Samsung has unveiled its latest in-house chipset – Exynos 2100. It is the first chipset by the company to support an integrated 5G modem and also its launch event (online). The Exynos 2100 became the second chip to be built using the 5nm EUV process technology.
The chip features ARM’s new Cortex-X1 core with a clock speed of 2.9 GHz. Joining the high-performance core is three Cortex-A78 cores and four Cortex-A55 cores.
According to the company, this new Exynos 2100 is 30% faster compared to the Exynos 990 in multi-core tasks. Part of the reason for this is the advanced process technology, which can enhance performance by up to 10% with the same power level. The advanced process can also lower power consumption by up to 20%.
The Exynos 2100 is built on a 5nm EUV process just like the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset. The GPU of the chipset uses a new Mali-G78 design with 14 cores that offer a 40% performance boost according to Samsung.
The ISP (Image Signal Processor) on the Exynos 2100 supports cameras with a sensor of up to 200MP. For better quality zoom and ultra-wide shots, the MCFP (Multi-Camera and Frame Processor) can fuse image date from multiple cameras.
Lastly, the integrated 5G modem on the Exynos 2100 can achieve 7.35 Gbps downlink speeds (mmWave) and 5.1 Gbps downlink speeds (sub-6) just like the Exynos 990. While the Snapdragon 888 chip achieves 7.5 Gbps on the mmWave network.
