Samsung mentioned on Tuesday that it has begun mass manufacturing of its new cellular utility processor Exynos 2200, which can be powering the upcoming Galaxy S22 collection of smartphones.
The chip, made with the corporate’s 4-nanometre EUV node, sports activities a brand new GPU known as Xclipse based mostly on AMD RDNA 2 structure, which Samsung mentioned would supply a “console-level” gaming expertise in smartphones.
Based on the South Korean tech large, Xclipse will supply superior graphic options equivalent to hardware-accelerated ray tracing, which simulates how gentle bodily behaves in the actual world inside the sport, and variable charge shading, the place shading charge in areas of the sport will be lowered to optimise GPU workload.
Xclipse may even include superior multi-IP governor, a function that manages energy effectivity to cut back battery drain for high-resolution video games, Samsung mentioned.
AMD senior vice chairman of Radeon mentioned Xclipse is “the primary results of a number of deliberate generations of AMD RDNA graphics in Exynos SoCs.”
In the meantime, Exynos 2200 additionally comes with an octacore CPU design that makes use of Arm’s new Armv9 CPU cores, which Samsung mentioned have beefed up safety and efficiency over Armv8 cores.
The CPU could have three clusters: The Cortex-X2 flagship core, three Cortex-A710 large core, and 4 Cortex-A510 little cores.
Based on Samsung, Exynos 2200 may even supply upgraded on-device AI due to a brand new neural processing unit (NPU) that has double the efficiency of its predecessor. The NPU can be utilized with the picture sign processor to help the taking of extra real looking footage with the digital camera. The picture sign processor helps 108MP in single digital camera mode, and presents 4K HDR and 8K video recordings.
Exynos 2200 additionally comes with a 5G modem that meets 3GPP Launch 16 commonplace and helps sub-6GHz and mmWave spectrum bands, in addition to EN-DC that group 4G and 5G alerts. The modem presents as much as 10Gbps in most velocity. Security measures in Exynos 2200 embody built-in safe aspect, root of belief and inline encryption for the recollections.
In the meantime, Samsung had earlier teased an announcement in regards to the Exynos 2200 set for January 11, which in the end did not occur, sparking a hearsay of efficiency points.
In a press release to ZDNet, the corporate mentioned: “We’ve timed the announcement after buyer communication. We can’t reply questions which are based mostly on rumours.”
