Samsung today announced that it has started mass production of the new Exynos 7 Quad 7570 processor that’s built on its 14 nanometer process technology. This processor is meant for budget smartphones and Internet of Things devices. It’s the first mobile application processor in its class that has been designed with the advanced process node, it’s also the first Exynos processor to fully integrate a Cat.4 LTE 2CA modem and other connectivity solutions like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, FM and global navigation satellite system in one chip.
“With Exynos 7570, more consumers will be able to experience the performance benefits of the advanced 14nm FinFET process in affordable devices,” said Ben K. Hur, Vice President of System LSI Marketing at Samsung Electronics.
Samsung was the first processor company in the industry last year to start manufacturing premium mobile processors based on its advanced 14nm FinFET technology. It’s now using that technology to make processors for budget handsets. The Exynos 7570 is the first processor in its class made on 14nm FinFET so it promises amazing performance with great power efficiency.
Exynos 7570 is made up of four Cortex-A53 cores in 14nm. Samsung promises 70 percent improvements in processor performance and 30 percent improvement in power efficiency when compared to its predecessor which was built using the 28nm technology.
Samsung smartphones and IoT devices powered by the Exynos 7570 should start arriving in the coming months.
