Samsung’s brilliance in electronics cuts across all major aspects of production. From display, to node process, to optics and so on.
One area of production Samsung has not seen much joy, is the chipset segment. Samsung develops its own inhouse Exynos chipsets for some variants of its smartphone lineups.
But, most smartphone users have been sceptical about the Exynos chipset when compared to the Snapdragon premium offerings.
This is due to the subper performance of the exynos chipsets when compared to the Snapdragon chips.
This narrative is about to change with the Exynos 2200, a chipset being taunted by various leaks to be more powerful than the yet to be launched Snapdragon 895.
Since the Exy 2200 and the SD 895 are yet to be launched, we can only compare their stats for now.
The architecture behind the incoming Exynos 2200.
The major talking point of the Exynos 2200 is the presence of the AMD RDNA2 6-Core GPU.
If you are wondering why this is a big deal, take this for instance: “the upcoming Steam Deck, capable of playing AAA PC games, features 8-core RDNA2 graphics” notebook
With the presence of this GPU on the Exynos 2200, a performance leap of upto 40% over the present SD888 is expected.
Considering the current limitations of the in-house Adreno GPU being used by Snapdragon.
We are not expecting a similar jump of upto 40% in GPU performance from the SD895 over the SD 888.
With the above realities, the SD895 is already looking like a second best to the incoming EXYNOS 2200.
Meanwhile, there is going to be a major boost in the CPU performance of the Exynos 2200 too.
The Exy 2200 is expected to boast of a new generation of three-cluster architecture.
The Exy 2200 is expected to have a Cortex-X1 super core, 3 Cortex-A78 cores, and 4 Cortex-A55 small cores – gizchina
Expected launch of the Exynos 2200.
The Exy 2200 is expected to launch this year, and may power the next generation of Samsung galaxy Sseries in 2022.
