Exynos 2200 from Samsung with graphics from AMD introduced

The first mention of the smartphone chipset, the Samsung Exynos 2200, began in the first half of last year. The biggest attraction is the new graphics core, which is the result of cooperation between the South Korean company and AMD.

We have known for a long time that the new processor will be introduced in January. However, the specific date was not known. It’s official now and the powerful Exynos 2200 is out in the world. Information about him was provided by the portal XDA-Developers.

The chipset will power the incoming flagship series Samsung Galaxy S22. These models will probably come in two versions again and will also offer the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor from Qualcomm. Samsung mostly supplies Exynosa to our market, but we do not yet know how it will be in this case. We also don’t know which of these two chipsets is more powerful or economical in the real world. Only real experience will show that.

We will remind you that Exynosy in two-year-old Samsungs lagged behind the Snapdragon processor quite significantly. The Galaxy S21 series eased that difference, but Qualcomm’s processor was still a hair better.

Exynos 2200 with graphics core from AMD

Let’s go back to the new processor. The Exynos 2200 comes with a new Xclipse 920 graphics core, which should be the main star. It was on this part that Samsung cooperated with AMD, which is known for its processors and graphics cards for PCs. The company announced their cooperation at the beginning of last year.

The new graphics are expected to offer significantly higher graphics performance compared to the Mali-G78MP14, which includes last year’s Exynos 2100. It is also Samsung’s first chipset with a RDNA 2-based GPU from AMD. RDNA is a code name for the current AMD Radeon graphics architecture, RDNA 2 is used, for example, in Sony PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X consoles or AMD Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards.

Options that haven’t been here before

The integration of this architecture into the mobile chip should enable an even better visual experience when playing games, but the performance is also suitable for more common activities with a smartphone, which will again be a bit smoother. Graphics for the first time on a smartphone will enable Ray Tracing (a technology that simulates how light physically behaves in the real world) and VRS (allowing developers to use lower shading rates in areas that do not affect quality, resulting in a higher frame rate).

As for the CPU itself, the Exynos 2200 is similar in many respects to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor. Both switched to the ARMv9 architecture, which was introduced in March 2021. efficient Cortex-A510 cores. The exact frequencies of specific cores have not yet been published.

The NPU (Neural Processing Unit) part has also been improved. Simply put, it is actually an accelerator of artificial intelligence and machine learning. According to the manufacturer, NPU performance has doubled. For example, smartphones use it to better optimize battery consumption and learn user habits. The current leader in this area is the Tensor chip, which is found in the new Pixel 6 smartphones. We will see how the novelty from Samsung will compete with it.

New camera capabilities

The chipset supports camera resolutions up to 200 MP, in dual camera mode it supports a resolution of 64 + 32 MP. It can connect up to seven separate sensors, while 4 of them can control simultaneously. This could open the door for more advanced photo capabilities of the new models. There is also support for 8K video recording at 60 frames per second and 4K at 240 fps.
