Introducing Exynos 2200 – Samsung’s new chipset equipped with Xclipse GPU with AMD RDNA 2 architecture

News unit : Company Samsung After a long wait, finally on Tuesday, January 1, 2022 (28 January 1400) the new Exynos 2200 chipset Dimensity 9000 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 third chip equipped with Arm’s new V9 cores, but its reputation should be sought elsewhere, the GPU. Exynos 2200 is equipped with a new graphics called Xclipse, which uses AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture, and for the first time, it will offer some high-level graphics features such as hardware ray tracing in a mobile phone. The option of variable rate shading or VRS is also available in this.


Unlike the previous times, talking about Exynos 2200 should naturally start with its GPU or graphics, which after more than seven months have passed since the announcement The design of the next generation Exynos flagship chips with RDNA 2 graphics architecture from AMD, now this matter has become a reality and the Xclipse 920 graphics present in this chipset is the first achievement of the collaboration Samsung is considered with AMD. Samsung introduces Xclipse Graphics as “a unique hybrid GPU” that sits “between mobile GPUs and gaming consoles”. Regarding the naming of this name, Samsung has pointed out that Xclipse is composed of the combination of the word X and eclipse, the first of which refers to Exynos, and the second, like a celestial eclipse, ends an era of mobile games and begins a “new exciting era”. .

Among the most important features of this GPU, it should be mentioned the support of hardware ray tracing and VRS (variable rate shading), both of which are exclusive to computers, laptops, and game consoles, and somewhere in They did not have mobile graphics. Ray tracing can be interpreted as a precise simulation of the physical behavior of light in the real world, where the movement and color characteristics of light rays after reflecting from surfaces are calculated. This feature leads to the creation of realistic lighting effects in graphic scenes and provides a distinct experience from mobile gaming.

The second feature of Samsung’s new GPU is VRS with variable rate shading, during which the graphic designer and developer can For less important areas of the scene that do not affect the overall view, use a lower shading rate, and thus the graphics workload is optimized according to the situation, and by allocating GPU resources to more important areas, a smoother game experience is available to users.

The option of multi-IP governor or AMIGO is one of the other features of Xclipse graphics, which Samsung has mentioned without mentioning the details of improving the “productivity and overall performance” of the system with the help of this feature.

Regarding With the power of this graphics and its performance compared to 10-core graphics Mali-G710 present in Dimensity 9000 on the one hand and Adreno 730 graphics present in Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 On the other hand, naturally, until the presentation of the first device equipped with Exynos 2200, it is not possible to make a precise statement, but it is not said that As this competition heats up, we will probably have an exciting year ahead for the world of mobile games.

Processing cores

Exynos 2200 is the same as its competitors Dimensity 9000 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 of the same The processing cores and arrangement of 4+3+1 have been used before, where a powerful core Cortex-X2 at the highest level, three middle cores Cortex-A710 in the second cluster and finally four cores Cortex-A510 are on the low end Samsung did not mention the frequency and cache memory of these cores, and thus, at least in appearance, a direct comparison with the other two chipsets cannot be made.

Neural processing unit

Exynos 2200 according to the manufacturer. With the upgrade in NPU, it provides “more powerful internal artificial intelligence” and the doubling of the performance of its dual-core neural processing unit compared to the previous generation, has enabled more parallel calculations and improved performance in the AI ​​department. The NPU unit in this processor, apart from the low consumption computing quantities INT8 and INT16, now also uses 16-bit floating points (FP16) in this field, which will bring much higher accuracy.

Image signal processor (ISP) )

According to Samsung, the Exynos 2200 ISP or image signal processor uses a new design that allows the camera to support 200 megapixel resolution at 30 frames per second. This ISP supports image resolution of 108 megapixels in single mode and 64+36 megapixels in dual mode and can connect to 7 cameras (4 cameras simultaneously). The maximum video capture resolution on this ISP is limited to 4K HDR or normal 8K. In video playback, the maximum supported resolution in this ISP is 4K with 240 frames per second or 8K with 60 frames per second, and in video recording, you can achieve 4K resolution with 120 frames per second or 8K with 30 frames per second. In terms of the screen, it also supports the display of HDR10+ content and a refresh rate of up to 144 Hz in QHD+ resolution.

This set is also equipped with a built-in AV1 low-power decoder, which can be used when playing video from sources such as Netflix, YouTube, and other streaming services. Compatible with AV1, it offers longer playback time.

Communication options

The Exynos 2200 is naturally equipped with a built-in 5G modem, which now supports more frequency bands for both sub-6GHz network technologies. And it supports mmWave and with the possibility of combining 4G LTE and 5G NR signals on paper, it can reach 10Gbps download speed. Other communication options supported in this chipset include Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2 and NFC.


New processor Samsung has also appeared successful in the field of security and by using what is called an Integrated Secure Element, it has the ability to store encrypted private keys and function as a RoT; Rot or Root of Trust, in short, is a source of high reliability in a cryptographic system that often stores cryptographic operators with an independent hardware module.

Exynos 2200, according to Samsung, is currently in production. It was widely available, and although the company has not specified the first device to receive this chipset, it is almost certain that we will see the presence of this processor in some of the international versions of the flagships of the Galaxy S22 family.
