Samsung Exynos 5 Octa 5420: 24 facts and highlights

1. total clock speed

2. RAM speed

It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.

3. semiconductor size

A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.

4. CPU threads

More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.

5. GPU clock speed

The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
533MHz(ARM Mali T628 MP6)

6. Has integrated graphics

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

7. GeekBench result

This is a cross-platform benchmark that measures the performance of the CPU. (Source: Primate Labs, 2017)

8. maximum memory bandwidth

This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.

9. 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.

11. memory channels

More memory channels increases the speed of data transfer between the memory and the CPU.

12. Has dynamic frequency scaling

Dynamic frequency scaling is a technology that allows the processor to conserve power and reduce noise when it is under a light load.

14. Uses HMP

Heterogeneous Multi-Processing (HMP) is a more advanced version of big.LITTLE technology. In this setup, a processor can utilise all cores at the same time, or just a single core for low-intensity tasks. This can provide powerful performance or increased battery life respectively.

20. floating-point performance

Floating-point performance is a measurement of the raw processing power of the GPU.
0.1TFLOPS(ARM Mali T628 MP6)

21. front-end width

The CPU can decode more instructions per clock (IPC), meaning that the CPU performs better
