Galaxy S10 processor to feature a dedicated AI chip
The Galaxy S10 processor will be Samsung’s first Exynos chip to be produced on its advanced 7nm LPP process that relies on the EUV lithography technology. The process technology improvement will deliver up to 50 percent lower power consumption and a 20 percent gain in performance, according to Samsung.
Samsung is teasing that its next Exynos chip will feature “intelligence from within.” It appears to be a subtle hint at a neural processing unit for the chip. Previous reports have suggested that the Galaxy S10 processor will have a dedicated neural processing unit. It’s expected that the next Exynos processor will have a dual-core artificial intelligence chip. It will enable the Galaxy S10 to perform more complex AI and machine learning tasks.
The new Exynos processor will also be capable of supporting a 5G modem. Consequently, Samsung has been working on the Exynos 5100 modem which will bring 5G capabilities to its devices. It’s said to launch a separate model of the Galaxy S10 which will be 5G-enabled.
Samsung has revealed no further information about this Exynos processor right now. We won’t have to wait for much longer, though, as the official launch has been scheduled for November 14, 2018.
