The last flagship Exynos chipset was the Exynos 2200, launched in 2022. This chip powered the Samsung Galaxy S22 series and the recently launched Galaxy S23 FE. While the Exynos 2200 was an excellent chip on paper, the story was different in the real world as this chip had a lot of issues. This year, Samsung did not launch any new Exynos chip to compete against the best from Qualcomm, which was a surprise. And so, the Galaxy S23 series was launched with the same chip for all the markets – Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
But this will change again since next year’s Galaxy S24 series will have both Snapdragon & Exynos variants, as per the reports. The series will feature the Exynos 2400 chipset, which has been in the news for quite some time. Today, Samsung officially showcased its Exynos 2400 chip at the System LSI Tech Day 2023.
Samsung claims the Exynos 2400 chip offers a 1.7x increase in CPU performance compared to the Exynos 2200. And there is up to 14.7x increase in AI performance. These are some big numbers, but we also need to understand that these numbers are in comparison to an almost two-year-old chip.
One of the highlights of the Exynos 2200 chip was its GPU. It had the Xclipse 920 GPU powered by the AMD RDNA 2 architecture. This was also the first mobile GPU with hardware-accelerated ray tracing support. The Exynos 2400 has the new Xclipse 940 GPU, powered by the AMD RDNA 3 architecture.
Samsung did not reveal the specifications of its new chip, but if the leaks are to be believed, the Exynos 2400 has a 10-core CPU with a prime Cortex-X4 core. This core count was also confirmed by Powerboard, a graphics performance ranking platform.
We expect Samsung to announce the Exynos 2400 soon with all the details.
