Samsung teases 'no more wait for apps to load' with the Exynos in Galaxy S6 (video)
Samsung has a new silicon rival for Qualcomm, formally introducing the chipset that will power its upcoming flagship Galaxy S6 smartphone and iPhone killer hopeful - the Exynos 7420. The company outed the promo shot above and the video below now, promising that "waiting for an app to load is thing of the past with #Exynos processors." This might turn out to be true, as our pseudo scientific test recently found out that TouchWiz on Lollipop is much faster than people give it credit for. As for what is this "dauntless challenge," for the new Exynos, we will obviously learn March 3rd.
Preliminary benchmarks proved we're looking at a spectacular chipset that closely matches Qualcomm's cutting-edge processor's performance and is made on an ahead-of-its-time 14nm process. We learned that the 7420 SoC, which packs an octa-core processor and a Mali-T760 graphics unit, has its power consumption reduced by 30 to 35% percent compared to the previous generation 20nm chipsets, making for a low power, high performance package.
The processor is made on three-dimensional (3D) FinFET transistor technology, used to overcome the limitations of the typical 2D plane (Planar structure). Intel has been using this method for its desktop processors for a while, but Samsung prides itself on being the first to bring this approach to the cramped 14nm mobile application processor die. It will continue using this process in the production of its other semiconductor modules, such as its NAND memory chips, which could lead to smaller chips with increased capacity in the future.
