While we are yet to know when Samsung would launch its next year’s flagship Exynos 2100 chipset, the company launched Exynos 1080 SOC today at an event in China. While this is not the chipset that Samsung will pit against the likes of Snapdragon 875, it is still a flagship SOC that we will see powering not just Samsung phones but also in phones from other brands such as Vivo. Anyways, the Exynos 1080 is the first 5nm chipset from Samsung & comes with powerful Cortex-A78 CPU cores.
The octa-core CPU of this chipset packs one Cortex-A78 core clocked at up to 2.8GHz, three cortex-A78 cores clocked at 2.6GHz & four Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2.0GHz. There is Mali-G78 MP10 GPU. Samsung says that compared to the CPU of Exynos 990, 1080 offers over 50% better single-core performance & an incredible 100% better multi-core performance. The Mali-G78 MP10 GPU offers 130% better performance compared to the Mali-G77 of the Exynos 990. So it clearly shows that Samsung is pretty serious this time with its flagship Exynos chips since this year, we saw how easily the Snapdragon 865 beat the Exynos 990.
