Exynos 1000 SoC based on ARM architecture
ARM has already presented its new Cortex A-78 design, which should arrive for next year’s smartphones. The company promises an energy efficiency of up to 50%, without losing performance. In addition, the X1 core was also introduced, which is based on improving the performance of the devices. It can work with different partners and formulate personalized centers, which could meet different demands.
According to data released by ARM, the X1 is 21 percent faster than the new Cortex-A78, in whole calculations. Performance can reach a peak of 30% when compared to Cortex-A77. Bearing in mind that these are still laboratory estimates made by the company, without official tests on real devices. So each situation can have different results. The rumor states that this configuration could match the performance of the Exynos 1000 with the Snapdragon 875, and even overcome it in several scenarios.
