Samsung releases infographic for upcoming Exynos 8 Octa 8890 SoC
The new infographic summarizes key features of the Exynos 8 Octa 8890 that was announced in November 2015 from the South Korean manufacturer. The SoC, codenamed Mongoose, will incorporate the 64-bit ARMv8 architecture and should show a performance boost of roughly 30 percent compared to the existing Exynos Octa 7 7420 flagship SoC. Power demands have also been improved by 10 percent whilst simultaneously integrating an LTE Cat 12/13 modem.
On the graphics side, the new SoC will carry the 12-core ARM Mali-T880 for a theoretical performance boost of up to 80 percent and a power reduction of roughly 40 percent compared to the Mali-T760. The Mali-T880 was designed with GUI-intensive software, mobile 3D games, UHD, and virtual reality applications in mind.
While it's still early, we are fulling expecting the yet-to-be-announced Galaxy S7 to sport the new Exynos SoC. More will likely be revealed come MWC next month in Barcelona.
