Samsung Exynos 7420 Octa Core Overview


This chipset has a Quad Core Cortex A57 with Quad Core Cortex A53 Companion CPU(s) with 2048 KB L2 cache. It belongs to the high end category of chipsets that can easily run most apps out there. The lower clocked CPU is used under battery saving conditions while both of them may be activated under extreme workloads such as gaming, benchmarking or multitasking but it depends on whether App will effectively use all the CPUs or not.

Number of Cores:

This System on Chip has 8 cores clocked at 2.1 GHz. It can provide extremely high levels of performance with maximum efficiency for today's apps and multitasking. Cores of a SoC have a great impact on the performance as they determine the how the workload is distributed across the chipset as well as the maximum number of apps that can run without stuttering on the smartphone/tab etc.


This SoC was built on ARM big.LITTLE architecture.


This SoC was built on 14nm lithography which results in extremely efficient performance.

Maximum Camera Support:

This SoC can effectively support a 20 MP camera or so at max indicating that it is mostly used on high level/flagship mobile devices

64 Bit:

This processor has 64 bit support.

64 bit support allows an SoC to manage more data along its bus width and allow more quantity of RAM to be paired with the chipset. Apps also run more easily and efficently on 64 Bit processors.


This chipset has ARM Mali-T760 Graphics Chip. It has DirectX 11.1 Advanced Graphics API(s) running on it resulting in reduced overheads and silky smooth graphical performance within games and movies. Graphically demanding apps will run properly and easily on this SoC

Phones using this Chipset:

Most popular phones using this chipset are Samsung Galaxy S6 Active etc.

Tablets using this Chipset:

Most popular tabs using this chipset are...
