Samsung Exynos 2200 with 4nm LPE Process and AMD GPU | Exynos 2200 GFXBench
This week released a Qualcomm Snapdragon 895 (codename SM8450) chip detailed information. The flagship platform will allegedly be built on a 4nm process, but the industry is divided on the foundry.
Previously, sources revealed that the series has not yet confirmed TSMC or Samsung, possibly as a dual-version solution, after all, Samsung’s mass production time is earlier, TSMC reliability will be higher.
Another well-known tipster, Mauri QHD, revealed that a source with an 7/8 accuracy rate said that the Qualcomm SM8450 or Snapdragon 895 will still be manufactured by Samsung, or at least the Samsung version, which will use its 4nm LPE process, as well as Samsung’s own Exynos 2200.
He also said that the 4nm LPE process mentioned here is a renaming of the 5nm LPA (third-generation 5nm) solution based on 5nm because it’s easier to market, while in reality the 5nm LPA and 4nm LPE are not very different in terms of performance.
I believe that the authenticity of the news is high because TSMC has priority over Apple, in the case of the limited capacity of advanced processes, will give priority to supplying Apple. To ensure capacity security, Qualcomm and Samsung using Samsung 4nm technology is the most secure choice.
Compared to Snapdragon 888, the new generation SM8450 has been upgraded to Arm v9 architecture and the GPU has been upgraded from Adreno 660 to Adreno 730, which is expected to be a considerable improvement.
Qualcomm’s new generation of flagship processors have previously revealed information about the CPU, GPU, DSP, and other comprehensive upgrades, Adreno730 GPU upgrade is particularly worth looking forward to. Samsung’s new generation flagship Exynos 2200 processor GPU using AMD RDNA 2 architecture, its upgrade may be more surprising.
At Computex Taipei not too long ago, AMD CEO Su Zifeng announced Samsung’s next-generation flagship SoC, which will be equipped with custom graphics IP provided by AMD, supporting Ray-tracing, VRS (variable shading rate), and much more.
And a little earlier, a media outlet revealed Exynos 2200 GFXBench run scores for early samples of Samsung’s next-generation flagship processor. The news shows that running the GFXBench GPU tests of Manhattan 3.1, Aztec (normal), and Aztec (high), the Samsung Exynos 2200 scored 181.8FPS, 138.25FPS, and 58FPS respectively. In comparison, the Apple iPhone 12 Pro A14 scored 146.4FPS, 79.8FPS, 30.5FPS respectively.
|Unnamed Radeon Exynos SoC||Apple A14 Bionic (iPhone 12 Pro)|
|Manhattan 3.1||181.8 fps||120 fps|
|Aztec Ruins (normal)||138.25 fps||79.9 fps|
|Aztec Ruins (high)||58 fps||30 fps|
This set of data means that the Samsung Exynos 2200 with AMD RDNA 2 architecture is already significantly ahead of Apple A14 in terms of GPU performance, and if the mass production version can maintain such results, then the Samsung Exynos 2200 is expected to represent the Android camp processor for the first time in GPU performance to beat the Apple A-series processors.
