Samsung's 2nd Gen FinFET 14nm Process Is Ready For The Exynos 8 Octa And, Surprisingly, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820

Samsung's 2nd Gen FinFET 14nm Process Is Ready For The Exynos 8 Octa And, Surprisingly, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820

Right before it announces its new device in the Galaxy S line, Samsung always hypes things up by unveiling bits and pieces of the phone's internals. Late last year, we learned that the Exynos 8 Octa was ready for mass production and for inclusion in the newest S flagship. Today, Samsung has let loose a few more details regarding the actual process of building this new processor.

Its predecessor, the Exynos 7 Octa, was the industry's first chip built on a 14nm FinFET logic process and Samsung is reiterating this year with the second generation of this technology. Thanks to optimizations and transistor structure improvements, the new 14nm FinFET LPP (Low-Power Plus) process delivers up to 15% increase in speed while consuming 15% less power compared to the previous 14nm FinFET LPE (Low-Power Early) process.

Samsung Announces The Exynos 8 Octa 8890

Samsung Announces The Exynos 8 Octa 8890

Samsung has just unveiled the newest member of its Exynos family of System-on-Chips (SoCs), the Exynos 8 Octa 8890. Like the Exynos 7 Octa chips from earlier this year and the Snapdragon 820 from Qualcomm, this chip is built on the latest 14nm FinFET process technology. The Exynos 8 Octa 8890 also represents the first time Samsung has custom-designed its own CPU cores based on 64-bit architecture, coupling 4 big custom cores with 4 small ARM Cortex-A53 cores to make up the 8 cores of the chip.

The company claims that the new technology offers a 30 percent improvement in performance compared to the Exynos 7 Octa while still managing to promise 10 percent more power efficiency.
