Samsung could start giving Qualcomm a run for its money

Samsung’s decision to go with its own Exynos 7420 over Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 has been a highly discussed topic these past few months. This decision paired with the fact that the 7420’s 14nm FinFET process enables it to be smaller, draw less power, and generate less heat than the 810’s 20nm process could help significantly boost Samsung’s presence in the semiconductor industry. 

This year, Samsung has become much more than a company that creates excellent mobile displays and mobile RAM, but also a big player in the semiconductor industry when it comes to processors. Or at least, they’re on their way to becoming one. In amongst all the buzz surrounding Samsung’s choice to go with the Exynos 7420 over Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 was the fact that it is produced using a 14nm FinFET process, while the Snapdragon 810 is built using a 20nm process. We’re not semiconductor experts, but what these numbers mean is that the Exynos 7420 is a physically smaller system-on-chip, incorporating the processor, the graphics chip and more into an overall smaller package than the Snapdragon 810’s 20nm design.
