Exynos ist der Name des direkt von Samsung entwickelten Chipsatzes. This chipset is an ARM-based chipset and is a chipset widely used by phones manufactured by Samsung.
Is the Exynos chipset also used by other vendors?
There is actually an intention of Samsung, so that Exynos can be used in other vendors such as Asus, Xiaomi, und andere. Only, this Samsung move was blocked by Qualcomm due to patent problems. This makes Exynos unable to be used by other manufacturers and is only used on Samsung phones.
A Brief History of Exynos
Exynos itself was present in 2010 with its first product, the Exynos 3. The Chipset was first used on the first generation Samsung Galaxy S devices. Im 2011, the Exynos 4210 is present on the Samsung Galaxy SII. After that, Samsung presents another Exynos chipset.
The Exynos itself has a fairly complicated naming. The Exynos chipset’s naming and tiers are quite difficult to categorize. Because Samsung does not simplify the chipset product line directly.
If removing the chipset, Samsung often gives the number name after the Exynos number. It’s just that sometimes this naming is quite difficult to categorize or be given an explanation. An example is the Exynos 5 comes with two generations and a different fabrication process. Not to mention the four digits behind one number after Exynos.
To simplify the types of Exynos chipsets, let’s just take the Exynos chipset into two categories. The first category is Exynos that is based on an ARMv7 architecture the second category is Exynos that is based on the ARMv8 architecture. ARMv7 and ARMv8 are processor architecture instructions so benchmark manufacturers like Samsung in making chipsets.
Arten von Exynos-Chipsätzen
1. ARMv7 Exynos
The Exynos based on the ARMv7 architecture set consists of 5 different chipset types. The five chipsets come with different fabrication processes. Beispielsweise, the first one is the based 45 nm fabrication There are Exynos 3 Single 3110 and Exynos 4 Dual 4212.
There is also an Exynos chipset built with 32 nm fabrication. In this category, there are chipsets such as Exynos 4 Quad 4412 and Exynos 5 Dual 5250. There is also a chipset built with a 20 nm fabrication like the Exynos 5 Hexa 5430.
