We've been hearing about Samsung's next generation SoC, the Exynos 9820, for a while now. The Exynos 9820 will mark a departure from the traditional big.LITTLE architecture and instead opt for a 2 +2 + 4 DynamIQ architecture. Full details about the new SoC are still scarce but we know that the Exynos 9820 will be fabricated on the 7 nm process using Samsung's Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) lithography. Now, fresh information has surfaced that claims that the Exynos 9820 will have enhanced AI processing abilities.

Korean media outlet ETNews cites industry sources who claim that the new Exynos Artificial Intelligence Application Processor (AP) will feature two neural processing units (NPUs). This will afford a significant performance boost in AI and deep learning related tasks such as image processing, face recognition, and speech recognition.

The Exynos 9820 will taken on heavyweights such as the HiSilicon Kirin 980 and the Apple A12X Bionic SoCs, which already feature improved AI capabilities. Exynos 9820's enhanced AI features might not just be restricted to the Galaxy S10 but might also find application in IoT devices as well. 

We still do not know what plans Samsung has in store for the Galaxy S10 and the Exynos 9820 but we should be knowing more in the days to come.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
