Samsung has unveiled its new premium SoC, the Exynos 9820. The chipset will be used on devices like the much-awaited Galaxy S10 and Note 10. It is built on Samsung's 8nm node and features the new Mali-G76 GPU found on the Kirin 980.

Samsung, today, announced the launch of its new flagship SoC, the Exynos 9820. The chipset is a direct successor to the Exynos 9810 that was released at the start of the year, and will be found on a number of next-gen Samsung flagships.

The Exynos 9820 comprises of two custom Mongoose 4 cores, two high-performance Cortex-A75 cores, and four efficient Cortex-A55 cores. It is built on Samsung’s 8nm LPP FinFET process, an upgrade from the 10nm node upon which the last-gen Exynos 9810 was built. The Exynos 9820 is said to boast of a 15% increase in multi-core performance over the Exynos 9810, a 20% boost in single-core performance, and a 40% rise in efficiency.

The Exynos 9820 also incorporates a dedicated Neural Processing Unit, something which the Exynos 9810 lacked. On the graphics side, it features Mali’s new Mali-G76 MP12 GPU. A similar GPU can be found on the new Kirin 980 but the HiSilicon SoC opts for the less powerful MP10 variant. 

The Exynos 9820 is capable of 8K video recording at 30fps, a first in the market.

Samsung’s new SoC is something of an incremental upgrade to its predecessor, especially in the performance department. It features the older Cortex-A75 cores, for example. It is, however, a significant upgrade in terms of efficiency, a much-needed factor considering Exynos SoCs poor reputation with efficiency. While it’s not quite as impressive as Huawei’s Kirin 980, it still is a solid offering by Samsung.
