Samsung Galaxy S8 release date, rumors: new Exynos 8895 chipset to reach 4 GHz peak speed


The next generation of the flagship smartphone by Samsung, the Galaxy S8, could sport a chipset that is way more powerful than any model that has come before it even surpassing the processing speed and levels of its competitors. As per the latest rumors, it could very well be that the new Samsung Exynos 8895 chipset could outdo Apple’s new A10 chip and even Qualcomm’s upcoming flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 830.

In a new rumor report, the new chipset that Samsung has allegedly been testing for the next flagship smartphone of the company was recently put into core testing processes. This new chip is rumored to be called as the Exynos 8895. In the said tests, it was estimated that Samsung’s new chip was made under the 10 nm architecture. This means that the distances between the components of the system on chip (SoC) processor would only be 10 nanometers apart, giving the new chipset a smaller size and thus the chance to have more components incorporated without sacrificing power and performance efficiency. This would equate to the chipset being more powerful than those that were made with only the 16 to 14 nm architecture.

And powerful it turned out to be. With core testing, the maximum speed of the chipset was determined. According to the alleged test results, the larger cores of the chipset yielded a maximum frequency speed of up to 4 GHz. To recall, the current flagship chipset of the Samsung Exynos series, the Exynos 8890 Octa, is only able to reach a peak speed of 3 GHz. The smaller cores, meanwhile, is only able to reach a peak speed of 2.7 GHz.

In order to compare results, the Snapdragon 830 was supposedly put to test as well, and it yielded impressive results on its own; however, it was inferior compared to the Exynos 8895 since it only reached a peak speed of 3.6 GHz.
