Samsung Exynos 5422 Octa-core and Exynos 5260 Hexa-core

Posted by – March 6, 2014

Samsung releases the Exynos5422, their fastest yet Octa-core ARM Processor, with optimized HMP Heterogeneous Multi-processing support with all 8 cores working simultaneously at up to 2.1Ghz reaching something like 20 thousand on Antutu benchmark (which is a lot). The performance for ARM Chromebooks may be extremely high. The Exynos5422 may have more than double the CPU performance over the Exynos5250 of previous generation Chromebooks (according to some online benchmarks for the dual-core Exynos5250 in Nexus 10 compared with the Antutu number Samsung shows for their Octa core Exynos5422 Antutu result), this should provide for some extremely powerful new Samsung ARM Powered Chromebooks! Samsung also announced the 6-core Exynos5260 with 2 big ARM Cortex-A15 cores and 4 LITTLE ARM Cortex-A7 cores, a design that may feed well for the mid-range market perhaps also better for Android Smartphone usage scenarios while the Exynos5422 may be best on Chromebooks that may need higher burst performance. The Samsung Exynos5422 is going to ship in the newly announced $399 Samsung Chromebook 2 with a 13.3″ FHD display, 4GB RAM, 16GB Flash and an ultra-thin and light form factor for a laptop.

Jolla Phone on Sailfish OS, the Meego successor

Posted by – March 1, 2014

Since 2011, many of the MeeGo team left Nokia to form Jolla, a Finnish company that wants to make phones based on their Sailfish OS. Sailfish OS is what’s left of Nokia and Intel’s MeeGo and the N9 mobile phone, the Sailfish software is based on the open-sourced components of MeeGo, while the Sailfish user interface is closed-source and had to be developed from scratch. Sailfish is compatible with some Android apps done in collaboration with the creators of Alien Dalvik, the Myriad Group, known for running Android apps with the Nokia N9. At their MWC booth, Jolla shows Sailfish OS running on the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7.

Samsung Wide IO Memory Interface for the faster and lower power ARM Processors of the future

Posted by – November 21, 2013

Memory bandwidth is one of the most important features in an SoC to get performance. Here presenting Samsung’s new memory architecture, possibly (my guess) to be used in Exynos6 (64bit) possibly at 20nm or perhaps even 14nm even, Samsung talks about their upcoming Wide-IO faster Memory Interface architecture for future ARM Processors to input and output much faster memory bandwidth. To run the same workload, it can use 60-70% less power of the memory plus memory interface power within the SoC, which is a large part of the power consumption within an ARM SoC, Samsung is ready with the technology. The business is about the timing, they are aiming for the best timing to introduce this technology. Provides for example 17gbit/s memory bandwidth, allowing to increase memory bandwidth possibly above 100gbit/s, to be confirmed as better technology is implemented. The history of LP-DDR is to increase the frequency to increase memory bandwidth, but with Samsung’s Wide-IO memory design, they can increase the memory lines instead and thus achieve much better memory bandwidth, possibly running 2-3x faster memory bandwidth at the same frequency, perhaps something like 50gbit/s easily. The demand for the memory bandwidth for smartphone devices will surpass memory bandwidth for the traditional desktop PC.
