In the current mobile phone market, apart from Huawei and Apple, only Samsung has been working hard to develop self-developed chips. In the past two years, it has gradually narrowed the gap with Qualcomm chips. Currently, Exynos 1080 and other chips in the mid-range market have outstanding performances. At the same time, Samsung has been exploring new technologies on its flagship chips. The company aims to overtake Qualcomm’s Snapdragon series flagships. Now it seems that the company has really done it with the Samsung Exynos 2200.
A recent exposure of the Samsung Exynos 2200 shows that the GPU of this chip had a Wild Life test score of 8134 on 3D Mark. Comparatively, the running score of Snapdragon 888 GPU on the same database is between 5800 – 6000. This means that the Samsung Exynos 2200leads the Snapdragon 888 by 40%.
Well, the Samsung Exynos 2200 is not to be competing with the Snapdragon 888. This is because Qualcomm is already preparing a new flagship, Snapdragon 895. However, there are reports that Snapdragon 895 SoC can not achieve a 40% increase relative to the SD888. This suggests that the Exynos chip will completely surpass Qualcomm in this generation. Furthermore, Samsung Exynos 2200 also applies AMD RDNA architecture. This significantly improves the performance output of the chip.
It is worth mentioning that in addition to the big jump in GPU performance, Exynos 2200 will also usher in a huge upgrade in CPU. This chip will use a new generation of three-cluster architecture. It will come with a Cortex-X1 super core, three Cortex-A78 medium cores, and 4 Cortex-A55 small cores.
Samsung Exynos 2200 to lock horns with Snapdragon 895
The Samsung Exynos 2200 chip can not only compete with the Snapdragon 895, it will even have the opportunity to sit side by side with the Apple A15. Samsung will open more products based on this chip to cover mobile phones in the future. The company will probably also use this chip on tablets, notebooks, and even all-in-ones. It will form a basis for direct competition with Apple’s various product lines.
According to reports, the Exynos 2200 will come with Samsung’s new video accelerator. This chip will be the basis of the flagships, Galaxy S22 series. According to rumors, the chip will use the 4nm LPE process technology. In terms of its graphics performance, it will bypass the Snapdragon SM8450 chip with Adreno 730 graphics, which will be the successor to the Snapdragon 888 with the Adreno 660 graphics subsystem. Whether this is true or not, we will find out later, but the first conclusions can already be drawn. The results of the Exynos 2200 in the GFXBench benchmark look very optimistic.
