Samsung Introduces 10nm Exynos 7 Series
After a long time expectation, Samsung has introduced 10nm Exynos 7 Series 9610 microprocessor to customers around the globe. Samsung’s Exynos 7 Series 9610 CPU will support deep learning-based visual processing and 480fps slow-motion recording.
The Exynos 9610 processor consists of four ARM Cortex-A73 cores that run at 2.3GHz, also an additional four 1.6GHz Cortex-A53 cores to help smartphones run apps and multiple tasks quicker. A high-speed CPU, the chip also comes along with a second-generation ARM Bifrost-based Mali-G72 GPU. Samsung said that it enables “more realistic and immersive graphics on mobile devices”. The processor taps into the electronic giant’s 10-nanometre (nm) FinFET process, which it claims “elevates the multimedia experience in high-end smartphones”.
According to Samsung, smartphone users can get, “more enriched photo-taking and filming experiences”. It combines vision and image processing techniques with a neural network engine, which underpin face detection applications. This concoction of technology bodes for “camera out-focusing and augmented low-light images”. There is also smart-depth sensing, which means that “out-of-focus portraits can be taken with a single camera”. Vision and imaging processing techniques accelerate signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and brightness.
The processor can support always-on sensing applications as well. These include features such as gesture recognition and context awareness. The company claimed that even when mobile devices use a traditional two-stack image sensor, its new processor can encode slow-motion video by using image-signal technology.
Vice president of System LSI marketing at Samsung Electronics, Ben Hur, said: “The Exynos 7 Series 9610 is our latest mobile processor that delivers on added power and speed”.
The CPU has an embedded all-network LTE modem that enables 12 3 carrier aggregation at 600 megabits per second downlink and cat.13 2CA at 150Mbps uplink. It includes wireless technologies such as high-throughput 802.11ac 2×2 MIMO Wi-Fi, faster Bluetooth 5.0 and FM. The CPUs are intended for high-end mobile applications, including deep-learning image processing and 480 frames per second slow-motion video recording.
“More importantly, it sets a new performance standard for high-end devices with its deep learning vision-image processing solution and slow-motion video capabilities that change the way we engage with our mobile devices.”
