Samsung’s ”Exynos 2200” is finally here. It was announced on January 11 as being the company’s fastest mobile processor, but was delayed without any notice to the fans.
The chipset is a result of the collaboration between Samsung and the California-based semiconductor company AMD. It is the first mobile chip to feature AMD’s RDNA 2 graphic.
The RDNA is the same technology that is used for high-tech gaming consoles. This means that Samsung is aiming to provide its users with a better gaming experience with the next-generation processor.
The collaboration between the two companies was announced back in 2019. Gaming fans have been waiting to get a glimpse of the powerful chip.
The octa-core CPU of the new Exynos 2200 has one high-powered Cortex-X2 “flagship core,” three Cortex-A710 cores for balanced performance, and four more efficient Cortex-A510 cores. Compared to this Apple’s existing smartphone chip, the A15 is a 6-core chipset with 2 cores Avalanche at 3223 MHz and 4 cores Blizzard at 1820 Mhz.
There were also certain leaks about the specs of the chipset by Tech expert Ice Universe on Twitter, who is considered to be one of the most reliable sources in the world of technology.
According to Ice Universe, the performance of the new Exynos 2200 is not that impressive when compared to other chips of the leading manufacturers. No stats or figures were provided though, that came out of the unnamed test, which questions the credibility of the claims. The tweets were deleted shortly after being posted.
The updated chip is expected to feature in the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S22, which should be released in mid-2022.
The newly introduced GPU is called the Xclipse 920 GPU. Its AMD RDNA2 graphics cores will allow hardware-based ray tracing technology and variable rate shading. The chip may not be as revolutionary for gamers as Samsung claims, but it is a benchmark collaboration, bringing the latest technology into mobile processors.
