Samsung 8-core CPU Will Arrive in 2013

Samsung is reportedly preparing to release an 8-core processor next year, sometime in February. The chip will be displayed at the International Solid State Circuits conference in San Francisco, which runs February 17-21. The currently unnamed chip will be constructed with a 28nm size, and is a combination of both A15 and A7 cores.

Four A15 cores will run at 1.8GHz, while four A7 cores will be clocked at 1.2GHz. Each set of cores is designed for different uses-the faster cores for power and performance, the slower ones for efficiency and battery savings. Even the lesser A7 quad-core set is claimed to be equal in performance to today’s iPhone4s, and the Galaxy Nexus. The A15 cores are said to have up to 5 times the performance of the average smartphone in use today.

The architecture is described by ARM as “big.LITTLE”, and runs one set of quad-cores at a time, never all eight simultaneously. It is possible that this chip will debut in a tablet, possibly the follow-up to the Nexus 10.
