Recently, Samsung introduced a new processor of its own design Exynos 1280. The chipset is already successfully used in two mid-range models A33 5G and A53 5G, but, according to representatives of the Korean giant, the potential of the new SoC is not fully realized.
The Samsung Exynos 1280 is made using a 5nm process technology and consists of eight cores: two high-speed Cortex-A78 (2.4 GHz) and six energy-efficient Cortex-A55 (2 GHz). The power of the novelty is enough, for example, to operate the display at a frequency of 120 Hz at a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. There is support for 108-megapixel cameras. Also, the novelty can ensure the operation of four modules of the main camera.
Thanks to the ARM Mali-G68 GPU based on the Valhall architecture, games will be smooth and without fps drops. Declared support for Fused Multiply-Add (FMA) technology, capable of performing multiple floating point operations in one step, and an artificial intelligence accelerator for local processing of calculations (up to 4.3 trillion operations per second).
The chipset will compete with Qualcomm Snapdragon 700-series processors, as well as MediaTek Dimensity 700, given similar capabilities and support for fifth-generation networks. Apparently, Samsung plans to transfer as many mid-range smartphones as possible to processors of its own production.
