The chipset uses an octa-core CPU configuration with a triple cluster design where there are four Cortex-A78 cores sat next to Cortex-A55 cores. Of these, the performance Cortex-A78 core runs at 2.8GHz, while the other cluster of three Cortex-A78s is clocked at 2.6GHz.
Samsung Exynos 1080 details
The Samsung Exynos 1080 is another octa-core processor by Samsung which follows the 4.3+1 core configuration. In terms of core structure, the company is using a combination of four Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2.0GHz, three Cortex-A78 cores clocked at 2.6GHz, and one Cortex-A78 core clocked at 2.8GHz. For GPU and NPU, it includes Mali-G78 MP10 GPU and onboard neural processing unit (NPU).
If you talk about digital signal processor (DSP), the SoC allows to run 5.7 trillion operations per second. As expected, the chipset supports 5G NR Sub-6GHz and 5G NR mmWave along with basic connectivity options of 4G LTE, Wi-Fi (802.11ax), Bluetooth 5.2, FM Radio, GPS, GLONASS and more.
