Samsung started to commit code related to Exynos 7 processor to mainline kernel in August, but at the time details were scarce, and many tech websites referred to a Exynos 5433 64-bit processor from Samsung. Exynos 5433 for a Cortex A53/A57 SoC did not make much sense as the company recently announced Exynos 5430 based on Cortex A15 and A7 cores, so finally Exynos 5433 has been renamed to Exynos 7 Octa.
Here’s what we know about Exynos 7 Octa from information on Exynos 7 Octa page and an older Anandtech article about Exynos 5433:
- CPU – 4x Cortex A57 cores @ 1.9 GHz , 4x Cortex A53 cores @ 1.3 GHz
- GPU – Mali-T760 @ 700 MHz
- Memory Controller – 2x 32-bit @ 825MHz (13.2GB/s b/w)
- Display – Up to WQHD (2560 x 1440) / WQXGA (2560 x 1600) resolutions
- Video – Advanced multimedia format codec (MFC) including support for H.265/HEVC @ 60 fps
- Camera – Up to 16 MP 30fps rear camera, Up to 5MP / 30 fps front-facing camera, with dual ISP allowing for simultaneous video recording.
- Process – 20 nm HKMG
A57 cores are said to provide 57% more performance than the A15 cores found in Exynos 5 Octa processors, whereas. Mali-T760 GPU should deliver up to 74% enhanced graphics performance over Mali-T628 used in Exynos 5 Octa.
Samsung Exynos 7 is used in the international version of the Galaxy Note 4 smartphone.
