Samsung announced Exynos 2200 with Xclipse graphics to compete with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC


Samsung Electronics today unveiled the Exynos 2200 SoC for its flagship devices. The Samsung Xclipse graphics processing unit is based on the AMD RDNA 2 architecture. The Exynos 2200 will deliver the best mobile gaming experience, while increasing the overall experience in social media applications and photography, thanks to the most advanced Arm-based processor cores available on the market today and an enhanced Neural Processing Unit (NPU).

Exynos 2200 SoC Specifications

The Exynos 2200 SoC uses 4 nanometer (nm) resolution EUV (extreme ultraviolet lithography) technology. While the octa-core processor is composed of a single powerful flagship Arm Cortex-X2 core, three large Cortex-A710 cores balanced in performance and efficiency, and four small energy-efficient Cortex-A510 cores in a three-cluster structure. .

According to Samsung, the Xclipse inherits powerful graphics features such as 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 is integrated with Arm’s latest Armv9 processor cores, which offer a substantial improvement over Armv8 in terms of security and performance.

Samsung and AMD have partnered to create the first hardware-accelerated ray tracing on mobile GPUs to deliver the most immersive visuals and user experiences even on mobile. Variable rate shading is a GPU workload optimization approach that allows developers to use reduced rate shading in places where overall quality will not be compromised. This frees up GPU resources to focus on the areas that matter most to gamers, resulting in higher frame rates and smoother gameplay.

Additionally, 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 artificial intelligence (AI) on the device. In addition to energy-saving INT8 (8-bit integer) and INT16, the NPU now supports FP16 (16-bit floating point) for significantly better accuracy.

The Exynos 2200 SoC also features a powerful 3GPP Release 16 5G modem that supports sub-6GHz and mmWave (millimeter wave) spectrum bands. The modem can improve speed up to 10 Gbps by 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 embedded Secure Element (iSE) that stores private cryptographic keys and also serves as a RoT (Root of Trust). In addition, an inline encryption hardware for UFS and DRAM has been strengthened to ensure that user data is encrypted and securely exchanged only within the secure area.

In terms of imaging, the Exynos 2200’s Image Signal Processor (ISP) architecture has been updated to enable the latest image sensors with up to 200 megapixel (MP) resolution. According to Samsung, the ISP allows 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 setups, it can connect up to seven independent image sensors and drive four at the same time. The ISP can record video in quality up to 4K HDR (or 8K).

The Exynos 2200’s sophisticated multi-format codec (MFC) supports 8K resolution. It can decode movies at up to 4K at 240fps or 8K at 60fps, and it can encode video at up to 4K at 120fps or 8K at 30fps. Additionally, the MFC includes an energy-saving AV1 decoder that allows for extended play 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 smooth browsing and gaming experience.
