Qualcomm in trouble
Recently Samsung announced that serial production of its new 14nm SoC has already commenced. The new part is going to end up in Samsung Galaxy S6 and a few other devices.
Eight cores of terror
Samsung has announced an updated version of its Exynos 7 Octa processor. Last year it announced a 64-bit, ARMv8 processor based on a 20nm design, but these new chips will be 14nm processors.
Beats Intel and Apple
Fudzilla has found out that the Samsung Galaxy S6 will be one of the first devices to boast a non-Intel chip build around a 14nm process.
Reduces footprint, boosts efficiency
Samsung has announced that it is now mass producing Embedded Package on Package (ePoP) memory, which greatly increases density and efficiency.
Getting crowded, isn't it?
Nvidia appears to be the latest chip designer to use Samsung’s and GlobalFoundries’ 14nm node. The company won’t be alone, as the same node will be used by Apple, Qualcomm, AMD and of course Samsung.
Tried it, didn’t like it, will use its own SoC instead
Samsung appears to have ditched Qualcomm for the upcoming Galaxy S flagship. According to Bloomberg, the company will use its own silicon instead.
16GB+ graphic cards possible
Samsung has announced that is has started the mass production of its 8 Gb GDDR5 chips in 20nm.
Still no availability date
While the 2.5-inch form-factor 850 EVO SSD from Samsung is already available and quite popular, it appears that Samsung is also working on a couple of other form-factors, including mSATA and M.2, based on the same design.
With 64-bit Snapdragon 615 or 32-bit Exynos 5430
Samsung has now finally and officially unveiled its Galaxy A7 which comes with 6.3mm thick metal unibody and will be available in two different versions, with a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC or a 32-bit Exynos 5430 SoC.
