Software update to older Exynos 5 Octa chips will bring all the new features

Exynos 5 Octa

After we heard of Samsung’s latest Exynos 5 Octa chip, we felt that devices with older versions of the eight core chipset were a tad unlucky, especially the freshly launched Galaxy Note 3 smartphone which packs the Exynos 5420¬†octa core chip. But according to Meizu, all those features of the upgraded chipset can be triggered onto older versions of the octa core chip with a simple software update. This is great news for users of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the recently launched Meizu MX3 which packs the Exynos 5410 octa core chip.

We’re awaiting confirmation from Samsung on this, but if this is true, devices like the octa core Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy Note 3 will get the HMP (Heterogeneous Multi-Processing) feature we spoke of yesterday. However, if the features are hardware driven like was speculated yesterday, this might not be possible. This new feature will allow all eight cores of the processor to run individually on a priority basis, thus increasing efficiency and performance rapidly.
