At Apple’s autumn new product launch event, iPad Air 4 was the first to launch the 5nm processor A14 Bionic. After the announcement of A14, Redmi, Realme, and other brands have announced their desire to release devices with a 5nm chip. There is no doubt that this 5nm processor is Qualcomm Snapdragon 875. This processor will officially debut at the end of the year. This chip will probably be the most popular chip for Android flagships in 2021.
According to @UniverseIce, Qualcomm Snapdragon 875, and Samsung Exynos 1000 will all adopt architecture design. According to him, these chips will use the same “1+3+4” three-cluster architecture design. The E refers to Exynos while S refers to Snapdragon.
Specifically, “1+3+4” refers to super-large cores, large cores, and energy-efficient cores. This time, Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 is based on Samsung’s 5nm process and is expected to use ARM’s latest-generation super core Cortex X1. This has a more powerful performance than Cortex A78.
According to ARM, Cortex X1 has a 30% higher peak performance than Cortex-A77. The Cortex A78 has a 20% performance improvement compared to the previous generation Cortex A77 architecture.
If Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 adopts the Cortex X1 architecture, it will not only have greatly improved performance but will also bring a “1+3+4” combination of super core, large core, and energy efficiency core in a true sense.
As usual, Qualcomm Snapdragon 875 will be unveiled in December this year and will be officially commercialized in Q1 2021. At that time, Samsung Galaxy S21 series, Xiaomi Mi 11 series, OPPO Find X3 series will be the first batch of flagship mobile phones with commercial Snapdragon 875 chips.
EXYNOS 1000 TO BE 3 TIMES FASTER THAN SNAPDRAGON 865
We all know that the South Korean manufacturer designs not only smartphones and many other devices but also makes various components. One of them is the mobile chips. But its Exynos line SoCs are not as popular as that of Qualcomm and MediaTek. Moreover, we can even say that those chips can’t be compared with Huawei’s own-made Kirin chips. Recently, Samsung’s new processor Exynos 1000 has been leaked. Unlike other Samsung processors, this processor uses RDNA GPU technology. RDNA GPU technology was authorized by Samsung in June last year and will replace the existing Mali GPU.
Due to the use of RDNA GPU, the running score of the Exynos 1000 is very good. In Manhattan 3.1, it got a score of 181FPX. It is almost 50% higher than the Adreno 650 GPU of the Snapdragon 865. We should also take into account that this is only the smallest test item. In the Aztec ruins (Normal) test with higher performance requirements, the Exynos 1000 ran out of 138 FPS. It is almost 2.5 times that of the Snapdragon 865. In the test of the Aztec ruins (High), the frame rate of the Exynos 1000 reached 58 FPS, which was almost 3 times that of the Snapdragon 865. The Exynos 1000 is expected to be released at the end of this year or early next year and will use a 5nm process. Probably, we should expect for this SoC to debut with the new-gen Galaxy S series flagship.
