Samsung announces the 14nm Exynos 7 Octa 7870 processor

last year's Snapdragon 810 controversy, Samsung's diverse inventory of options means that it can largely avoid such drama. Not only that, but often, the Exynos product is superior the comparable offering from another company. As it continues to expand its chip-building division, Samsung has added a new mobile processor to its line-up in the form of the Exynos 7 Octa 7870, a 14nm chip that takes advantage of the company's FinFET process technology.
This isn't the very first time we've caught wind of the Exynos 7870. The chip was outed earlier this month alongside reports of a newer Galaxy J7. That particular tidbit was revealed courtesy of Geekbench, which naturally offered a glimpse at the 7870's performance stats. As you can see, given the mid-range target market for the processor, it appears to pack decent multi-core punch:
There's a good chance that the J7 (2016) will be among the first in receipt of the Exynos 7870, though there's no telling precisely when Samsung will launch it. With Mobile World Congress just a few sleeps away, the firm may decide to unveil it at the Barcelona exhibition. With that said, the original J5 and J7 weren't announced until June last year, and unless the company plans on making dramatic alterations to its release cycle, it's likely that the J7 will stay in the vault for now.

Here's some better news Vulkan is finally released! Only almost 3 years after AMD first release their Mantle API https://www.phoronix.com/scan.

Aside from MediaTek, Samsung also have painfully confusing chipset models. :/

they'll learn soon and made another naming style.. btw, mediatek helio line already have name equal performance, kinda like SD and the first thing get to my head when I read 7870 is Radeon series, thankfully they and Gforce use newer name sequence that less complicated now, lol

Why not an "Extreme version of the 8990 Exynos with Turbo button, like the Intel i7"....?

I love PA thats continue the propaganda. SD810 throttled up to 50% Exynos in S6 also throttle up to 50% :http://cdn.wccftech.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/thrott
So yeah its was a bit better in performance but throttled as much.

First pic was best vs avg scores. It has zero things to do with throttling. Second pic it was on-screen (1440p) T-Rex. Ofc it will throttle. Check this video on SD810 throttling (other socs too):https://www.youtube.com/watch?

14nm on mid-range is great news for a lot of consumers. Just cause you buy high-range doesn't mean that everything else is s**t. A mid-range with solid autonomy thanks to 14nm process would be a great deal for a lot of people.
