Samsung announced the long-awaited Exynos 2200 today, which is already undergoing mass production. The key feature of this SoC is the AMD-based RDNA 2 GPU instead of the usual Mali GPU. Samsung calls it Xclipse GPU. Along with it, we will get to see the latest high-performance ARM cores along with the usual efficiency cores.
For manufacturing, Samsung has developed a 4nm EUV (Extreme Ultraviolet Lithography) process for better power efficiency and squeezing in RDNA2 based GPU and an upgraded NPU. Out of the box, it will also come with 5G.
Xclipse is the first Mobile GPU made in collaboration with AMD. Xclipse stands for Exynos Eclipse, as Samsung mentions. Thanks to their collaborations, we might see competent Ray tracing for the first time in mobile phones. Other than graphical performance, the new Xclipse GPU will also bring a multi-IP governor or AMIGO, to improve performance and efficiency.
As for the CPU, we get an octa-core setup, which comes with ARMv9 architecture. This time, the Exynos is coming with a single power core, three high-performance cores, and 4 efficiency cores. The single-core is a Cortex-X2 flagship core, the three high-performance cores are based on Cortex-A710 big cores, and the four efficient cores are based on Cortex-A510 little cores.
The Exynos 2200 also comes with an upgraded ISP, which can support 200MP sensors. You can record 108MP with a single sensor at 30FPS. For video recording, you can record up to 8K at 30FPS.
As of now, the SoC is under mass production, and might not come to the S22 series this year.
