the partnership between the two tech titans will only result in an average increase in CPU and GPU performance. Ahmed recently stated that the SoC will only be 5% better than its predecessor. Only about 17% of GPU performance will be gained.
The Exynos 2200 SoC, which will power the Galaxy S22 series next year, has been the subject of a lot of speculation. It’s been predicted that it’ll compete (or perhaps beat) Qualcomm’s next large chip, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. AMD’s participation in the design and integration of the GPU in the CPU is the reason behind this. However,the performance benefits of Samsung’s flagship-level Exynos SoC would be less than projected.
So, the South Korean giant’s chipset will not knock Snapdragon out of the park, as earlier assumed. That part is but obvious from the lackluster growth in performance rating as compared to the outgoing versions.
Compare this to the Exynos 2100, which has a substantial gain over the outgoing Exynos 900 processor. There was a 30 percent bump in the CPU performance and 40 percent gain in GPU performance.
If we go beyond the benchmarking numbers and percentages, the new GPU will bring fine-tuned support for 3D games in high-fidelity titles. Leaving all the speculations and rumors aside (whether good or bad) only the real-life tests will gauge the metrics of the Exynos 2200 chipset, so let’s keep the hopes high till then!
That said, the silver lining will be in the form of the upcoming processor’s Neural Processing Unit (NPU) that has a whopping 117 percent performance boost when it comes to artificial intelligence. This will translate into a better and faster Bixby voice assistance as well as next-generation photography.
