For some time most of the best models of smartphones run Snapdragon processors. Samsung is trying to change that with their new in-house processors, trying to make the number of midranges available on the market greater.
The two new chipsets are the Exynos 7650 and Exynos 7880, both are roughly in the same range as the Snapdragon 620. Both are built in a 28nm range with a configuration of Cortex-A72 and Cortex-A53 (without certainty of number of cores) and Mali-T860 GPU.
What gives an edge to the new Samsung chipset is the slight clock speed and possible number of cores advantage. On top of that it has a faster RAM usage (17Gb/s vs 14Gb/s) and an extra core for the GPU (4 cores vs 3 cores).
The Cortex-A72 is the successor to the Cortex-A57 that’s used in current models. It’s based on ARMv8Aand it should have better performance and efficiency. For the GPU, it’s a double core Mali-760, similar to the Galaxy S6.
