Today, Samsung and Vivo jointly held a launch event to announce the Exynos 1080 chipset in China. It the first 5nm chipset from the South Korean company built with EUV (Extreme Ultraviolet Lithography) FinFET technology. Just as predecessor Exynos 980 chipset was first seen on the Vivo X30 last year, the upcoming X-series Vivo phones could be the first phones to feature the Exynos 1080.
It goes without saying that to increase the offer better performance, a chip needs to have a greater number of transistors. Compared to Samsung’s 7nm process, the 5nm processor increases the number of transistors by more than 80 precent. Compared to the 8nm LPP (Low Power Plus) process, the 5nm Exynos 1080 delivers 14 percent improved performance and a 30 percent reduction in power usage. In comparison to 7nm DUV (Deep Ultraviolet Lithography), the new chip offers a 7 precent improvement in performance and an 18 precent reduction in power consumption.
