Samsung and Google Teamed Up to Develop Custom Octa-Core Processor

Recent reports suggest a Google and Samsung collaboration. The two giant techs will develop a custom processor. Samsung will use its 5nm Fabrication Node to manufacture the custom chipset. Google will utilize the process-specific or application-specific processor. The upcoming processor is said to be under development. It could also be mass-produced later this year. Google might use the new processor for its next-gen Pixel smartphones or other purposes.

Samsung Develops Custom Octa-Core Processor For Google

Samsung has under development a new custom SoC. The custom-developed processor will be manufactured on the new 5nm process technology and is designed for Google. The new SoC could be an octa-core processor, according to some reports. Of the eight cores, four will be energy-efficient Cortex-A55, a pair of Cortex-A78, and two Cortex-A76.

While the South Korean company will source all the cores, Google will offer an ISP (Image Processing Processor) and an NPU (Neural Processing Unit to the chipset. The SoC might arrive with Mali MP20 for the graphics core, while some reports suggest a Borr microarchitecture.

Samsung has allegedly made a divided internal department, including 30 employees who have been in charge of developing the new Custom SoC. It’s still unknown if Google will introduce the upcoming chipsets on its low-budget Pixel devices. However, according to the amount and the types of components of the new SoC, Google might have bigger plans. The company might put these chips into a new lineup of low-budget Android smartphones with 5G support.

Samsung Might Forget About Its Exynos internal Components for Standard Third-Party Graphics and Cores

Some Samsung users encountered trouble with the Exynos chipset. They claimed that their devices became slower, the chipset deteriorated the camera skills and the battery life. Samsung now has all the chances to make a change. The company has reportedly rejected to embed ARM Mali graphics. Instead, it will use AMD’s graphics chips within its Exynos chipsets.
