Samsung announced its latest chip, the Exynos 7 Octa. However, this is not really the all-new offering; rather, the Korean company decided to rebrand its new Exynos 5433 SoC, which happens to power some Galaxy Note 4 variants.
The Exynos 7 Octa uses ARM’s big.LITTLE architecture to integrate for powerful Cortex-A57 with four battery-friendly Cortex-A53 cores, all made using Samsung’s 20nm manufacturing process.
This, according to the company, should result in a 57% performance boost over the previous generation of Exynos 5 Octa chips.
Moreover, the new manufacturing process should also require less power.
