The South Korean tech giant's Exynos Auto V9 packs eight ARM Cortex-A76 cores -- which has a max speed of 2.1 GHz -- and will be used to power the German automobile manufacturer's new infotainment system that is set to debut in 2021, the company said.
The chip was designed for advanced infotainment systems that can display content on multiple screens. The V9 can support up to six displays and twelve camera connections for various sub systems.
It also packs an ARM Mali G76 GPU, HiFi 4 audio digital signal processor and an intelligent neural processing unit. It supports LPDDR4 and LPDDR5 DRAM.
It also has a safety island core that supports Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL)-B standards.

V is for infotainment, A is for advanced driving assistance system, and T is for telematics
