Three new Samsung Exynos chipsets on the way

Samsung logoA new report issued on Saturday says that Samsung has three new Exynos chipsets being prepped. The Exynos 8890 will be the new top-of-the-line SoC. Formerly codenamed Mongoose M1, this is the chip that reportedly will be powering the Samsung Galaxy S7 in some markets. In the U.S. and China, indications are that the Snapdragon 820 chipset will be used instead. The Exynos 8890 chipset has already been spotted running the Galaxy S7 on benchmark tests.

The Exynos 8890 is said to have a maximum speed of 2.3GHz, and will use custom cores. In addition, it will be produced using the 14nm FinFET process. The chip could be released in the second quarter of 2016, around the same time that the Samsung Galaxy S7 is launched.

The Exynos 7422, which was rumored to be driving the Samsung Galaxy Note5 earlier this year, is also one of the new chips expected. The third is said to be called the Exynos 7880. The latter two will most likely employ the Cortex-A72 and Cortex-A53 using the big.LITTLE architecture. That means that four A72 cores will be used for tough tasks, and the four A53 cores will be employed for light housekeeping matters. The Exynos 7422 and Exynos 7880 could be launched in the second half of 2016, with the latter used in the next-gen Galaxy A mid-range models.
