While Samsung Electronics has been developing its own application processors for consumer electronics for years now, it has always relied on default offerings from ARM Holdings. Nonetheless, it is not a secret that Samsung is developing its own system-on-chips for servers, which may indicate development of an own micro-architecture. As it appears, the latter will target not only servers.

Samsung has been hiring chip developers from various companies (including as big ones as Advanced Micro Devices) for some time now to create a world-class microprocessor development team in its research and development center in Austin, Texas. While Samsung has never publicly revealed any significant details about the nature of the R&D activities or peculiarities of chips in development, it is known that with its custom SoCs it intends to address various markets, including client and server products.

According to unofficial information from ETNews, the next-generation Exynos processors from Samsung will utilize the company's own micro-architecture. Exynos chips are used for consumer electronics, including smartphones and media tablets.

Few design details of the future SoC are known. The unofficial information reveals that the platform under development focuses on maximizing the bus bandwidth between the microprocessor, random access memory as well as NAND flash-based storage. It is believed that maximum bandwidth will ensure performance advantage of Samsung's chips over the rivals.
Should appear in samsung products sometime next year. Samsung is also using cortex a57 next year so the initial version may not be ARM v8.
Most competitive processor market in history, let the games begin!
-> Krait vs. Denver vs. Cortex vs. Samsung uarch vs. Silvermont
