Samsung Galaxy Alpha features an Exynos 5430, the world's first 20nm HKMG based chip

Yesterday we saw the announced, with a premium metal design and an unusually smaller 4.7 inch display. One interesting addition to the handset is the powerful Samsung Exynos 5430 octa-core processor. It just so happens that this chip is the world’s first 20nm high-k metal gate (HKMG) based chip on a smartphone.

This new, more precise 20nm process comes after years of running on chips made using the 28nm lithography. The benefits of this new manufacturing node include the possibility to crank up clock speeds a bit, and achieve a better thermal footprint.

Samsung's 20nm HKMG is a planar design, but the casting process now forms the gate as the last part of the transistor construction rather than the first, and this theoretically improves performance since gate characteristics are less affected by extreme temperatures in manufacturing. When it comes to the new Exynos 5430 system-on-a-chip, we do know that it is a big.LITTLE design using four Cortex A15 cores running at up to 1.8GHz, and four Cortex A7 cores running at up to 1.3GHz.

We cant wait to see how the Exynos 5430 performs in the real world with the Galaxy Alpha.

NVIDIA announces 64-bit "Denver" ARM chip for Android which rivals PC performance

NVIDIANVIDIA has announced its new 64-bit ARMv8 "Denver" SoC for Android, which is the successor to its Tegra K1 chip. The company is very confident of the chips abilities and claims that the "Denver" SoC offers the same performance found on some PCs.

"Denver" will be available in two pin-compatible versions, and both feature a new technology called Dynamic Code Optimization. This technology "optimizes frequently used software routines at runtime into dense, highly tuned microcode-equivalent routines. These are stored in a dedicated, 128MB main-memory-based optimization cache." This means that when you run certain apps, the optimized code is already ready and waiting. And the Dynamic Code Optimization will work on apps already written for the ARM platform, meaning no additional work for the developer.

NVIDIA has high hopes for the SoC, saying that it will "rival some mainstream PC-class CPUs at significantly reduced power consumption." With speed, power and less power use, "Denver" appears perfect to run games, create content and run powerful enterprise-centric apps on Android flavored devices.

Qualcomm unveils 64-bit Snapdragon 810 and Snapdragon 808 processors

Qualcomm unveils Snapdragon 810 and Snapdragon 808Qualcomm, whose chips are available in most popular mobile devices, have revealed their next generation of mobile processors - the Snapdragon 808 and Snapdragon 810. The new chips are two generations ahead of the Snapdragon 801, which was recently featured in handsets like the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Sony Xperia Z2.

Samsung announces Exynos 5422 Octa and Exynos 5260 Hexa processors, both supporting Quad HD displays

SamsungSamsung announced two new mobile processors at MWC 2014. The Samsung Exynos 5422 Octa and the Samsung Exynos 5260 Hexa. Both support high-resolution displays, including Quad HD (2560 x 1440 pixels) and WQXGA (2560 x 1600 pixels), making us wonder if a Quad-HD version of the Galaxy S5 may be introduced later this year.

The Samsung Exynos 5422 Octa is a high end processor with includes eight cores: four ARM Cortex-A15 cores clocked at up to 2.1 GHz, and four smaller ARM Cortex-A7 cores clocked at up to 1.5 GHz. The 5422 uses 28nm technology, and comes with Samsung's optimized big.LITTLE HMP (Heterogeneous Multi-processing), being capable of delivering up to 34% higher performance than the company’s previous Exynos Octa processors. The Exynos 5422 will enter mass production this quarter

Intel announces 64-bit Merrifield and Moorefield mobile processors, signs new agreements with Lenovo, Asus, Dell and Foxconn

IntelIt looks like Qualcomm wont be the only chipset maker to announce 64-bit mobile processors at the MWC. Intel has unveiled its own LTE-ready, 64-bit Atom processors.

The first new Intel CPU, Atom Z3480 (codenamed Merrifield), comes with two 2.13GHz cores, is based on Intel's 22nm Silvermont microarchitecture, and uses a PowerVR Series 6 Graphics IP core from Imagination Technologies. According to Intel, the Z3480 Merrifield is the first Atom SoC to support the company’s new “Integrated Sensor Solution, which efficiently manages sensor data to keep applications smart and contextually aware even when the device is in a low-power state.” Merrifield-based devices (made by various companies) are expected to be released starting Q2 2014.

The second new Intel Atom processor that's made "for Android mobile devices" is codenamed Moorefield, has four cores clocked at up to 2.3GHz, and will include “an enhanced GPU and support for faster memory.” The Atom Moorefield will be released in the second half of 2014.

In addition to unveiling the two Atom processors, Intel announced that it signed new multi-year agreements with Lenovo, Asus, Dell and Foxconn. Asus and Lenovo will launch both smartphones and tablets based on Atom processors this year. Dell will introduce Android and Windows tablets, while Foxconn is releasing only tablets running Android.
"We have a strong history of working with Intel to bring compelling, computing experiences to market with products like our K900 smartphone, Yoga line of multimode laptops, MIIX 2 and ThinkPad 8 tablets. We look forward to an even stronger future together - delivering exciting mobile experiences from stylish smartphones to high-performance tablets with Intel inside," declared Peter Hortensius, chief technology officer, Lenovo.
We are expecting Samsung to join the 64-bit bandwagon, too, possibly with its Exynos Infinity chip that may be announced later today.
