Samsung Electronics today unveiled Exynos 2200 SoC for its flagship devices. The Samsung Xclipse graphics processing unit is based on AMD RDNA 2 architecture. The Exynos 2200 will offer the greatest mobile phone gaming experience, as well as increase the overall experience in social networking apps and photography, thanks to the most cutting-edge Arm-based CPU cores available on the market today and an improved neural processing unit (NPU).
Exynos 2200 SoC specifications
The Exynos 2200 SoC employs a 4-nanometer (nm) resolution EUV (extreme ultraviolet lithography) technology. While the octa-core CPU is 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 a tri-cluster structure.
According to Samsung, the Xclipse inherits powerful graphic features like hardware-accelerated ray tracing (RT) and variable rate shading (VRS) that were previously only accessible on PCs, laptops, and consoles thanks to the high-performance AMD RDNA 2 architecture.
The Exynos 2200 SoC comes integrated with Arm’s latest Armv9 CPU cores which offer a substantial improvement over Armv8 in terms of security and performance
Samsung and AMD partnered to create the industry’s first hardware-accelerated ray tracing on mobile GPU to provide the most immersive visuals and user experiences even on mobile. Variable-rate shading is a GPU workload optimization approach that allows developers to use a reduced shading rate in locations where overall quality will not be compromised. This frees up GPU resources to focus on the areas that matter most to players, resulting in higher frame rates and smoother gameplay.
Furthermore, the Xclipse GPU is equipped with an advanced multi-IP governor (AMIGO), which improves overall performance and efficiency. With an improved NPU, the Exynos 2200 provides more powerful on-device artificial intelligence (AI). In addition to the power-efficient INT8 (8bit integer) and INT16, the NPU now supports FP16 (16bit floating point) for significantly better accuracy.
The Exynos 2200 SoC also has a powerful 3GPP Release 16 5G modem that supports both sub-6GHz and mmWave (millimetre Wave) spectrum bands. The modem may improve the speed up to 10Gbps using E-UTRAN New Radio – Dual Connectivity (EN-DC), which uses both 4G LTE and 5G NR signals.
Samsung’s flagship chipset also includes an Integrated Secure Element (iSE) that stores private cryptographic keys and also serves as a RoT (Root of Trust). In addition, an inline encryption HW for UFS and DRAM has been strengthened to ensure that user data is encrypted and exchanged safely only within the secure zone.
In terms of imaging, the image signal processor (ISP) architecture of the Exynos 2200 has been updated to enable the newest image sensors with up to 200-megapixel resolution (MP). As per Samsung, The ISP enables up to 108 MP in single camera mode and 64+36 MP in dual camera mode at 30 frames per second (fps). For complex multi-camera configurations, it can connect up to seven independent image sensors and drive four at the same time. The ISP can record video in up to 4K HDR (or 8K) quality.
The Exynos 2200’s sophisticated multi-format codec (MFC) supports 8K resolution. It can decode films up to 4K at 240 frames per second or 8K at 60 frames per second, and it can encode videos up to 4K at 120 frames per second or 8K at 30 frames per second. In addition, the MFC includes a power-saving AV1 decoder that allows for extended playback times. The SoC also supports HDR10+, which adds greater dynamic range and depth to the image, as well as refresh rates of up to 144Hz for a more responsive and smoother navigation and gaming experience.
