Samsung today introduced the Exynos 8 Octa processor, a system-on-a-chip that is the first from Samsung to also feature a Category 12/13 LTE modem. The chip is made with Samsung's 14nm process. The Exynos 8 Octa supports four custom cores Samsung designed based on ARM's v8 architecture, which are paired with four Cortex A53 cores. The Exynos 8 is 30% faster and 10% more power efficient than the older Exynos 7 CPU, and supports wireless download speeds up to 600Mbps. Samsung paired the Exynos 8 with ARM's Mali-T880 GPU to power 3D gaming and virtual reality. Samsung says the SoC delivers rich multimedia experiences. The Exynos 8 Octa is intended for mid- to high-end smartphones. Samsung expects to ship it in volume by the end of the year. Samsung used its Exynos processors — rather than Qualcomm's Snapdragon chips — in the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note 5.
