Top specs and features

General info

1.Supports 64-bit
Samsung Exynos 8870

A 32-bit operating system can only support up to 4GB of RAM. 64-bit allows more than 4GB, giving increased performance. It also allows you to run 64-bit applications.

2.Has integrated graphics
Samsung Exynos 8870

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

3.semiconductor size

14nm

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

Best

Apple A12X Bionic

7nm

Performance

1.CPU threads

8

More threads result in faster performance and better multitasking.

2.Uses big.LITTLE technology
Samsung Exynos 8870

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.

3.Uses HMP
Samsung Exynos 8870

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.

Features

1.Has integrated LTE
Samsung Exynos 8870

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

2.bits executed at a time

128 (ARM Cortex-A53)

NEON provides acceleration for media processing, such as listening to MP3s.

Best

MediaTek MT6750S

128

3.VFP version

4 (ARM Cortex-A53)

Vector Floating-Point (VFP) is used by the processor to deliver increased performance in areas such as digital imaging.

Best

MediaTek MT6750S

4.Has dynamic frequency scaling
Samsung Exynos 8870

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

5.Supports hardware-assisted virtualization
Samsung Exynos 8870

It is easier to obtain better performance when using virtualization if it is hardware-assisted.

6.Has NX bit
Samsung Exynos 8870

NX bit helps protect the computer from malicious attacks.
