Samsung starts mass production of Exynos 8890, Snapdragon 820 chips

Samsung Electronics has announced it has started mass production of the new Exynos 8890 and Snapdragon 820 processors. These two chips were in the news a lot in the past few months but soon they will also be in your hands.

“We are pleased to start production of our industry-leading, 2nd generation 14nm FinFET process technology that delivers the highest level of performance and power efficiency” said Charlie Bae, Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing, System LSI Business, Samsung Electronics. “Samsung will continue to offer derivative processes of its advanced 14nm FinFET technology to maintain our technology leadership.”

Both the Exynos 8890 and Snapdragon 820 processors are made by using Samsung’s most advanced 14 nm FinFET LPP (Low-Power Plus) production processor. The use of this advanced manufacturing process will lead to 15 per cent better performance and 15 per cent lower power consumption when compared to earlier 14 nm chips. Samsung will also produce the Exynos 8 Octa processor by using the same technology.

These chips will be in new mobile devices by the end of the year or even earlier – the Snapdragon 820 is expected to power the upcoming Galaxy S7 smartphone and other devices a bit later. The same is also true for the remaining Exynos 8890 and Exynos 8 Octa chips.
