Also while differentiating SD765 and Exynos 980, don't forget Exynos uses advance cortex A77 core while SD 765 uses old A76 core.

Anonymous, 29 Apr 2020Kirin 1020 on A78?
thats a big rumor....lets see...Yes Huawei said that they would directly skip to A78 from A76.
There was an article about it on gsmarena a few weeks back.

It will still take a year or two minimum to see this in their SLSI chipset, but it will likely come.
There is also Imagination Tech (UK) which does produce competitive GPU ip.

>> Actually camera performance is slightly better on Exynos compared to Snapdragon.
But Qualcomm takes the lead in battery life, no thermal throttling, CPU performance, etc.
Anonymous, 28 Apr 2020Meanwhile your comment screams Qualcomm fan. Exynos has had many optimizations for years. ... moreExynos also did 4K60 first but was locked coz competing Qualcomm chip couldn't do it.
AnonD-754814, 28 Apr 2020Will they come up with ARM cortex core ?
Because Note 20 has been seen with a SoC 3+GHz freq... moreI think they are jumping to cortex A78 instead of the A77 on the SD865 plus.
That explains the new architecture rumors.
If yes then this will be on par with Kirin 1020.
most of the people are not even aware that Exynos version is in Europe, they dont know what is Exynos or Snapdragon or Qualcomm....so whats the point?
massive education? :)
Good luck competing with SD865+ then. Unless they will use the stock Cortex-A77 instead of their in-house custom cores or hop onto 5nm process node, there's no way that it will be on par with the SD counterpart in both CPU efficiency & performance.

AnonD-754814, 28 Apr 2020Strongly agree on one thing that Samsung did cheap-out on the GPU core. If they had used 15-... moreIn my opinion, the decision to use fewer cores, but with higher clock rates, has to do with the production yelds of the wafers. This way, fewer chips are wasted, making it more profitable for Samsung, but at the expense of increased heating/power consumption. They had to make a trade-off and decide which way the balance leans.

The same thing is happening in the premium mid-range segment: the Snapdragon 765(G) is built on 7 nm, while the Exynos 980 only uses 8 nm. Samsung is always a bit late, regardless of market segment…
If that trashNos is gonna be 200-300 or more dollar cheaper than the superior snapdragon variant, then maybe but if it will be same priced.... No thanks!!!
Anonymous, 28 Apr 2020And your response brings a massive facepalm to anyone with a brain.... If it is nothing more ... moreEver heard that history repeats itself? Last year SD and Kirin were on 7nm, but Exynos was first on 8nm. Later this year we'll see everybody on 5nm BUT Exynos. Samsung made a few blunders in the past and who's to say it won't make some more? Qualcomm have already announced the jump to 5nm with the X60 modem, so it's only a matter of time before we see an SD 8xx SoC on 5nm from them, skipping 6nm altogether. Unless I see actual progress, I just can't give the Exynos team and products credit anymore.
