Samsung demonstrated a number of new semiconductor technologies and chips at the System LSI Tech Day 2023 event held today. The protagonist of the event is none other than the Exynos 2400 processor. This new chip will power some models of the Samsung Galaxy S24 which will be sold in some markets. The Exynos 2400 is a 4nm chip that brings a 70% faster CPU and has an AMD RDNA3-based Xclipse 940 GPU.

Samsung Exynos 2400

Samsung has been working on the Exynos 2400 chip for some time now. According to the company, this new chip is a significant improvement over its predecessor, the Exynos 2200. The Exynos 2400 comes with a 10-core CPU configuration. It includes a high-performance Cortex-X4 core clocked at 3.1GHz, two Cortex-A720 cores clocked at 2.9GHz, three Cortex-A720 cores clocked at 2.6GHz, and four Cortex-A520 cores clocked at 1.8GHz. The chip is constructed using an improved version of Samsung Foundry’s 4nm fabrication process, which now boasts a 75% yield rate. For every chip launch, there are some aspects like the CPU, GPU, AI and a few others which catch the attention of users. Let us now take a look at other details of this new flagship chip from Samsung.

Samsung Exynos 2400 details

CPU

Samsung said the Exynos 2400’s CPU performance is 70% faster than the Exynos 2200. The company also claims that its AI processing power is 14.7 times faster.¬†The Exynos 2400 CPU is said to consist of a single high-performance Arm Cortex-X4 clocked at 3.1GHz. This chip also has two Cortex-A720 cores at 2.9GHz and another two A720s at 2.6GHz. It further comes with four power-efficient Cortex-A520 cores that clocks up to 1.8GHz. This differs from the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3‚Äôs rumoured eight-core, 1+2+3+2 design. The Exynos 2400 is expected to offer maximum performance with very little or no throttling.

GPU

In terms of GPU, the new chip comes with the Xclipse 940 GPU based on AMD’s latest GPU architecture RDNA3. According to Samsung, this chip¬†offers double the graphics performance of its predecessor, the Exynos 2200. The Xclipse 940 GPU has 12 GPU cores, which will provide a harmonious blend of power and efficiency

The Korean company claims that the Xclipse 940 GPU delivers¬†improved gaming and ray tracing performance. It also showed off the Exynos 2400’s vastly improved ray tracing capabilities through a live demonstration during the event.¬†It enhances the realism of the game with ray tracing technology. This includes global illumination, more accurate reflections and shadow rendering.

AI

In terms of AI, Samsung did a lot of work on its latest flagship processor. Exynos 2400 has optimized AI performance specifically for a mobile phone. The phones can now use the chip capabilities to generate text and images. With regards to AI, Yong-In Park, President of Samsung Electronics and Head of System LSI Business, has this to say

Generative AI has quickly become the most important trend this year. It requires more powerful underlying technologies to process data and make AI a reality. We are paving the way for a new era of active AI with the Samsung Systems LSI Humanoid platform. It seamlessly integrates our capabilities across a wide range of logic semiconductors, from powerful computing IP and connectivity solutions to simulated human five-dimensional A primary sensory sensor.

Connectivity

The Exynos 2400 is equipped with the Exynos 5300 modem. This modem supports 5G networks with up to 10Gbps maximum downlink speeds. Also, it’s compatible with mmWave and sub-6GHz networks, ensuring versatile connectivity options.

Conclusion

The Samsung Exynos 2400 is a significant improvement over its predecessor, the Exynos 2200. We also expect this new flagship chip to offer maximum performance with little or no throttling. The chip features a 10-core CPU configuration, an AMD RDNA3-based Xclipse 940 GPU, and versatile connectivity options. The Exynos 2400 is expected to launch in Q4 of 2023, and it will be interesting to see how it performs against its competitors.
