It’s been a while we have heard rumors about Samsung’s upcoming Exynos chipset, and it was rumored to be delayed even further due to global chip shortage. There were many speculations about the chipset when Samsung announced to merge with AMD. Striking out all the confusion, they have officially announced their new and most premium smartphone processor, the Exynos 2200. This chipset is expected to change the way of mobile gaming by providing console-quality graphics as well as enhancing the overall experience in social media apps and photography. The Exynos 2200 is already in production, which means it might be on the queue to be used in the upcoming Galaxy S22 series, expected to be unveiled in a couple of weeks. Scroll till the end to know more about the Exynos 2200 chipset and its performance and features. So, let’s get started.
“Built with the most advanced 4-nanometer extreme ultraviolet lithography process, and combined with cutting-edge mobile, GPU, and NPU technology, Samsung has crafted the Exynos 2200 to provide the finest experience for smartphone users,” said Yongin Park, President of System LSI Business at Samsung Electronics.
The Exynos 2200 features an octa-core CPU with tri-cluster architecture on the CPU side. Its array of cores includes the newly launched Arm Cortex-X2 core for powerful performance, three Cortex-A710 cores for optimal performance, and four Cortex-A510 cores for power efficiency. This diverse combination will help optimize the user experience by delivering powerful performance and stability based on power efficiency.
The Exynos 2200 is also designed for an unprecedented mobile gaming experience with the high-performance AMD RDNA 2 architecture. The Xclipse GPU inherits advanced graphics features such as hardware-accelerated ray tracing and variable rate shading (VRS), which were only available on PCs and consoles. The VRS will help optimize the GPU workloads by applying lower shading rates in areas that will not affect visual quality. With enhanced NPU design, the chipset will improve on-device AI performance that enables a smarter experience on your smartphone.
The Exynos 2200’s advanced image signal processor is highly optimized to support resolution of up to 200MP and zero shutter lag at 108MP. The Multi-Format Codec in the Exynos 2200 will help you to record 8K videos at 30fps. It is also capable of decoding 4K videos at up to 240fps and 8K videos at up to 60fps, which will allow you to create your own film on your smartphone with great ease. It will also support a high refresh rate of up to 144Hz that enables smoother display transition and allows you to get immersed in what is being displayed on the screen.
There are some leaks and rumors that Samsung Galaxy S22 will get two models. One with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset and the other with Exynos 2200 chipset. In Geekbench 5, the Snapdragon model scores 1226 points in single-core operations and 3462 points with multi-core. On the other hand, the Exynos 2200 scores 1014 points, which is far behind Snapdragon single-core operations, but with multi-core, it scores 3415 points, which is almost similar to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. In terms of gaming performance, the Exynos 2200 performs better than Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 with AMD RDNA 2, which is truly a piece of good news for gamers.
A poll was created by a reliable Leaker Ice universe, in which he asked, and we quote, “For European Samsung users, do you want Galaxy S22 to adopt Exynos or Snapdragon in Europe?” The majority went for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 option, which attracted 81.3 percent of the vote. It seems like most of the users are far away from trusting the Exynos 2200.
We all need a smartphone that delivers the ultimate performance to get our work done. By keeping that in mind smartphone manufacturers are focusing on improving their chipset which will deliver the performance we want. But the point is how much performance we need and how much we can adopt from the latest Exynos 2200. What do you think of this new Samsung processor?
