The flagship chipset Exynos 2200 Samsung has created high expectations on the graphics performance front, as the GPU was developed in collaboration with AMD.
However the new numbers reported by the analyst TechAltar they are not at all exciting, as they reveal that the Exynos 2200 GPU is only slightly better than the previous one, moreover, the CPU is also a little better performing than before.
Samsung’s Exynos 2200 CPU and GPU are uninspiring
According to the analyst, the octa-core CPU of Samsung’s latest SoC is only 5% faster than the cores of the Exynos 2100, thus well below the expected increase of the order of 15-20%, but the disappointment also comes unexpectedly from the AMD RDNA2-based Xclipse 920 GPU which is only 17% more powerful than that of the Exynos 2100.
Fortunately, the NPU proved to be the true upgrade to Samsung’s new chipset with an increase in the 115% compared to the previous generation which should offer faster image processing speed.
Overall, however, it remains to be seen whether this will translate into actual performance improvements in real use contexts.
TechAltar finally pointed out that Samsung would have tried to hide the shortcomings of its latest chip and would have even tried to cancel the launch event dedicated to Exynos which therefore seems destined to be beaten once again by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon.
