Samsung Electronics has announced their latest premium application processor (AP), the Exynos 9 Series 8895.
The Exynos 9 Series 8895 is an octa-core processor, comprising of four of Samsung’s 2nd generation custom designed CPU cores for improved performance and power efficiency in addition to four Cortex-A53 cores. It also sports ARM’s latest Mali-G71 GPU and multi-format codec (MFC) which allows for 4K UHD VR experiences and 4K UHD video recording at 120fps.
It is Samsung’s first processor chipset to take advantage of the most advanced and industry leading 10-nanometer (nm) FinFET process technology with improved 3D transistor structure. This provides the chipset with up to 27% higher performance while consuming 40% less power when compared to 14nm technology.
According to Samsung, it’s also the first processor of its kind to embed a gigabit LTE modem that supports five carrier aggregation or 5CA. It can deliver data throughput at max.1Gbps (Cat.16) downlink with 5CA and 150Mbps (Cat.13) uplink with 2CA.
The Exynos 9 Series 8895 is currently in mass production.
