Samsung hints at a new Exynos processor, possibly the 64-bit 5433 for the Note 4

Recently, the AnTuTu benchmarking database was populated with not one, but two alleged Note 4 models, codenamed SM-N910S, and SM-N910C. The "S" apparently stands for the version of the handset with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, but the "C" model is where it gets interesting. It allegedly depicts a Note 4 with the rumored powerful Exynos 5433 processor that is yet to make a cameo in a Samsung press release. 

Now, that new Exynos processor is said to be an octa-core endeavor with Cortex-A57 and Cortex-A53 combination of processor cores, clocked at 1.3 GHz maximums. These are both ARM's first 64-bit processor cores, combining frugal power consumption with screeching fast performance. The GPU was listed as ARM Mali-T760, which means that the Note 4 should perform equally well in the graphics department regardless of whether it comes with Snapdragon 805 or the Exynos 5433. 

In fact, Samsung poured extra water in the rumor mill about its first 64-bit processor, by teasing on Twitter an Exynos announcement that is due today, as you can see in the picture above. We'll keep our eyes peeled and ears open, and will let you know all the juicy details about the eventual Exynos 5433 that will likely be in the Note 4, as soon as it hits the tape.

What if... I was never too impressed by Exynos processor to begin with. Snapdragon has been to hold its own really well in the past. I am more excited for Note 4. If I really want a Note 4 with Exynos processor, I'll just get it from eBay. No biggie.

snapdragon is better

In the past, Samsung Exynos 4210 on GS2 was far far better than Cr@pdragon S3. So we cannot confirm anything. But for me I prefer the Tegra K1 with 2 so-called Denver core (with some features borrowed from x86) with the Icera LTE modem than both Snapdragon and Exynos.

I believe so. Qualcomm chips are supported better by community. Just like jflte and i9500 variants of S4.

Isn't Snapdragon 805 enough already? It's not like we'll be able to record videos in 8K, or put 4K displays on large phones. I am not against phones becoming more powerful, I just don't want battery life taking a backseat again. S805 is powerful, but it's extremely efficient too (atleast according to Pocketnow).

Nope. It won't be enough to record a 4k video longer then 10 minutes on a 2k display.

At 20nm, I doubt it be that much power constraint, plus it probably produce less heat at 20nm and 1.3Ghz, compared to running at 28nm 2.5Ghz all time while playing games. The Apple A7 > Snapdragon perf per core. So the Exynos 5433 should demolish it

Exynos will always be the inferior SoC

Exynos on my s2 was miles ahead of the competing snapdragons at the time. So.....

And Sammy messed up with the next ones on GS3/4.

GS3 Korean version with 2GB of RAM is still better than S4 Plus dual-core. The problem of the GS3 International is 1GB of RAM, not the SoC. Exynos 4412 in GS3 and Note 2 is proved as the most stabe SoC ever in stabiity stress test (you can search) with very good thermal control (not very hot). The sh!tty Exynos only came after the stupid Octa big.LITTLE.

I have no problems with Exynos 5410. Maybe you should test it before making conclusions.

The one plus about the Exynos designs is that Samsung has often paired them up with Wolfson DACs. The Wolfson DACs/audio designs are usually quite a bit better than what you get with a Qualcomm DAC. Now some of this is the DAC and some of it is the audio output circuitry, including the headphone amp. In any case, if the Note 4 came with audio that was as good as the HTC One M8, that would be quite a selling point, especially with Android's recent support for USB audio.

64-bit ? From where you got it will be 64-bit ? Don't you think that jump to 64-bit would be a bigger model number difference than 5422 to 5433 ? It's just an over clocked version of 5422 (which was over clocked 5420 which was overclocked 5410 with upgraded GPU) with upgraded GPU. Just typical 4xA15 plus 4xA7 at ridiculously high clock speed with Mali 760. For now it looks like exynos 6 will bring 64-bit computing and this is just exynos 5.

I'm admittedly a Sammy hater, but this one will be quite a formidable one this time. Insider info....

I was the owner of GS3 and Note 2, and now I feel satisfied with my G2. Probably Exynos 5433 would bring me back to Note series. Full RGB AMOLED plus powerful yet efficient SoC are the main reasons for me to go back to Samsung.

For best results use a Snapdragon.

A8 will eat this things lunch and any "Crapdragon" that is out at the same time.
