Samsung Announces New Quad-core Exynos 4 Quad Processor

By 10:12 Tue, 13 Jul 2021 Comments

Samsung has announced its next generation Exynos processor that will be powering its next Galaxy smartphone. The Exynos 4 Quad comes with four Cortex A9 cores that can go up to 1.4Giga Hertz (GHz) individually and is based on Samsung's 32nm HKMG fabrication process.

The Exynos 4 Quad, also known as the Exynos 4212 (previously as the 4412), packs two times the number of cores as the Exynos 4 Dual (Exynos 4210) that you find in the Galaxy S II but due to the recent 32nm processor is assumed to be 20 percent more efficient. The Exynos 4 Quad also uses power gating on all four cores along with frequency and voltage scaling for every core, which would assist it slit down on power consumption when not in use. Samsung did not mention what GPU it will be using but it is likely to be the Mali 400-MP.

The recent Exynos 4 Quad is assumed to be pin-to-pin compatible with the Exynos 4 Dual, which would allow hardware manufacturers to easily upgrade to the recent chip.

We will see how this recent chip performs in comparison to the current chips when the next Galaxy device comes out.
