Samsung Introduces Octacore And Hexacore Chipsets

There is a lot of competition going on in the electronics market for the production and usage of the octacore chipsets. The Korean giant Samsung today unveiled 2 new octacore and hexacore chipsets at the ongoing MWC event. Samsung has previously used Exynos 5 Octa 5410 chipset in Galaxy S4 variant.


Today, Samsung announced its successor Exynos 5422 Octa. It has four Cortex-A15 cores clocked up to 2.1GHz, which will handle all the heavy tasks and four Cortex-A7 cores clocked up to 1.5GHz, which will take care of lighter jobs. This new version of octa 5 is said to give 34% higher performance than the older Exynos 5 octa models. Samsung used the home-made HMP(Heterogeneous Multi Processing) technology which enables the device to use any combination of up to eight cores. The chipset also supports 2,560 x 1,600 displays as well as 4K video recording. Furthermore, the chipset saves power consumption by up to 10 percent. GPU alongside the new Exynos Octa wasn’t mentioned.


On the other hand, Samsung unveiled the Exynos 5260 Hexa, which was already known when Galaxy Note 3 Neo was announced. It has total six CPU cores which are: two 1.7GHz Cortex A-15 cores and four 1.3GHz Cortex A-7 cores. The Exynos 5260 has all the abilities as that of Exynos 5422 except 4K video recording, but offers full HD at 60fps playback or recording. It can run on all the combination of six cores, including all the six cores at once. The graphics along this CPU will be the Mali-T624.

Exynos 5422 Octa is scheduled for mass production in the first quarter of 2014, whereas Exynos 5260 Hexa is already in mass production.


Along with this two chipsets, Samsung also introduced 2 new CMOS camera sensors with ISOCELL technology – 16MP and 13MP. Both are able to record 1080p videos, whereas the 16MP sensor is capable of recording full HD videos @60fps and will enter for mass production in the first quarter of 2014. The 13MP ISOCELL sensor can capture images at 30fps and will be available in the second quarter of 2014.
