note 4, if I want. Foolish

You're the one being foolish..... buy what ever you want, No one forced you to buy their products.

Are you retarded? DRAM is almost always going to use a 32-bit bus in single, dual or quad channel in any consumer device. The memory bus width has absolutely nothing in common with the processor word size.

You bring the exynos to India and get bashed by the consumers. Try to get SD variant or else your sale will go down just lyk n3 & s5 here.

Yup thats why Samsung released S5 Snapdragon version also in India this year. But price? SD version is 10K higher then Exynos one. If this happens with Note 4 then what will be the price difference? Insane!

The real story here is not performance but efficiency. With the memory bandwidth and 20nm SoC, the Exynos version will comfortably beat out the Qualcomm counterpart and most smartphones out there. The heat management should be awesome too, the 5430 already handles heat quite well on the older A15 cores and IGP.

The memory speed should be much higher! Sucks that they have to dial down performance. Idk if this is 2 match the snapdragons performance or what?

Actually if you read carefully the AnandTech source article it clearly says that they can only confirm that the Exynos 5433 is indeed a Cortex A57/A53 SoC (which is ARM's 64-bit solution), BUT it appears NOT to be running in AArch64 mode (that's 64-bit mode to you and me). Instead, it takes advantage of the architectural improvements of ARM's Cortex A57 and A53 cores and their ARMv8 instruction set while running in AArch32 mode (i.e. 32-bit mode to you and me). The other interesting thing they say is that they weren't able to determine the number of cores on the ARM's new Mali-T760 GPU (the maximum on paper could be up to 16 cores), which was another curious omission from Samsung's announcement on last 3rd September that l had noticed.

So you're saying that the Note 4 will be stuck with 32-bit?!

55. magnum44 unregistered

lt's not me who's saying that ... it's AnandTech http://www.anandtech.com/show/8537/samsungs-exynos-5433-is-an-a57a53-arm-soc Basically they are saying that Samsung is deliberately not running its Exynos 5433 SoC in 64-bit mode (although it's based on a 64-bit ARM architecture). Maybe in the absence of 64-bit Android ( because Android "L" isn't out yet). BUT it still takes advantage of the architectural improvements of ARM's Cortex A57 and A53 cores and their ARMv8 instruction set (running in 32-bit mode). Samsung's Exynos 5433 also employs ARM's new Mali-T760 GPU which is supposed to be superior to the Adreno 420 found in Qualcomm's Snapdragon 805.

they just dont wanna loose sell's of the SD version, they surely will release the exynos version later as an gnote 4 LTE-A just like de S5 LTE-A :)

Nice. Exynos is taking over Snapdragon after its reign in 2013.

In memory performance the snapdragon 805 completely destroys the exynos 5433 while in other departments its the opposite. I wish they release a galaxy note 4 with snapdragon 810 in
