Samsung today announced the Exynos 7 Octa, a new application processor manufactured with Samsung's 20nm processes. The Exynos 7 Octa uses a big.LITTLE configuration with two banks of four cores each. One bank uses Cortex A57s for high-intensity calculations and the other uses Cortex A53s for low-intensity calculations. Samsung says this setup allows the Exynos 7 to deliver a 57% improvement in efficiency when compared to the older Exynos 5. The chip supports WQHD and WQXGA displays, and can push UHD content to TV sets. The processor can handle dual-camera 1080p HD video capture on devices equipped with front- and rear-facing cameras. The Exynos 7 includes the ARM Mali T-760 GPU, which Samsung says delivers a 74% improvement in 3D graphics performance. Samsung did not immediately say when the Exynos 7 Octa will reach consumer devices.
