The Exynos 2200 will equip Samsung’s new smartphones for 2022, with the Galaxy S22 trio making its market debut by integrating these processors. The excitement around the Galaxy S22 chipset is high, as this will be the first result of the partnership between the South Korean company and AMD.
Well, the market continues to pay attention to the “firstborn child” of this marriage and this Monday, its first results appear in the famous Geekbench test bench.
Exynos 2200: results in Geekbench still do not allow you to draw conclusions
IceUniverse turned to the social network Twitter to share the results of a test of a Samsung device in Geekbench 5. The unit tested is named SM-S906B and, according to the source, corresponds to the Galaxy S22+. As we can see from the test, the processor is named S5E9925, which according to the source will be the Exynos 2200.
The distribution of the processor cores ends up matching the structure of the Exynos 2200, which according to various sources has a Cortex-X2 prime core, three Cortex-A710 cores and four efficient Cortex-A510 cores. As we can see from the test, the Cortex-X2 runs here at a frequency of only 2.59 GHz, but according to the source, this powerful core will reach 3.00 GHz at its maximum power.
The low results reported of 1073 points in the single-core test and 3389 points in the multi-core test (which are slightly below the Exynos 2100) can be explained in two ways. This will be a test version, integrating a prototype with an unstable system that still doesn’t take full advantage of the processor’s capabilities. On the other hand, the source denotes the “ energy_aware ” directive that we can detect in the test, which should indicate that the test was done with the smartphone in energy saving mode.
It is certain that this will be the first processor to reach the market with the ARMv9 architecture and with an AMD RDNA2 Mobile Radeon GPU, being two of the main focuses of the Exynos 2200. The Snapdragon 898, which will have a structure identical to the Exynos processor, will not benefit from the AMD GPU, but will take advantage of much of the technology for the CPU, as both will be based on Samsung’s 4nm microarchitecture.
The latest rumors point to the arrival of Exynos processors in the North American and Chinese market for the first time in several years. Samsung is reportedly negotiating with operators in these countries for the arrival of this version exclusively in each of the two markets. India should receive the version with Snapdragon 898.
