January 18 news, today, Samsung announced the launch of a new high-end mobile processor Samsung Exynos 2200. This is a completely redesigned mobile processor using a 4nm EUV lithography process with a Samsung Xclipse graphics processing unit (GPU) based on the AMD RDNA 2 architecture.
With the most advanced Arm-based CPU cores and upgraded Neural Processing Unit (NPU) on the market today, the Exynos 2200 will enable a better mobile gaming experience while enhancing the overall experience of social media applications and photography, Samsung said.
According to the official introduction, the Xclipse GPU is between the host and the mobile graphics processor, and it is a very special hybrid graphics processor. “Xclipse” is a combination of “X” for Exynos and “eclipse”.
Based on the high-performance AMD RDNA 2 architecture, Xclipse inherits advanced graphics features such as hardware-accelerated ray tracing (RT) and variable rate shading (VRS) previously only available on PCs, laptops, and gaming consoles.
Additionally, Xclipse GPUs are equipped with technologies such as the Advanced Multi-IP Governor (AMIGO) which improves overall performance and efficiency.
Gadget Pixels has learned that the Exynos 2200 is one of the products on the market that integrates Arm’s latest Armv9 CPU core. The eight-core CPU adopts a tri-cluster structure design and consists of one Arm Cortex®-X2 core, three performance It consists of a balanced Cortex-A710 large core and four energy-efficient Cortex-A510 small cores.
With an upgraded NPU, the Exynos 2200 offers even more powerful on-device AI capabilities. Double the performance of the NPU compared to its predecessor, enabling more parallel computing and enhancing AI performance. In addition to the energy-efficient INT8 (8-bit integer) and INT16, the NPU now offers higher precision and supports FP16 (16-bit floating-point).
In addition, the Exynos 2200 integrates a high-speed 3GPP Release 16 5G modem supporting sub-6GHz and mmWave frequency bands. With E-UTRAN New Radio – Dual Connectivity (EN-DC), it can take advantage of both 4G LTE and 5G NR signals and boost speeds up to 10Gbps.
On the security level, the Exynos 2200 is equipped with an Integrated Secure Element (iSE) for storing private encryption keys and plays the role of RoT (Root of Trust). In addition, UFS (Universal Flash Storage) and DRAM’s inline encryption hardware have also been enhanced so that user data encryption is securely shared only within a secure domain.
The Image Signal Processor (ISP) architecture of the Exynos 2200 has been redesigned to support an entirely new image sensor, enabling ultra-high resolutions of up to 200 million pixels (200MP). At 30 frames per second (fps), the ISP supports up to 108MP in single camera mode and 64MP+36MP in dual camera mode. It can also connect up to 7 independent image sensors and support a 4-camera operation at the same time, thus realizing a multi-camera function. For video recording, the ISP supports resolutions up to 4K HDR (or 8K).
Along with the NPU, the ISP leverages content-aware AI cameras for more granular and realistic results. When taking a photo, the machine learning-based AI camera recognizes multiple objects, environments, and faces in the scene, and then applies the appropriate settings for color, white balance, exposure, dynamic range, and more to produce professional-quality images.
The Exynos 2200’s Multi-Format Codec (MFC) supports 8K resolution. It can decode 4K video at 240fps, or 8K video at 60fps, encode 4K video at 120fps, or encode 8K video at 30fps.
In addition, the MFC integrates an efficient AV1 decoder for longer playback times. The display solution supports HDR10+, allowing the picture to have a wider dynamic range and depth, and supports a 144Hz display refresh rate for a more responsive and smooth experience when sliding the screen or playing games.
Currently, the Exynos 2200 is in mass production.
