Samsung Exynos 5 Octa review: 23 facts and highlights

1. total clock speed

4 x 2.1GHz & 4 x 1.4GHz
MediaTek Helio X30: 2 x 2.6 & 4 x 2.2 & 4 x 1.9GHz

2. semiconductor size

A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.
28nm
Apple A12X Bionic: 7nm

3. Has integrated graphics

With integrated graphics you don’t need to buy a separate graphics card.

90% have it

4. RAM speed

It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
800MHz
AMD Ryzen 7 2800H: 3200MHz

5. Uses big.LITTLE technology

Using big.LITTLE technology, a chip can switch between two sets of processor cores in order to maximise performance and battery life. For example, when playing a game the more powerful cores will be used to increase performance, whereas checking email will use the less powerful cores to maximise battery life.
