Samsung Exynos 2400 GPU and CPU
Samsung is reportedly developing a new flagship chipset, the Exynos 2400, which is expected to feature a 6WGP RDNA 2 graphics unit. The new RDNA2 solution is said to contain 12 compute units in the GPU, a fourfold increase compared to the previous Exynos 2200’s 3CU on Xclipse 920 GPU. Although frequency and architecture will also play a role, the increase in cores is expected to boost overall performance.
The Exynos 2400 CPU is said to use a 10-core design, with a 3.1GHz Cortex-X4 super core, two higher frequency Cortex-A720 cores (2.9GHz), three lower frequency Cortex-A720 cores (2.6GHz), and four Cortex-A520 energy-efficient cores (1.8GHz). This design reportedly has more cores than current flagship models from other manufacturers.
The Exynos 2400 is expected to be built based on a 4nm LPP process, which is better than the previous 4nm LPE and 4nm LPI processes. This is expected to help solve issues with power consumption and heat generation.
While the Exynos 2400 looks promising, it remains to be seen how it will perform in the market. The previous Exynos 2200 was only carried on the European version of the S22 series and received complaints from users. The current Snapdragon flagship core is a more secure choice for now, but the development of the Exynos chip shows that Samsung is not abandoning the Exynos business.
In conclusion, the Exynos 2400 looks to be a strong contender in terms of performance, but only time will tell if it can compete with other flagship chips on the market. The development of this new chip shows that Samsung is not giving up on the Exynos business, and it will be interesting to see how it is received by consumers once implemented into a product.
