Most certainly not. The sensor in the Note 8 does not have the internal (internal to the sensor) fast ram that’s required for the 960 FPS.

As I remember it's is the snapdragon processor that is the problem, Exynos is OK but because of the snapdragon limitations neither model got it

Not true at all. For instance, the Sony Xperia XZs and XZ1 both have Snapdragon 835s in them.
It’s because of the camera sensor.
They use the Sony IMX400 sensor.

The super slow motion functionality is made possible by world’s first memory stacked CIS.

details of its 3-layer stacked CMOS image sensor (CIS) technology at ISSCC 2017 (90 nm generation back-illuminated CIS top chip, 30 nm generation DRAM middle chip, and a 40 nm generation image signal processor (ISP) bottom chip).

Note it’s a 3 layer, stacked sensor with an internal high speed memory module sandwiched in the center and the ISP combined with it.

The Samsung S9 (Plus) uses the IMX345 (or Samsung’s equivalent) which uses the same technology as the IMX400.

So as I said in my previous post, the Note 8 won’t see any 960fps video because the camera sensor can’t do that.

BTW, the Samsung’s S9 (Plus) with the snapdragon chips have the 960fps video recoding capacity so lack of the ability to record 960fps video is not because of the snapdragon chip.

Not necessarily true. While I don't know specifications I do know that different generations of the same chip can have different options. The s8 and note 8 don't support T-Mobiles new 600mhz (or whatever) spectrum but the S8 active does, even though they both have the 835.

?? We’ve gone from video to network. Please try to stay on the same page. :p

I’m talking SPECIFICALLY about the 960fps video and nothing else regarding different chips.

Chill dude. I stated that different generations of the same chip can have different specifications and options. Therefore it would stand to reason that next generation chips would have different capabilities than previous models. That includes not just network but also camera.
Note 8 has the 835, S9 and note 9 have the 845. Different chips means different capabilities. The 960 fps might have different requirements than what the note 8 is capable of doing.

And, as I mentioned, the Xperia XZ1 has a 835 and the XZs has a 820 and both have 960fps recording. Also as I mentioned, in the case of the Note 8 it’s (should be obvious now) not a case of the 835 not being able to handle it, it’s the camera CIS (sensor) in the Note 8 not able to record in the format. :p

So I reread the first post, eyes glazed over again that why I don't remember what you wrote. Cliff notes, otherwise all I see is memories of algebra which I failed, I also failed photography.
