Samsung Exynos 1000 could be better than Snapdragon chipset


A tipster claims that Samsung’s Exynos 1000 could be better or equal to the performance of Snapdragon 875 SoC.

A few days ago, it was reported that the Korean tech giant would be handling all the Snapdragon 875 orders. And while the news was absolutely an exciting one, the tip we received today regarding Exynos 1000 is even better.

According to a reliable source, there is a chance that Exynos 1000 might be better than the Snapdragon 875 chipset. And it is said to be featured in the next Samsung flagship smartphones that will come out in 2021.

Meet Samsung’s Exynos 1000

Exynos are well-known processors but certainly aren’t the most popular chipsets. Today’s market is to believe that Snapdragon lineups are the most powerful chipset.

For years, we have seen how Samsung Galaxy flagships have been tested against their Snapdragon counterparts. However, things may change with the arrival of the new Samsung Exynos 1000 chipset.

It seems that Samsung may have finally figured out a way to make great Exynos chips. According to Pocket Now, the Korean tech giant has given up on creating its own cores. And that is the main reason why its processors were always outperformed by Snapdragon chipsets.

In order to make this happen, Samsung will now license IP from ARM, just like Qualcomm does. This upgrade may give us a decent, or more remarkable Samsung smartphones.

A tweet confirmation

According to a well-known leaker with the handle Ice Universe, next-generation Exynos and Qualcomm chips will feature a 1 + 3 + 4 core configuration.

This mathematical sentence means that we will get one prime core, three performance cores, and four power-efficiency cores. This makes sense since Samsung Exynos 1000 is rumored to feature the X1 Core, which would handle tasks that require maximum performance.

The Cortex X1 is claimed to be 23% faster than the new Cortex-A78. Aside from that, it also features enhanced machine learning capabilities.

The chipset was unveiled by ARM earlier this year to feature a 20% improvement in overall performance. According to the company, you will get up to 50% less power consumption for the same CPU performance.

For comparison, the four A55 cores in the Exynos 990 run at 2.0 GHz. Therefore, we can expect a small overclock for all the given cores. What those cores may be is unclear as of now. The Exynos 1000 is said to feature the new Cortex-X1 core.

As of now, we only have to wait for the new Samsung Exynos 1000 chipset to launch. And then we should be able to test them against its Snapdragon counterpart in Samsung Galaxy flagships.
