The Exynos 2200 will bring enhanced graphics from AMD and Ray Tracing to the Galaxy S22 devices

by time news

After concealing last week’s announcement event, and still not providing us with an explanation as to why, Samsung today (Tuesday, 18.1) officially unveiled the chipset expected to arrive in its next flagship series, the Galaxy S22. The platformExynos 2200 Built in collaboration with AMD to significantly enhance the graphics side by using the company’s RDNA 2 architecture and Samsung promise a combination of Ray Tracing in hardware acceleration for the first time in the phone.

The Exynos 2200 chipset joins Qualcomm’s and Media-Tech’s advanced platforms and goes into production in a 4-nanometer process using EUV (Extreme Ultraviolet Lithography) technology, for the first time integrating the Xclipse-compliant GPU (‘X’). It’s Laxinus and Eclipse is Sunset) and uses AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture to significantly improve the graphics side and deep learning (AI) capabilities.

The use of AMD’s technology allows Samsung to bring some of the capabilities we knew from video graphics cards directly to the handheld phone or tablet. The company notes that Ray Tracing technology, which brings with it a more realistic level of creating an image from a game on the screen and blurs the difference between what is seen in games and what exists in reality, brings the graphical experience to a level somewhere between what you get in game consoles and phones. .

As to exactly where the graphics performance will stand on this scale we will have to wait for field performance tests after launching first devices that will use the Exynos 2200 platform.

Another technology that Samsung mentions is VRS (Variable Rate Shading), which enables the enhancement of shadows by dynamically sampling different parts of the image, allowing the graphics processor to focus on the shadow rendering in the more important areas of the image and improve their visibility.

Specifications: Exynos 2200

The Exynos 2200 is manufactured by Samsung based on the Armv9 architecture, and it equips the platform with an 8-core processor divided into a Cortex-X2 performance core, joined by 3 more Cortex-A710 performance cores and 4 cost-effective Cortex-A510 cores, and on the side The graphics are found in the Samsung Xclipse 920 processor.

On the screen side, the chipset offers support for maximum 4K resolution displays with support for a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz, while a decrease in resolution to the + 2K QHD level allows support for a higher refresh rate of up to 144 Hz. In addition, there is also support for the HDR10 + standard

On the photo side, the platform supports a single 200-megapixel camera or a combination of a 108-megapixel camera along with a pair of additional cameras with resolutions of up to 64 and 32 megapixels, while the video side supports filming with a maximum resolution of 8K at 60 frames per second or filming. In 4K at 240 frames per second, as well as 10-bit support. Samsung notes that the system is capable of supporting up to 7 cameras, and simultaneously manipulating information from 4 cameras through the AI ​​engine, while controlling the color, whiteness, exposure and dynamic range levels for each scene individually.

The Exynos 2200 also supports 5G and LTE connectivity, with LPDDR5 support on the memory side and UFS 3.1 on the storage side.

Samsung is expected to first introduce the Exynos 2200 chipset in the Galaxy S22 series devices, which will be unveiled next month.
