After a week's delay, Samsung has officially announced its new flagship smartphone processor - the Exynos 2200 - using the company's 4nm EUV node.
The chipset packs 3 CPU clusters, including a Cortex-X2 flagship core, three Cortex-A710 cores, and four Cortex-A510 cores. For graphics, it comes with the Samsung Xclipse GPU based on the AMD RDNA 2 architecture, which Samsung claimed will offer a "console-level" gaming experience as it has features like hardware-accelerated ray tracing and variable rate shading.
It uses an advanced multi-IP governor (AMIGO) to enhance the overall performance and efficiency while reducing battery drain for intensive games. Samsung has also upgraded its AI for the ISP (image signal processor), which supports 108MP in single camera mode as well as 4K HDR and 8K video recordings.
The processor adopts a 3GPP Release 16 5G modem that supports sub-6GHz and mmWave spectrum bands. Its E-UTRAN New Radio – Dual Connectivity (EN-DC) supports both 4G LTE and 5G NR signals with a boost speed of up to 10Gbps. As for security, it comes with Integrated Secure Element (iSE) to store private cryptographic keys, while doubling as RoT (Root of Trust).
Samsung says that the Exynos 2200 is now in mass production and we expect to see it powering the upcoming Galaxy S22.
