Samsung Exynos 9820
The Samsung Exynos 9 9820 is a mobile SoC for smartphones and tablets. It was announced late 2018 and was first integrated in the Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphones early 2019. The SoC integrates three clusters of processor cores with different architectures. Two big Samsung custom M4 cores clock up to 2.7 GHz and deliver peak performance. Two additional ARM Cortex-A75 are also for performance tasks and clock at up to 2.3 GHz. Finally, four small and power efficient ARM-Cortex A55 cores clock at up to 1.9 GHz are in the third cluster. The different clusters can run simultaneously thanks to DinamIQ.
The integrated LTE modem supports LTE-Advanced Pro Cat.20 (8CA 2 Gbps download, 3CA 316 Mbps upload). The integrated graphics card is a ARM Mali G76MP12 with 12 cores.
The performance of the CPU part is positioned in the high end segment for smartphone processors. The single core performance is, thanks to the big custom cores, a strong suit of the CPU and reaches the levels of Apples mobile SoCs. The direct competitor Snapdragon 855 can be left behind in single-core benchmarks like Geekbench and operates on par in multi-core benchmarks. The predecessor Exynos 9810 can be bested by around 17% in our first benchmarks with the Galaxy S10 Plus.
The SoC is produced at Samsung in the new 8nm LPP process that should also help with some of the performance gains.
