Exynos 8895 chipset rumored to have 3GHz CPU clock speed and a 70% improvement in image processing


The Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 are all powered by the Exynos 8890 chipset. Next year's high-end models like the Samsung Galaxy S8, are now expected to feature the Exynos 8895 SoC. The chip appeared on India's import-export site Zauba earlier this summer, and is believed to be manufactured using the 10nm process.

According to a report out of China, the Exynos 8895 will feature a CPU running as fast as 3GHz. Images will be processed 70% faster. Considering that some believe the Galaxy S8 will be focused on photography (no pun intended, really), that would seem to make sense. In addition, the chip is said to be optimized for low power usage with maximum power consumption no higher than 5W.

The chipset was allegedly tested on Geekbench where it scored  2301 on the single-core test, and a power-packed 7019 on the multi-core test. The Exynos 8895 is code named Kanchen, which was listed on the Zauba posting.

Speculating from the code number, it doesn't seem to be a huge difference except the clock speed and 10nm process. I wish something to be able to compete with Apple's A10.

Apple announces iPhone 7 and tells the world that its ISP is 60% faster than before. One week later, a Samsung related leak states that next gen Galaxy S will feature 70% faster ISP - Funny. Shame on someone drawing a connection between these two events.

Or Samsung/Apple having been taking note from Qualcomm https://www.qualcomm.com/news/snapdragon/2015/10/12/snapdragon-820-sneak-peek-advanced-imaging-experiences-qualcomm-spectra The 8895 is supposedly coming in ~4 months That means it has most likely has already been taped out or in the process of being taped out, or possibly already in production Can't really redesign it's ISP now without delaying it another 6+ month

The gpu will be mali G-71

maybe the gpu will be Mali t880 mp16... I bet on it

May be G-71MPxx (new architecture which can have up to 32 shedder cores).

LOL. Yep, shader, thanks for correcting me.

It actually says "70% ~ 80% faster" in that Chinese paragraph. So I don't think it's connection between the 2 events.

Will the Snapdragon 830 compete with the A10?

Sounds like a pretty generous improvement... Wish they'd focus on GPU power but this is nothing sneeze at. The Note 7 was a one off. Samsung still makes insanely great hardware. The S8 will likely bring a lot to the table. TouchWiz is always going to be TouchWiz but the hardware Samsung packs makes up for it. The camera the S7 packs alone is worth owning.

GPU power should be an issues Exynos have always been competitive with Qaulcomm's And ARM's Mali G-71 is new architecture, should be a bigger increase than 7420 to 8890

This is meh at the best. The single core performance is nothing improved. The 8890 already did 2300/6500. 2300/7000 is not even 10% if it's geekbench 3. Even if it's geekbench 4, it's less than 30%. Apple is racing away with this while android manufacturers are just increasing clockspeed. Also S7's camera is garbage.

Apple improved about 35% for its single cores too and the S7 camera garbage comment again? Get real. Best aperture/sensor ratio in a modern smartphone (not counting the Pany), great RAW quality, fastest autofocus, especially in low light.

51. sarcastic_nerd unregistered

I would love it if Samsung improves 35% on single core. But less than 10% is really bad.

Looks like a 20-25% improvement for single core and 25-28% for multi.

53. sarcastic_nerd unregistered

I'm almost 90% sure it's for geekbench 3, in which the exynos does 2300/6500. This is 0% for single core and less than 10% for multi core. Even if this was for geekbench 4, the exynos 8890 already does 2000+ for single core. So the difference is just 15% in single core, which is puny.

Don't count on it. SD820 was rumored to be 3.0ghz as well but it fell far from that.

3GHz would drain battery unnecessary fast even with 10nm process. If Samsung compensates with a large enough battery, they should be finde. Nevertheless, I'd rather have less GHz with longer battery life.

6. Luuthian

Sure. We don't know enough about how it will run in the new phones though. It may be throttled and only run at 3ghz an enth of the time. For all we know they'll adopt a new battery standard too if that report PhoneArena had on a ready to go new battery system in 2017 is true. Too many unknown variables. But sure, if the processor runs too high and the rumored 4k screen drains battery so much that the battery life is he same as the S7, then it may be disappointing. But this just seems normal for the whole freaking industry. 1 day battery life seems to be as good as it gets.

Well the S7 doesn't have terrible battery life. After all it houses the same hardware as the S7 Edge. Even though in theory a higher clocked CPU and a higher resolution could add drain, the concept would be to conserve the drain my other means. All CPU's adjust their clock on the fly. The CPU may zip up to 3Ghz on a demanding task and then idle out. Its not gonna run at full tilt all the time. That is a given. Considering the S7's and the Note's all have 1440p display, all of them still last longer than pretty much any other so-called "flagship" device.

How do you know. Have you ever own a phone with a 3Ghz CPU? NO. You have no idea what you're talking about. You can have higher clock, without adding significant power drain.

It's basic science. If you raise the clock speed, you create a need for more power and you create more heat. You can "cheat" the science by using a die shrink or making advancements in the process (efficiency), but if all you do is raise clock speed, you will create higher power draw and more heat.

The key words there are, "if all you do..."

The 10nm die will help, but it remains to be seen what else is under the hood to offset a 23% increase in clock speed. I don't doubt it will be good.

or 2 out of the 8 cores could run at 3ghz...Samsung aways goes for a combo of performance to energy efficiency unlike qualcomm

As long as their is TouchWiz even if they install Intel xeon processor it will still lag like crazy.

The lag is in your brain.
