Samsung Exynos 8890 Octa

The Samsung Exynos 8890 Octa is a System on a Chip (SoC) for smartphones and tablets. It was announced late 2015 and first appeared in some Galaxy S7 devices in the beginning of 2016. It integrates four Samsung M1 cores where two are clocked at 2.6 GHz and all four cores under load at 2.3 GHz. Furthermore, four power saving ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.6 GHz are present adding to a total of 8 cores. As a graphics card, Samsung integrated a ARM Mali-T880 MP12 (12 cluster version). The memory controller supports 2 x 32 Bit LPDDR4 with up to 1800 MHz.

The processor performance is on par with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 that can also be found in some variants of the Galaxy S7. The 820 is faster in single threaded tasks, the 8890 pulls ahead if it can use all 8 cores. Therfore, the 8890 is one of the fastest smartphones SoCs in 2016.
