The Exynos 2100 is Samsung’s first flagship chip with an built-in 5G modem and its second to be constructed on the 5nm EUV course of. Additionally, it’s the primary Exynos chip to get its very personal launch occasion.
The processor adopts ARM’s new high-performance Cortex-X1 core and runs it at as much as 2.9 GHz. Becoming a member of it are three A78 cores, plus 4 energy environment friendly A55 cores. Samsung claims that this CPU is 30% sooner in multi-core duties in comparison with the Exynos 990.
A part of that benefit comes from the extra superior course of, which might improve efficiency by 10% (on the identical energy degree) or decrease energy consumption by 20%. Samsung has carried out a multi-IP governor to optimize the ability utilization of the CPU, the GPU and the opposite parts of the chipset.
Talking of course of, this 12 months each the Exynos 2100 and Snapdragon 888 are fabbed at Samsung’s 5nm EUV foundries. This implies neither chipset has a process-related benefit. We’ll evaluate the 2 chips (and a few others) in a minute.
The GPU makes use of the brand new Mali-G78 design with 14 cores. The corporate claims a 40% efficiency enhance. The tri-core NPU makes use of a brand new structure and reaches 26 TOPS (funnily sufficient, Qualcomm additionally claims 26 TOPS for its Snapdragon). The brand new design doubles the ability effectivity in comparison with earlier generations.
The brand new Picture Sign Processor (ISP) on the Exynos 2100 helps cameras with sensors as much as 200 MP (and people are on the way). Higher but, it may be related to 6 particular person sensors and course of information from 4 of them concurrently (the Snapdragon solely manages three streams).
The Multi-camera and Body Processor (MCFP) can fuse picture information from a number of cameras for higher high quality zoom and extremely large photographs. The NPU can be used, it analyzes the scene, detects faces and objects in order that it could possibly choose the optimum settings.
Lastly, that is the primary flagship Exynos with an built-in 5G modem. The 980 and 1080 have built-in modems too, however they’re higher midrange components. The modem can obtain 7.35 Gbps downlink speeds on a mmWave community and 5.1 Gbps on a sub-6 community, matching the Exynos 990.
The brand new Exynos 2100 is already in mass manufacturing, in fact. Right here’s the way it compares in opposition to its predecessor, the Snapdragon 888 and some others:
