Samsung is one of Asia’s biggest tech companies, but it is not news that the company is struggling with its processor market. The companies processors have performed relatively low than expected and failed miserably to act against their competitor.
However, we already know that Samsung has no intention of backing down. The South Korean giant is reportedly developing a new 5nm LPE or Low Power Early node. But earlier, it was rumored that the company is facing issues with the 5nm node’s mass production. However, the company has now secured an $850 million deal with Qualcomm. According to this deal, the company will fulfill Snapdragon 875 and Snapdragon X60 5G modem for its partner. Now the company has reported that 5nm LPE nodes production has taken off, which will be the first step in Samsung’s journey of producing high and mighty chipsets.
The 5nm LPE process has various advantages over its predecessors. The node offers a 10 percent increase in performance improvement along with a 20 percent power reduction. The nodes utilize the same CPU clock speeds and design as any other processor, but the process node delivers a boatload of benefits for flagship smartphones.
According to sources, Samsung’s new 5nm process node will be much faster and offers more performance increase than its previous 7nm process node. The method used by the company to manufacture the process isn’t anything new, but some improvements suggest that Samsung will include many advances in the new process node. The first chipset to use the new 5nm LPE node will be the Exynos and 2100. The SoC will head against the Snapdragon 875 and take full advantage of the latest ARM’s Cortex-X1 super core.
According to sources, the Exynos 2100 is clocked at 3.00GHz of speeds due to its Cortex-X1 super core. It means that if Samsung manages to optimize cooling for its upcoming flagship smartphones, then the Cortex-X1 could reach even higher frequencies. Samsung is also rumored to mass-produce Snapdragon 875 and Snapdragon X60 5G modems for its competitor Qualcomm, hence there will be some heated competition between the two rivals.
