Samsung Exynos 2200 processor launches
According to the South Korean company, the Exynos 2200 is a newly designed processor made using the company’s 4-nanometer EUV node. This processor has an octa-core CPU design and uses an ARMV9 CPU core. The Exynos 2200 chipset has three CPU clusters. These are – a single Cortex-X2 flagship core, three Cortex-A710 (Cortex-A710) larger cores, and four Cortex-510 (Cortex-A510) smaller cores.
Also, the chipset comes with a Samsung Xclipse GPU based on the AMD RDNA 2 architecture. The company claims that this GPUT will provide a “console-level” gaming experience on smartphones. The Samsung Eclipse Graphics Processing Unit will offer advanced features like hardware-accelerated ray tracing and variable rate shading. The Exynos 2200 processor comes with some more technology. Such as Advanced Multi-IP Governor (AMIGO), which enhances overall performance and efficiency. It also manages ‘battery drain’ or high power efficiency to reduce battery depletion for high-resolution games.
In addition, the chipset comes with an upgraded AI for the new NPU. It is used with the Image Signal processor for more realistic images and the processor supports 106 megapixels in single camera mode with the help of the current ISP and offers 4K HDR and 8K video recording.
In terms of connectivity, the Samsung Exynos 2200 Fast 3GPP release comes with a 16 5G modem, which supports sub-6 GHz and MMWave spectrum bands. It also has e-Uteran New Radio – Dual Connectivity (EN-DC) that uses both 4G LTE and 5G NR signals and can offer speeds up to 10 gigabytes per second (10Gbps).
For security, the Exynos 2200 comes with an Integrated Secure Element (SE) to store private cryptographic keys as well as act as a root of trust (RoT).
Finally, Samsung reports that mass production of Exynos 2200 processors has now begun. However, the company has not explicitly confirmed whether the chipset will be used in the brand’s upcoming Samsung Galaxy S22 series flagship smartphones alongside the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor.
