Samsung is developing an Exynos 880 chipset, which we saw powering the vivo Y70s 5G earlier today. It’s a 5G chipset that will offer an alternative to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G and 768 for premium mid-range devices.
Leakster Digital Chat Station shared some details about the new chip. It will have two big Cortex-A77 cores and six smaller A55 cores. The GPU is a Mali-G76 (core count is unclear). There should be an integrated 5G modem too, just like the Exynos 980.
|Exynos 880 (unofficial)||Exynos 980||Snapdragon 765G|
|CPU (big cores)||2x A77 at 2.0GHz||2x A77 at 2.2GHz||Kryo 475 Prime at 2.4Ghz + Gold at 2.2GHz|
|CPU (small cores)||6x A55 at 1.8GHz||6x A55 at 1.8GHz||6x Kryo 475 Silver at 1.8GHz|
|GPU||Mali-G76||Mali-G76 MP5||Adreno 620|
|Process||?||8nm LPP||7nm LPP EUV|
Overall, the Exynos 880 appears quite similar to the 980 chip, though with a slightly lower performance potential. The Geekbench result of the Y70s offers an early comparison of CPU power – it’s nearly identical. Whether or not the GPU resources will be scaled down remains to be seen.
The Exynos is fairly close the S765G too, however the Qualcomm chip uses Kryo 475 cores, which are based on the older A76 core (Prime and Gold) and A55 (Silver). They may be clocked higher, but the Geekbench scores we’ve seen so far show that the Exynos has the lead, at least in single-core performance. Of course, Qualcomm will launch the new 768G chip soon.
