Samsung’s Mongoose cores to be much faster than Cortex-A57

Samsung is a company that likes to design and produce own processors for its smartphones. The Exynos 7420, which is used in the latest Galaxy S6 smartphone is a prime example of this. So a few weeks ago when Samsung announced it was going to produce a new chip called Mongoose (as of now) the news was not much of a surprise.

Well, it seems that Mongoose packs a surprise after all – according to the latest information about it the chip will be faster than the Cortex-A57 architecture and by a lot at that – thanks to a radically new architecture Mongoose will offer 45 per cent more performance when compared to the Cortex-A57 cores found in the current Samsung Exynos 7420 flagship. The new chip will fully support the 64-bit ARMv8 instruction set and will be produced on 14 nm FinFET technology just like the Exynos 7420 processor that is used in the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge smartphones.

The mass production of Mongoose is expected to start in 9-12 months. The new processor is likely to be used in the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7.
