Quad-core Exynos 4412 Chipset Revealed In Kernel Patch

By 08:55 Mon, 12 Jul 2021 Comments

Guess who just committed a patch for quad-core chipset support in the Linux kernel repository. Samsung did, for their (yet unofficial) Exynos 4412 quad-core chipset.

The comment for the patch says it adds support for up to four Cortex-A9 cores. The cores will be running at 1.5GHz, same as the dual-core Exynos 4212. As you can expect, details on the recent chipset are pretty scarce.

There's no mention of the GPU at all and we can only guess when the gadgets with the recent chipsets will be out. Still, Samsung is probably aiming for a time-frame that lets the Exynos 4412 compete with Qualcomm's and NVIDIA's upcoming quad-core chipsets.

From the looks of it, this isn't the next-gen Exynos chipset (rumored for the Galaxy S III) that will utilize ARM's recent big.LITTLE technology and operates as a dual-core (switching between a pair of powerful Cortex-A15 and a pair of energy-efficient Cortex-A7 cores). There's talk that those recent chipsets will be labeled Exynos 5xxx.
