The previously claimed benchmark of the Exynos 2200 chip, which is expected to be used in the Samsung Galaxy S22, has appeared online, and they suggest a huge leap forward for Samsung’s chips in terms of graphics power. ۔ In fact, such a big leap that the new chip could beat the iPhone 13 for performance, and given how long Apple has been at the forefront of mobile, it would be quite disturbing.
However, given the benchmark and the stage the processor is at, Samsung and Android fans shouldn’t start thinking about Apple’s fall right now, as there are a few reasons why they could be so good. ۔
Still, what we’re seeing is hugely impressive. Samsung is working with AMD on GPUs for its next chips, and this is clearly the desired result. AMD has developed the ‘mRDNA 2’ technology for this chip, which is basically a customized version of RDNA 2 graphics tech that powers the PS5 and Xbox Series X, and also makes the steam deck such a juicy proposition. Is.
Leaked by user. Front Tron. On Twitter (via Tom’s Guide), data shows that Exynos scores 40% of the Apple A14 (as used in the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro) in multiple GFXBench benchmarks. – Defeated by 50%.
This is a huge margin, but an early wrinkle: the A14 figures provided by Tron do not exactly match this type of data when you bench on the GFX bench site for the iPhone 12. Mark sees. The ‘Manhattan 3.1’ benchmark reaches 120fps, while the Exynos reaches 170fps … except I see a score of 147fps for the iPhone 12.
Similarly, Tron says that Exynos gets 121fps in the ‘Aztec Normal’ benchmark and A14 gets 80fps, but this link shows 105fps for A14.
This clearly still gives the Exynos 2200 an edge over the A14, but this should come as no surprise: it’s a chip since 2020! The big question is whether the Exynos A15 can beat the expected performance of the chip that we will see in the iPhone 13. But based on the high Apple benchmarks I’ve linked to, that can’t happen.
The A14 improved 10 – 20 times better than the A13, in terms of tests, so if we see the same increase from A14 to A15, its performance will probably be in line with Exynos.
This is still a very good result from Exynos, but there are other reasons to worry about whether it will reach these heights in practice, and it is possible that Apple will jump further.
Preliminary tests, and the Exynos issue.
Therefore, it is worth noting that we do not know the conditions under which these leaked benchmarks were made. Did the Exynos 2200 chip have the same power and temperature range that a real phone would have, or was it running at a higher voltage with more air flow just to see what it could do? Because it will greatly affect the final results.
Is this version of Exynos the last version that will be in the phone? It is listed in the GPU as six CUs, which can be a beacon configuration aimed at a tablet or laptop. I tend to think that. Is What Samsung is planning to put in the phone, but we do not know for sure.
And then there’s the fact that Exynos chips are only used in Samsung phones in certain areas, while in the United States, for example, Samsung uses Qualcomm chips. So even if the Exynos 2200 is a complete game changer, not everyone will enjoy what it can.
And finally, when it comes to purely competing for the technical superiority between Samsung and Apple, Apple has another trick on its sleeve that it can deploy, and because of that it has outperformed Exynos. Will blow up
Exynos has six CUs – one CU is basically a ‘subunit’ from which AMD GPUs are created. You have the same load of CUs that you are all working on so you can give your full power. In Apple’s GPUs, it calls its equivalent subunits the ‘core’, and the A14 has only four of them. Apple can change nothing but add two more courses about its GPU to the A15, and performance will improve by about 50%. I don’t think it will, but it’s a reminder that Apple isn’t messing around when it comes to mobile performance, even in front of a GPU master like AMD.
