Samsung unveils Exynos 2200 chipset with Xclipse GPU


South Korean tech giant Samsung on Tuesday introduced the Exynos 2200, its latest flagship chipset that will power Galaxy S22 smartphones in select regions. According to GSM Arena, the new platform was built on 4nm EUV process technology and sports a bespoke GPU named Xclipse.

The chip is based on the AMD RDNA2 architecture, and as such it’s a “first-of-its-kind hybrid graphics processor” that brings advanced features like ray tracing and variable rate shading to mobile. , becoming the first smartphone chip to do so. Ray-tracing technology simulates the behavior of light in real life, calculating the motion and color of objects as light rays bounce off surfaces.

The hardware acceleration feature gives realistic effects and immersive graphics, making games that support these features a fabulous experience. Another technology is variable rate shading, which is implemented in PC and console games. It allows developers to apply weaker shading to areas where quality won’t be affected, improving the frame rate and smoothness of gameplay.

The Exynos 2200 is also among the first chips to integrate Armv9 processor cores. This octa-core processor has a single powerful Cortex-X2 core, three Cortex-A710 cores balancing performance and efficiency, and four small Cortex-A510 cores for power efficiency. Samsung traditionally doesn’t reveal how often its chips are clocked. The all-new GPU and upgraded CPU also sport a more powerful NPU to keep them company. Compared to the Exynos 2100, performance has doubled and now allows for more parallel computations, improving overall AI performance.

In other specs, the Exynos 2200 supports up to 200MP single camera, 8K video recording, 4K displays at up to 120Hz or QHD+ ones at 144Hz. The chipset runs on the latest RAM LPDDR5 and UFS 3.1 storage. The 5G modem works on both sub-6GHz and mmWave frequencies, while the Global Navigation System supports all major standards and satellites.

According to GSM Arena, Samsung said the Exynos 2200 is “currently in mass production”. There is no official date when we will see the Galaxy S22 series with the chip, but rumors point to February 8 as a potential launch date. (ANI)
