Samsung officially announced its Exynos 2200 processor this morning (18 January 2022), touting a 4nm manufacturing process and a host of cutting-edge technologies to mark itself as Samsung’s flagship mobile processor of 2022.

The Exynos 2200 uses Xclipse GPU, based on AMD RNDA 2 architecture. According to its official statement, the Xclipse GPU offers advanced features such as hardware-accelerated ray tracing and variable-rate shading, making its graphics performance as capable as other modern flagship-grade mobile processors. 

For computing, the octa-core CPU uses a single Arm Cortex-X2, three Cortex-A710 big cores, and four Cortex-A510 for power efficiency. These are Arm’s latest Armv9 CPU cores, supporting features like Memory Tagging Extension that optimises CPU usage and performance.

Samsung didn’t say how much faster or better the Exynos 2200 is against its predecessor found on the Galaxy S21 series. They did, however, claim that it packs an upgraded NPU that has double the AI performance compared to take Exynos 2100. 

The built-in modem supports both sub-6GHz and mmWave types of spectrum brands for 5G, on top of using E-UTRAN New Radio - Dual Connectivity that lets the processor combine both 4G/LTE and 5G NR signals, with a maximum speed of 10Gbps.

Exynos 2200 uses an integrated image signal processor (ISP) with support for up to 200MP photos for photography and videography. It can also capture 4K HDR or 8K resolution video footage. Where it stands out is the NPU add-on that makes the ISP more content-aware, using machine learning to recognise objects, environments, and faces, to apply optimal camera settings on behalf of the user.

Display support for the Exynos 2200 includes HDR10+, 144Hz refresh rates, on top of decoding for 4K/240FPS and 8K/60FPS videos.

The Samsung Exynos 2200 was rumoured to appear in Samsung’s Galaxy S22 series phones, as with tradition.
