Samsung has introduced a brand new Heterogeneous Multi-Processing (HMP) solution for its not too long ago unveiled Exynos 5 Octa chips.

The newest transfer via the South Korean major is alleged to be the result of the criticism from rivals that claimed the Exynos 5 SoCs isn’t actual octa-core as it could actually simplest use four cores without delay. alternatively, the corporate claims that with addition of the most recent HMP solution for the Exynos 5 Octa chips can maximize the advantages of the ARM giant.LITTLE know-how.

As per Samsung, HMP solution is the highly effective use model for ARM big.LITTLE know-how, as it might probably use all bodily cores without delay. The software threads that include high priority or excessive computational intensity will also be performed with the aid of the Cortex-A15 cores while the threads with much less precedence will also be allocated to the Cortex-A7 cores.

Commenting on the announcement, Taehoon Kim, vice president of device LSI marketing, Samsung Electronics mentioned, “it is usually assumed that the big CPU will do all of the efficiency-vital work, alternatively, energy-efficient little cores can handle many vital workloads all on their very own, so the workload is balanced inside the system.”

Samsung expects the brand new Exynos 5 Octa chips with HMP answer will probably be to be had to customers by way of this fall 2013. there is no phrase about which upcoming tool will function the brand new Exynos processor with HMP answer.
