Samsung claims its Exynos 7420 is 30-35% more power efficient compared to 20nm SoCs

Home / News / Samsung claims its Exynos 7420 is 30-35% more power efficient compared to 20nm SoCs

It’s no secret that the upcoming Exynos 7420 is a powerhouse. Preliminary and leaked benchmark scores of the SoC have pointed at an SoC that’s pretty much unparalleled in terms of performance, save for the top-of-the-line Qualcomm — the Snapdragon 810 — up to an extent. The octa-core CPU that the SoC houses, along with the Mali-T760 graphics chip present on the 14nm SoC give it the grunt we talk about. What one often ignores (that is, until you start experiencing battery problems) is the power efficiency of an SoC. Samsung, though, wants to keep its existing and to-be users updated in that regard.

The company claims that its Exynos 7420 will be 30 to 35% more power efficient compared to ‘older’ chipsets that make use of the 20nm manufacturing process. Given that the chip will be used on ‘a variety of products this year’ (many of which shouldn’t be tough to guess), Samsung is certainly heading in the right direction, or so we feel. What do you think?

Mali-T760 gpu? Quite crappy… Good cpu, but trash gpu.

You don’t know anything about GPU’s and yet you say it’s crappy. The mali t760 is a beast and it has only been seen in configurations up to 6 cores(Note 4). Samsung is rumoured to be using a 8 core config in the Exynos 7420, that alone will give the 7420 a 33% faster GPU than the 5433. But since core count isn’t the only thing they can do to increase performance they will do more to increase its performance. In the Note 4 the mali t760mp6 is running at up to 700mhz while the mali t760 is designed to… Read more »

if samsung makes their stuff open sourced that would actually be the game changer they need

I totally agree with you, it’s a much better solution than facebook.

What do I think? Well since you ask here is what I think. I think that Samsung need to really re-think how they design their chips. Yes, granted they are more powerful than the Snapdragon alternative, however these new chips are not really pushing the boundaries of what’s possible from Samsung. They are a major player in the chip manufacturing industry now and they can’t even push their own chips? Apple’s A8X is a monster of an SoC. How is it that their 7420 is only ‘edging’ out the A8? Shouldn’t Samsung want to destroy the competition? If I were… Read more »

You need to consider some very important aspect here on any comparison. This was a preliminary pre-release chip in a pre-release phone. It doesn’t even have a fully optimized OS on it. Most of the times benchmarking isn’t the best gage for comparison when running two completely different OS’s as well as completely different hardware platforms. For instance Intel was putting out powerful 64bit chips, but compared to AMD’s x64bit platform first optimized to run 64bit Linux, when MS 64bit Windows was sputtering along and nearly choking like OS X was doing going to 64bit computing. Apple didn’t fix their… Read more »

The A8X puts Samsung in an awkward position since they partly designed it for manufacturing. The new Apple-Samsung agreement saves Samsung money right now when it needs it. There is only so much Samsung can do that does not look like copying other things. Putting that agreement at risk would have prevented Samsung from designing the S6 like it is now. It’s all specially difficult since Samsung is also limited with what they can do, since every Android device is basically using the same ARM core design. I don’t know what to tell you about your Lollipop version. The S5… Read more »
