Samsung has just unveiled its new system-on-chip (SoC), the Exynos 9 Series 9820 processor that includes an AI-accelerator (NPU). Thanks to this addition, such devices are now able to handle all AI-related processing without the need to pass the task to a server, which in turn speeds up the performance by up to seven times.
Users will be provided with much better performance
The new processor improves the single core performance by some 20 percent and the power efficiency by around 40 percent, while the multi-core performance is better by 15 percent. These improvements will guarantee more fun for users, making their lives much easier. For example, the device will be able to quickly recognize objects so that they can be used in virtual or augmented reality, or to adjust the camera settings to the surroundings. Moreover, the broadband speeds that reach 2.0Gbps allow users to download an HD movie in several seconds and to play MMOGs without any interruptions.
Samsung wants to keep up with the other companies
Samsung is not the only company that focuses on improving its processors, as Qualcomm has recently unveiled its two new chipsets developed for IoT gadgets. Moreover, Huawei and Apple have also built their own processors that will work well with more demanding apps and improve the performance and speed of the device.
The new chip might be used on Galaxy S10
The latest Samsung’s chip, the Exynos 9 Series 9820 is set to be ready for mass production by the end of 2018. The South Korean company will most likely still use Snapdragon chipsets in the U.S. rather than their own Exynos processors, but it is possible that the latest chip will appear in the international models of phones that Samsung will release in the future. For example, Galaxy S10 may feature the new addition to the Exynos line.
