Samsung announced today (24) the launch of its most powerful processor that does not come with an integrated 5G modem, the Exynos 990. It is manufactured with 7 nanometer lithography, promises to be 20% more powerful and economical than the Exynos 980 and it will certainly be within the Galaxy S11 next year.
It is an eight-core processor, two of which are high-performance Cortex-A76s, four Cortex-A55s that consume less power and should be activated practically most of the time, in addition to two other cores that can be customized for each device. All of this works with a Mali-G77 GPU and is capable of supporting screens up to 120 Hz, in addition to recognizing up to six sensors in one device and that can generate images of up to 108 megapixels – Samsung already has a sensor with all this resolution.
In addition, the Exynos 990 uses new chips to work with artificial intelligence and image capture. These two can perform more than 10 trillion operations per second. The idea is to further reduce the dependence on internet connection for some everyday tasks.
The absence of 5G connectivity can be solved with another launch of the day, which is the Exynos 5123 5G modem. It will be able to work with networks below 6 GHz, in addition to those that use the millimeter wave pattern. In internal tests the manufacturer achieved speeds of 5.1 Gbps in sub-6 GHz and 7.35 GHz in millimeter waves.
Mass production is promised later this year, in time for the February launch that always happens with the Galaxy S line.
