Samsung’s newly-announced Exynos 1080 processor is not the company’s flagship chipset, but it still appears to be reaching flagship performance levels. The new Exynos processor is expected to debut inside the Vivo X60 and the Vivo X60 Pro on December 29, and a new leak shows how well the chipset can perform.
The Vivo X60 with codename V2047A has appeared in Geekbench 5 results with the Exynos 1080 processor. The new chipset scored 888 points in the single-core test and 3,244 points in the multi-core test. The single-core performance is similar to the Snapdragon 865+ chipset used in various high-end Galaxy smartphones and tablets. Its multi-core performance is higher than the Snapdragon 865+ (around 3,000 points) and is approaching performance levels of the Snapdragon 888. A Snapdragon 888-equipped device scored 1,135 points in the single-core test and 3,681 points in the multi-core test in a recent leak.
The Exynos 1080 is fabricated using Samsung’s latest 5nm process. It features one Cortex-A78 CPU core clocked at 2.8GHz, three Cortex-A78 CPU cores clocked at 2.6GHz, and four Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2GHz. It uses ARM’s Mali-G78 GPU with 10 cores. The chipset supports LPDDR4X and LPDDR5 RAM, UFS 3.0 and UFS 3.1 storage, up to 200MP camera sensors, and 144Hz refresh rate screens.
Samsung has equipped its latest Exynos processor with a dedicated NPU for faster AI and machine learning tasks. It also has an integrated 5G modem with support for sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G. Other features include GPS, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, up to 4K 60fps video recording, and 4K HDR10+ video playback. Surprisingly, no Galaxy device has been leaked yet that uses the Exynos 1080.
