Exynos 2200 SoC brings game console-level graphics

The Exynos 2200 SoC from Samsung and AMD is the first smartphone chipset to feature a ray tracing-enabled GPU, a technology that elevates graphics quality.

The two companies’ partnership was first announced in 2019, with AMD confirming last year that it will bring the RDNA2 architecture to smartphones, catapulting the graphical performance of mobile games.

According to the official announcement, the Exynos 2200 SoC is built with the company’s 4nm EUV architecture, with the GPU having its own name which is “Xclipse”. Also, a senior AMD executive states that this chipset is only the first among many Exynos SoC that we will see in the future and which will be based on AMD RDNA graphics technology.

In terms of processing power, the Exynos 2200 uses Armv9 cores, the top-of-the-line Cortex-X2 core, three Cortex-A710s for more balanced performance and 4 Cortex-A510 cores in cases where the workload is not heavy.

It also incorporates a refreshed NPU that according to Samsung offers twice as much performance as its predecessor, with the ability to support camera sensors that can reach up to 200MP, like the one announced last year by the South Korean company.

The new powerful chipset will debut along with Samsung’s new flagships in the Galaxy S22 series, where they are expected to be released next month.
