Samsung Exynos 7420: 18 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. Has integrated LTE

The system on a chip (SoC) has an integrated LTE cellular chip. LTE is capable of downloading at faster speeds than older, 3G technology.

8. 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.

12. 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.
