Samsung has finally announced its most powerful mobile chipset, “Exynos 2200,” for an enhanced gaming experience. The Exynos 2200 is a newly designed mobile processor with a powerful AMD RDNA 2 architecture-based Samsung Xclipse GPU (Graphics Processing Unit).
The Exynos 2200 processor is fabbed using cutting-edge 4nm fabrication similar to the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 and the Dimensity 2000 SoC. The Exynos 2200 features eight CPU cores with a primary high-performance core based on the ARM Cortex-X2 microarchitecture.
In addition, there are three performance cores based on ARM Cortex-A710 microarchitecture and four efficient cores based on ARM Cortex-A510 microarchitecture.
“Built on the most advanced 4-nanometer (nm) EUV (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”, Yongin Park, President of System LSI Business at Samsung Electronics, said in a statement.
According to the company, the Exynos 2200 is one of the first processors to integrate Arm’s latest Armv9 CPU cores, which offer a substantial improvement over Armv8 in terms of security and performance. The upgraded NPU inside it offers 2x performance with FP16 (16bit floating point) support.
The company stated in a statement, “For safekeeping, the Exynos 2200 comes with Integrated Secure Element (ISE) to store private cryptographic keys as well as to play a role as RoT (Root of Trust). Also, an inline encryption HW for UFS and DRAM has been reinforced to have user data encryption safely shared only within the secure domain”.
The Exynos 2200 offers more powerful on-device artificial intelligence (AI) with an upgraded NPU. The octa-core CPU of Exynos 2200 is designed in a tri-cluster structure made up of a single powerful Arm Cortex-X2 flagship-core, three performance and efficiency balanced Cortex-A710 big-cores and four power-efficient Cortex-A510 little-cores.
In addition to that, the redesigned image signal processor (ISP) on the Exynos 2200 can capture and process up to 200MP images in the single-camera mode. It also supports 108MP image capture or a dual-camera setup with a 64MP primary camera and a 32MP secondary camera.
In terms of videos, the Exynos 2200 can encode and decode 4K HDR videos and 8K videos with up to 60fps. The Exynos 2200 is in mass production and will debut inside the Galaxy S22 series, expected to launch sometime in February.
However, India will receive the Exynos 2200 powered Galaxy S22, whereas the markets in the US will get Snapdragon 8 Gen1 powered Galaxy S22.
