TSMC’s N4 node will produce 2024 Oppo MariSilicon smartphone SoC 2023

On the internet has surfaced recent facts concerning Oppo’s very first smartphone application program (AP). It will be equipped with a new NPU in addition to its 8-core CPU and 10-core GPU. It is anticipated that the chip would be introduced some time in 2024.

Since 2019, there have been rumblings that Oppo is working on its very own mobile system on a chip. Even if the Chinese phone manufacturer has successfully constructed an ISP in-house, it was rumored that the company’s mobile AP wouldn’t touch stores until 2024. A fresh rumor that surfaced on Weibo and was spread by the well-known leaker Digital Chat Station now reveals some of the device’s technical specifications.

Oppo MariSilicon SoC has an 8-core CPU and 10-core GPU.

According to rumors, the Oppo MariSilicon SoC will include a CPU with 8 cores and a GPU with 10 cores. Although the precise core design is unknown, it is reasonable to presume that it has a 1+3+4 architecture similar to that of the previous generation of access points (APs).

Due to the fact that it has been in the works for quite some time, it will most likely make use of older generation Arm cores, such as the Cortex X2, Cortex-A510, and Cortex-A710. In conclusion, the graphics processing unit (GPU) can be a standard Mali SKU. In addition to that, Oppo has included a next-generation MariSilicon NPU in the package.

It is anticipated that the performance of Oppo’s MariSilicon smartphone SoC will be on par with that of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip. The fact that the device is made on TSMC’s N4 node, which gives it a much-needed competitive edge, is despite the fact that the claim appears a little bit ridiculous for a first-generation product. In addition, a release window in 2024 suggests that it might make its debut concurrently with the Oppo Find X7 series.
