Samsung’s upcoming Exynos 2500 SoC information has now been revealed by a reliable tipster. The upcoming chipset is said to arrive with the 10-core CPU architecture while introducing a new Cortex-X5 core.
Samsung Exynos 2500 Leak
Reportedly, the Exynos 2500 was earlier said to be in work with a quad-core Cortex-X architecture, but now a reliable tipster @OreXda shared the latest information, saying that Samsung is testing a different core combination.
Using too many Cortex-X cores may cause power consumption to get out of control, and the 10-core CPU architecture of the Exynos 2500 will remain consistent with the Exynos 2400.
The Exynos 2500 will use Cortex-X5 and Cortex-A730 cores. Compared with the Cortex-X4 and Cortex-A720 of Exynos 2400, the performance is expected to be significantly improved. Unfortunately, the clock frequency difference between the Cortex-X5 and Cortex-X4 is minimal, with test frequencies ranging between 3.20GHz and 3.30GHz.
In addition, the Exynos 2500 is expected to feature dual Cortex-A730 clusters running at different clock frequencies, similar to the Exynos 2400 design.
Samsung’s Exynos 2500 chip is likely to be mass-produced using the company’s most advanced 3nm GAA process, which has not yet been used in any smartphone or tablet chips.
