Samsung Exynos 2200 w/ AMD RDNA 2 Graphics to be Introduced on nineteenth November


Samsung is all set to announce its next-gen Exynos 2200 SoC subsequent week with a particular concentrate on gaming. The corporate’s official IG account states: Gaming has come a great distance. What we used to deem “immersive”, relied on a slew of exterior components, like the encircling setting. However the developments of semiconductors have modified that- learn the way, after we transfer to our new dwelling on Nov. nineteenth. Keep tuned, #EverythingChanges.

Contemplating that the corporate’s next-gen Exynos 2200 SoC will leverage AMD’s RDNA 2 graphics IP, we are able to make sure that lots (if not every little thing) will change with this subsequent announcement. Within the newest spherical of checks, the Exynos SoC meant for the Galaxy S22 has gotten a GOS (Recreation Optimizing Service) uplift, assuaging throttling when the service is enabled. It’s value noting that GOS limits the max enhance clock to roughly 50% of the general frequency, nevertheless it’s nonetheless extra performant than the throttled clocks.

The mRDNA GPU on the Exynos 2200 is presently being examined with a lift clock of 1.29GHz. With GOS, the max clocks drop to 600-700MHz, however these figures are nonetheless increased than earlier checks the place the GPU would throttle to 30% of its peak clock. The RDNA 2 GPU is able to critically excessive clock speeds. Two variants of the Exynos 2200 SoC have been in improvement: one with the GPU core clock set to 1.29GHz, and the opposite to 1.58GHz. The catch is that with the latter, the CPU clocks (of the center cores) must be tuned down a bit to maintain the TDP in test:

The height GPU rating with the 1.58GHz variant is reportedly higher resulting from increased retention even after throttling. It seems to be just like the RDNA 2 structure is able to excessive enhance clocks whatever the course of node. In line with the newest rumor, the cellular RDNA 2 design Samsung is utilizing is able to a whopping 1.8GHz with the TDP set to 10W.

The scores of the cellular GPU in GFXBench are as follows:

The graphics processor built-in into the cellular SoC in partnership with AMD options 6 CUs, with an working (enhance?) clock of 1.31GHz. The processor was benchmarked (2nd spherical) in GFXBench, and the next scores have been noticed:

Manhattan 3.1: 170.7 FPS

Aztec Regular: 121.4 FPS

Aztec Excessive: 51.5 FPS

The GFXBench figures from the third spherical of the graphic throttling checks are as follows:

Manhattan 3.1: 127.5 FPS

Aztec Regular: 90.7 FPS

Aztec Excessive: 39.65 FPS

Although there’s nonetheless a good bit of throttling, the gadget stays practically 50% sooner than the Apple A14 in graphics workloads and significantly forward of the Exynos 2100. The supply believes that the mid-range SoCs will likely be paired with 2-4 CU GPUs, with a core clock of round 1GHz. The lower-end Exynos SoCs will likely be paired with Cortex A78 cores on the CPU aspect. Because it’s a a lot smaller chip, throttling isn’t actually a difficulty.

The Exynos 2200 SoC paired with the RDNA 2 (codenamed Voyager) GPU will likely be fabbed on the foundry’s 4nm LPE node. It’ll characteristic eight CPU cores: x1 Cortex-X1 high-performance core, x3 Cortex-A78 medium cores, and x4 A55 low-power cores. The SoC is slated for a launch in December 2021. As such, an announcement in late November makes quite a lot of sense.
