Samsung may finally redeem itself with the launch of its new Exynos 2100 SoC, with new benchmark results showing the processor matching the Snapdragon 888 in single-core performance and even beating Qualcomm's next-gen SoC in multi-core performance.
Samsung's LSI division, responsible for its custom SoC efforts, was apparently left humiliated by the company's decision to use Snapdragon 865 processors in the Galaxy S20 models sold in its home market.
The latest premium mobile processor from Samsung is built on a 7nm process and boasts eight cores and the ability to power a 120Hz high refresh rate display. A new modem from the company also enables 5G functionality.
On the eve of the Note 10 launch, Samsung has unveiled its first 7nm chipset: the Exynos 9825. The chipset has the same cores as the Exynos 9810, but the node shrink to 7nm should lead to better energy efficiency.
Samsung doesn't use its own Exynos processors in all of its phones and tablets, but it has struck a deal with Audi to start using its chips in its cars to power its next-generation infotainment systems.
