The Samsung Exynos 2200 SoC is closing in on an official reveal, with multiple reports suggesting that the unveiling should happen soon. However, Samsung has since denied reports tipping a November 19 unveiling of the chip. Despite that, we now appear to have among us what is being tipped as early benchmark data, suggesting the kind of performance gains that this chipset may bring to the table.
According to a tweet by user @FrontTron, the Samsung Exynos 2200 SoC will be based on the ARM v9 core architecture, which has been previously tipped as well. According to the data shared in the tweet, the Samsung Exynos 2200 SoC is seemingly offering up to 17-20 percent of sustained higher performance, and up to 34 percent higher peak performance against its predecessor, the Exynos 2100.
While this does not share the exact benchmark numbers, it suggests that the next generation SoC from Samsung can be significantly more powerful than its 2021 version. The Exynos 2100 SoC inside the Samsung Galaxy S21 series returned figures of around 1,050 points in single core performance, as well as 3,500 points in multi-core performance on the Geekbench 5 benchmark test. Such figures may be drastically overhauled by the upcoming Samsung Exynos 2200 SoC.
Interestingly, the Samsung Exynos 2200 is tipped to feature one peak core – the ARM Cortex X2, three Cortex-A710, and four Cortex-A510 efficiency cores. The processor is tipped to be based on the latest generation ARM v9 architecture, and its GPU duties are said to be powered by an AMD RDNA 2 GPU – offering solutions such as variable rate shading (VRS) and ray tracing on phones.
The Galaxy S22 series of phones is expected to be unveiled in early 2022, as is the norm for Samsung. Interestingly, reports have claimed that this year’s flagship Samsung phones will feature the next gen Qualcomm chip in India, and not Exynos. More details should surface closer to launch date.
