Among the most anticipated new products of 2021 is the Exynos 2200 chipset, which is being created in cooperation with Samsung and AMD. Just yesterday, the company announced it would like to introduce some kind of new processor with a focus on entertainment and graphics performance. It is logical that many have assumed that the Exynos 2200 is ready and the company will make its presentation on November 19.
Those rumors that previously appeared on the network indicate that the new chip will become a real monster of performance, which will replace the top platforms from Qualcomm and only slightly give way to the current chip from Apple. Today, a network insider with the nickname @FrontTron decided to share information about the performance of pre-release samples of Exynos 2200. At the same time, he does not provide any screenshots and refers to the fact that these are official test results.
So, the source says that there is a “big difference” in the performance of graphics from AMD and the Adreno 660 video accelerator in Snapdragon 888. Naturally, in favor of the first, and this conclusion was made based on the test results in 3DMark. A comparison is also available with the latest flagship chip from Exynos 2100. In particular, it is said that the GPU of the new chipset is 17-20% more stable with an increase in peak load by 31-34%.
The insider focuses on the fact that these are test or pre-release samples of the Exynos 2200 chip; which may still be insufficiently optimized and tuned. Chances are that the final version of the chip will be even more productive. To what extent these predictions are correct, we can tentatively estimate next week. Naturally, provided that the company actually announces the Exynos 2200 on November 19.
Samsung will transfer most branded smartphones to its own Exynos chips
Samsung‘s semiconductor division will double shipments of Exynos processors next year, according to ETNews. Currently, about 20% of Samsung Galaxy smartphones are using Exynos chips.
Exynos chips are also used in smartphones from other manufacturers, but the number of such devices is extremely small. Samsung Exynos’ customer base is mostly exist in Chinese brands like Vivo and Meizu. Recently, Samsung chips have got criticism for not being the most outstanding performance and energy efficiency; as well as overheating under load.
Now that the company has adopted Arm’s original computing cores rather than its own custom ones; the performance of both flagship and mid-range Exynos models has improved markedly; and will probably get even better in the next generations. Insiders say 5G and heat issues will also be addressed in the very near future.
As a reminder, Samsung is partnering with AMD to take mobile graphics performance to the next level. The first brainchild of this partnership will be the Exynos 2200 chip; which will debut in the flagship Galaxy S22 smartphones. Many of Samsung’s next-gen affordable and mid-range devices will also receive proprietary processors. ETNews did not specify whether Samsung will expand the number of markets for Exynos versions of its flagship smartphones.
According to reports, the Exynos 2200 chip will be manufactured using a 5nm process technology. The processor will consist of one 2.9 GHz Cortex-X2 core, three 2.8 GHz Cortex-A710 cores; and four 2.2 GHz energy efficient Cortex-A510 cores. The GPU has a frequency of 1250 MHz.
