Samsung today officially announces the partnership with the ARM for the high-performance computing 7nm & 5nm FinFET process based chipset. The collaboration with the ARM will bring the new Exynos chipset based on 7nm LPP process which can be clocked up to 3.0 GHz and will be based on Cortex A76 core.
Samsung will launch the 7nm on LPP (Low Power Plus) & 5nm on LPE (Low Power Early) base processor which will enable 3GHz+ clock speed on new Cortex A76 cores. Initially, the 7nm process chipset will go under production by the second half of 2018 whereas the new EUV lithography process will be done by first half of 2019.
With the help of EUV Lithography, one can achieve smaller and more powerful 5nm LPE processor when compared with 7nm LPE chipset. The new 7nm LPP with Cortex A76 cores processor will give 35% better performance than Cortex A75 cores which is clocked at 2.8GHz based on a 10nm process with 40% lesser battery consumption.
Arm and Samsung Foundry have collaborated on a large number of chips using Artisan physical IP on Samsung Foundry process technologies,” said Kelvin Low, vice president of marketing, Physical Design Group at Arm. “Samsung Foundry’s 7LPP and 5LPE nodes are innovative process technologies which will meet our mutual customers’ needs to deliver the next generation of advanced system-on-chips (SoCs) from mobile to hyperscale datacenters.”
