Samsung has introduced the approaching of its next-gen Exynos 2200 SoC in a quite unconventional manner: By posting an animated video a few younger gamer who’s pressured to promote her console to a COVID fundraiser after dropping a pal. The video sums up how the pandemic turned most of our lives the wrong way up coupled with lack of family members. A quite unusual strategy to promote/tease an upcoming cellular SoC. Both manner, should you watch intently there are a number of hints pointing to the Exynos 2200 which can characteristic an AMD RDNA 2 GPU.
And the Exynos workforce has revealed that they’re getting ready one other small reward for followers who love gaming. Early subsequent 12 months, followers can sit up for unwrapping one other small however highly effective reward from Exynos.
Promising console-grade graphics and efficiency (not directly) with the following technology of Exynos 2200 SoCs, Samsung is seeking to take its rivals (Qualcomm and Apple) head on within the subsequent spherical of the smartphone race. You’ll be able to undergo all our earlier protection beneath:
The Exynos 2200 is reportedly 31-34% quicker than its predecessor at peak efficiency whereas dropping to 17-20% in sustained workloads. This result’s actually a bit underwhelming in comparison with all of the earlier leaks that we’ve seen and seems to be restricted to a single software or benchmark. The GPU appears to be affected by a good bit of throttling on extended use. The supply claims that the (GPU) efficiency distinction between the Snapdragon 888 and the Exynos 2200 is kind of large whereas not revealing the precise numbers.
AMD’s cellular RDNA 2 GPU is able to critically excessive clock speeds. In the mean time, the engineers are testing two variants of the Exynos 2200 SoC: 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) should be tuned down a bit to maintain the TDP in examine:
The supply claims that the height GPU rating with the 1.58GHz variant is best because of 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 response to 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 had 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 exams are as follows:
Manhattan 3.1: 127.5 FPS
Aztec Regular: 90.7 FPS
Aztec Excessive: 39.65 FPS
Along with Samsung, Google and some Chinese language smartphone markers are additionally (reportedly) engaged on implementing RDNA 2 IP of their gadgets. It’s greatest to take the latter with a grain of salt because it’s the primary we’re listening to of it. 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.
