After a slight delay of a week, the popular South Korean manufacturer hits the table to reveal to the world the exynos 2200 chip. This mobile processor is designed to power the company’s next flagships and boasts the latest innovations in mobile technology, such as the Xclipse GPU with hardware accelerated ray tracing support.

As Samsung tells us, this chip is intended to offer the ultimate mobile gaming experience, as well as improve the 5G browsing, social media and photography experience.

Going into details, the chip is built on a 4nm node achieved with a lithographic process that uses ultraviolet light. On the side of processor has 8 cores, where we find a cluster of 3 Cortex-A710 cores, 4 Cortex-A510 cores and a Cortex-X2.

However, the most interesting part is in the GPU Samsung Xclipse 920, which would change the landscape of mobile gaming forever. It is based on the RDNA2 architecture from AMD and brings ray tracing and VRS (variable rate shading) into the equation. As explained from Samsung:

“Variable Rate Shading is a technique that optimizes GPU workload by allowing developers to apply a lower rate of shading in areas where overall quality will not be affected. This gives the GPU more room to work on the areas most important to gamers and improves framerates for smoother gameplay.”

In the same way, important changes and improvements are coming for the NPU, which is the unit in charge of artificial intelligence tasks. The image signal processor also receives its respective updates and now supports photo sensors up to 200MP resolution; not to mention that he admits video recording at [email protected] and [email protected] encoding.

And when it comes to display solutions, the Samsung Exynos 2200 has HDR10+ which adds more dynamic range and depth to the image and offers 144Hz refresh rates for greater responsiveness.

Finally, we now officially know that the Samsung Exynos 2200 is in mass production; So we can safely say that will be aboard the Samsung Galaxy S22 family.
