Two Exynos chipsets leak: 9610 with Cortex-A73 and Mali-G72, plus a China-focused 7872

Samsung could be working on the first Exynos 9xxx series chipset. Rather than a flagship-grade chip, this is a mid-ranger aimed at the Snapdragon 660. Then there’s the Exynos 7872, which is something of a Snapdragon 650 alternative. Exynos 9610 Dubbed Exynos 9610, this chip will be made on the established 14nm LPP process (which was used in the Exynos 8890 for the Galaxy S7). It will have an octa-core processor based on ARM’s Cortex-A73 and A53 (four of each). For one reason or another, Samsung didn’t use its custom Mongoose cores for this one (the S660 does use Qualcomm’s Kryo… – Latest articles

ARM announces Cortex-A75, Cortex-A55 and Mali-G72

ARM has taken the wraps off the next generation of its mobile CPU and GPU design. This includes the flagship Cortex-A75 CPU, which will replace the A73 and the Cortex-A55, which will replace the A53. There will also be a new GPU, the Mali-G72. The Cortex-A75 brings 22% additional performance over the A73 when compared at the same frequencies. It also has 33% higher FP and NEON performance and 16% higher memory throughput. In benchmarks, the A75 performs 48% better in Octane and 34% better in Geekbench. A75 is also more efficient than A73, which allows it to run at a higher clock speed… – Latest articles
