This is the first time that Samsung’s processors will be used in Hyundai cars, so it’s a big step for the South Korean firm.
The Exynos Auto V920 chip from Samsung’s chip design arm, System LSI, succeeds the Exynos Auto V9.
It performs better because it has a 10-core CPU and a more powerful GPU and NPU and uses the CPU cores from ARM for 1.7x. Although Samsung has not said this might be the Cortex-X4, Cortex-A720, and Cortex-A520. The new Exynos Auto chip also features support for LPDDR5 DRAM.
The Exynos Auto V920 chip features a 2.7x faster NPU (Neural Processing Unit). NPU which recognises objects from the camera feeds to support advanced driving assistance features. It features built-in support for 5G, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and USB Type-C connectivity.
Jae Geol Pyee, Executive VP of Sales & Marketing, System LSI, said: “We are thrilled to be collaborating with Hyundai Motor, a prominent global mobility manufacturer, and we anticipate that this partnership will further solidify our position in the automotive infotainment space. Through close collaboration with our global customers and ecosystem partners, we will continue to create state-of-the-art automotive chip solutions that offer a safe and enjoyable mobility experience. “
