After a long wait, Samsung is going to use the long-awaited Exynos 2200 chip inside the Galaxy S22 family of phones. This chip is equipped with AMD graphics processing unit for the first time. Partnering with AMD promises many improvements in the graphics performance of Samsung chips. However, a Twitter revelation with the username AhmedQwaider888 has shared details of the chip that will probably disappoint some fans.
The report states that the performance of the Korean flagship chip has improved by only 5% in the CPU section and by almost 17% in the GPU section. The Exynos 2100 chip, meanwhile, saw a 30 percent increase in performance compared to the Exynos 990 in the CPU segment and a 40 percent increase in the graphics unit. Therefore, on paper, it seems that Samsung has not only made no significant progress in this area; It has also lost its average annual growth.
It should not be overlooked that the SOC is not limited to the CPU and GPU components, and apparently Samsung’s new chip in the NPU (neural processing unit) section offers 117% better performance compared to the previous generation. More powerful AI processing can speed up voice assistants like Bixby, and therefore have a significant impact on image processing.
However, Samsung chips have always been weak in graphics processing, and working with AMD was expected to close the gap. In general, AMD has no experience in the field of smartphone chips; Therefore, it is not far-fetched that its first joint graphics chip with Samsung did not live up to expectations.
However, it is not possible to predict at this point, and it is unclear whether the partnership with AMD will help Samsung’s chip segment; Therefore, it is better to wait for the first Samsung products equipped with the mentioned chip to get a better conclusion by examining them.
