Samsung Exynos 2200 Parameters
Prior to this, we heard too much about Samsung’s self-developed Exynos 2200 processor. The leaked info showed that the CPU adopts a 1+3+4 core design. The super core has a clock speed of 2.52GHz, the large core clocks at 2.50GHz, and the small core’s frequency is 1.73GHz. The CPU part of the chip will use the ARM v9 architecture. The SoC will also integrate the AMD RDNA 2 architecture core display. The graphics performance is expected to be equal to that of the Apple A15 chip, with 384 stream processors and a frequency of up to 1.31GHz.
According to BusinessKorea, the Exynos 2200’s GPU is developed by AMD and adopts the latest RDNA2 architecture. Previously, Samsung Electronics used Arm’s Mali GPU with low power consumption as the design goal for the Exynos chip. But technical experts pointed out that its performance is better than that of Qualcomm’s Adreno.
In addition, Samsung Electronics’ “The new GPU is expected to resolve the problems of the Exynos 2100. We intend to sharpen our competitiveness by loading GPUs for games into mobile devices.”
Samsung Electronics plans to increase the competitiveness of its APs with the Exynos 2200. According to market research firm Counterpoint, Samsung Electronics ranked fifth in the smartphone AP market in the third quarter of 2021 with a 5% market share, down 5% points from 10% in the same period in 2020.
As for the launch postpone, the company said it plans to launch the Exynos 2200 in late January or early February before the Galaxy S22 goes on sale, stressing that there are no issues with its production and performance. Moreover, this chip aims at gaming. So if there is a heat dissipation problem similar to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, it can’t handle this task. So maybe it’s better to push back the launch time but come in with a final product.
