In the global smartphone chip market, there are four major players. We have Apple Bionic, Qualcomm, Samsung, and MediaTek. While Bionic chips are strictly for iPhones, Qualcomm, Samsung, and MediaTek produce chips for Android smartphones. Since Qualcomm, Samsung, and MediaTek share the same market, they are in serious competition with each other. Before now, Qualcomm has been the clear leader, especially in the flagship end. However, since the arrival of the Dimensity lineup, Qualcomm has work to do. In addition, the reports of the Exynos 2200 so far show that Qualcomm may have even more work to do.
With the continuous rise of MediaTek chips in the past two years, although it has failed to launch flagship products so far this year, it has still won the largest market. Presently, Mediatek is giving Qualcomm a good run for its money. Only the Samsung camp is at a disadvantage, but this situation may end pretty soon.
According to relevant sources in the industry chain, Samsung’s next-generation Exynos 2200 flagship chip will be official this year. It will come with an AMD RDNA architecture GPU, and the overall performance will improve by leaps and bounds.
Exynos 2200 will do battle with Snapdragon 895
Today, @i冰宇宙 (a Weibo leakster), claims that he has seen the structure diagram of the Exynos 2200 chip. From these drawings, he reveals that the chip will come with a 6-core RDNA2 architecture GPU. Furthermore, there are reports that this configuration will help the chip significantly improve its performance.
A few days ago, we had a report that shows the running score of the Exynos 2200 flagship chip. The report shows that the GPU of the chip has a Wild Life test score of 8134 on the 3D Mark. This score is 40% ahead of the Snapdragon 888. According to reports, the improvement of the Snapdragon 895 relative to the SD888 will not be up to 40%. This means that the Exynos 2200 will also beat the Snapdragon 895 SoC in this regard.
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 have a Cortex-X1 super core, 3 Cortex-A78 cores, and 4 Cortex-A55 small cores.
In addition, previous news also said that thanks to the combination of new generation technology and AMD RDNA architecture, Exynos 2200 will also open up mobile phones, tablets, and PCs, and can also exert strong strength on notebooks.
