Last month, Samsung has started the construction of the 5nm EUV production line, which is expected to be officially completed in June, and the official production time will be around the end of 2020 and early 2021. Of course, after being put into production, Samsung is naturally mainly used for its own processor production. According to foreign media Sammobile, Samsung’s next-generation flagship mobile phone Exynos processor will use 5nm LPE process technology.
According to reports, the Exynos octa-core processor has two Cortex-A78 CPU cores, two Cortex-A76 CPU cores and four Cortex-A55 CPU cores. The chip also uses ARM’s unannounced Mali MP20 GPU, which is based on the Borr (Norse mythology codename) microarchitecture. And use the self-developed Visual Core ISP and NPU.
Foreign media also said that because Samsung is recently converting the Mongoose CPU core to a public ARM CPU core. It even ditched ARM Mali GPUs in favor of AMD Radeon GPUs. In fact, Samsung seems to have bigger plans for its Exynos chips in the future. And there are rumors that Samsung is working with Google to develop a custom Exynos chipset, and this custom Exynos processor will be launched as soon as this year.
Google officially said that this custom Exynos processor will be applied to future Pixel series, but what model will be applied to it, Google has not yet said.
