South Korean technology giant Samsung on Wednesday launched its latest mobile chip, the Exynos 980 having an incorporated 5G modem and smart processing performance in one chip.
“With the debut of our 5G modem this past year, Samsung was driving at the 5G revolution and paved the way in another step in freedom,” explained Ben Hur, vice president of System LSI marketing at Samsung Electronics.
“With the 5G-integrated Exynos 980, Samsung is still pushing to earn 5G more accessible to a broader array of consumers and continues to lead innovation in the cell 5G marketplace,” Hur added.
The 5G-enabled Exynos 980 not only will help reduce electricity consumption but also raise the space efficacy in a gadget. The new mobile chip’s strong modem supports 5G into 2G networks, supplying a quick gigabit downlink rate in 4G LTE as well as 2.55-gigabits per seconds (Gbps) from sub-6-gigahertz (GHz) 5G,” the business said in a statement.
The modem also supports E-UTRA-NR Dual Connectivity (EN-DC), which unites 2CC LTE and 5G connectivity to optimize mobile downlink rate of around 3.55Gbps.
Additionally, the chip supports a fresh Wi-Fi standard, IEEE 802.11ax that intends to provide faster pace and higher stability for easy internet gaming and smooth high-definition video streaming within Wi-Fi programs.
Packing two of the most recent high performance Cortex-A77 CPU cores and six effective Cortex-A55 cores, the Exynos 980 can provide the rapid and complicated computing power required from the 5G era.
The chipset comes equipped with a Mali G76 GPU and includes an incorporated NPU (Neural Processing Unit) for innovative AI capabilities.
