Samsung Unveils Exynos 2200 Processor with AMD RDNA 2 Architecture-Based Graphics

Samsung has announced the release of its new flagship Exynos 2200 processor. Crafted using 4nm ultraviolet lithography (EUV), the Exynos 2200 features Samsung’s Xclipse graphics processing unit (GPU) based on AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture.

Ray tracing with hardware acceleration on mobile devices

Xclipse GPU is a GPU that is in the intermediate category between console and mobile solutions. Powered by AMD’s high-performance RDNA 2 architecture, Xclipse has enhanced graphics features, including hardware-accelerated ray tracing and variable rate shading, previously only available on PCs, laptops, and consoles.

Ray tracing (RT) accurately mimics the behavior of light in the real world. By calculating the movement and color characteristics of light rays, the technology creates realistic lighting effects. AMD and Samsung have partnered to bring tracing to mobile devices for the first time.

Variable Rate Shading (VRS) is a GPU load optimization solution that allows you to apply low speed shading in areas that have little effect on the overall image quality. This frees up GPU resources for more important areas and improves frame rates.

5G support and improved security

The Exynos 2200 uses Armv9 cores from Arm with improved security and performance options. The octa-core processor consists of three clusters: the flagship Arm Cortex-X2 core, three large Cortex-A710 cores with a balanced ratio of performance and efficiency, and four energy-efficient Cortex-A510 cores.

With an upgraded Neural Processing Unit (NPU), the Exynos 2200 AI enables more parallel computing. In addition, the processor integrates a fast 3GPP Release 16 5G modem that supports high frequencies. E-UTRAN New Radio’s dual connection, which uses 4G LTE and 5G NR signals, can boost data rates up to 10Gbps.

The Exynos 2200 comes with an integrated security element (iSE) for storing private cryptographic keys and acting as a RoT (Root of Trust). The native encryption hardware for UFS and DRAM is further strengthened to protect user data.

New visual experience

The Exynos 2200 image signal processor (ISP) architecture has been redesigned to support up to 200 megapixel (MP) image sensors and up to 4K HDR (or 8K) video recording. At 30fps, the ISP supports up to 108MP in single camera mode and 64+36MP in dual camera mode. The solution supports the connection of up to seven individual image sensors and the simultaneous control of four sensors.

The Exynos 2200 Advanced Multi-Format Codec (MFC) decodes video up to [email protected] or [email protected] and encodes up to [email protected] or [email protected] In addition, the MFC integrates the AV1 power-saving decoder to extend playback time. The solution supports HDR10+ with extended dynamic range and increased image depth, as well as a refresh rate of up to 144 Hz, which ensures smooth transitions in games and applications.
