It’s the first time Samsung has held a launch for their SoC and today we have Exynos 2100 launching with an exclusive event. It is definite proof of how much the company is proud of its creation. After a few years of lagging behind Qualcomm, Samsung is ready to take back the crown and sure looks like it at least on paper. Let us see the specifications of the newly launched Exynos 2100 without wasting any time.
Everything About Exynos 2100
It is the company’s first chipset to feature a built-in 5G modem which allows it to clock 7.35 Gpbs download speed on a mmWave network and a maximum of 5.1 Gbps on sub-6 network. Besides, the architecture is based on the 5nm EUV process. Speaking of the architecture, the arrangement is lead by the new Cortex-X1 core which has a maximum clock speed of 2.9GHz. Following this, we have 3x Cortex A78 cores adjacent to 4x Cortex A55 cores known for their efficiency. According to the company, this SoC is 30% faster than last years’ flagship Exynos 990 when we take multicore performance into account.
This achievement is possible because of the advanced process which results in reduced power consumption by up to 20% for the same task or gives a 10% boost to performance at the same power. The company has made use of a multi-IP governor to optimize the power usage of CPU, GPU, and other elements in the chipset.
Moving to the graphics side of things required for tasks like gaming and rendering pixels, we have the new Mali-G78 with 14 cores. According to Samsung, this new GPU gets a 40% increase in performance when compared to its predecessor The new architecture of The tri-core NPU helps it clock 26 TOPS, which is the same figure that Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 poses. What is surprising here is this new architecture doubles the power-efficiency when compared to Exynos 990. In terms of memory it will support LPDDR5 RAMs that can reach a read-write speed of 51.2 GB/s.
Shifting our focus to the camera department, the SoC can now support camera sensors with up to 200 MP resolution, which is getting ready in the Samsing Labs at the moment. In addition, it can support a maximum of six camera sensors and process image data from four of them at once. Do note that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 can manage to process data from three sensors at once. Furthermore, the Multi-camera and Frame Processor (MCFP) technology in Exynos 2100 will be able to combine data from multiple cameras for better quality zoomed and ultra-wide shots, and the NPU will analyze faces and objects to better optimize the scene. In the video department, it will be able to shoot 8K videos at 60fps.
The Exynos 2100 will make its debut on the Samsung Galaxy S21 Series which is set to launch in two days on 14th January. The chipset will be powering devices that will be sold in markets except for China and the USA. Unlike the Exynos 990, the new chipset is already proving to be exceedingly powerful and energy-efficient, which means we should see less disapproval from fans in the markets like India where Exynos powered Galaxy S21 Series will be sold.
