Samsung just has it Advertise The Exynos 2100 chipset, which many believe will power the Galaxy S21 when it is announced later this week.
Exynos 2100 is Samsung’s first 5nm chipset, but it isn’t the first 5nm chipset on the market – as the Snapdragon 888 5G is also 5nm. Samsung is promising some big wins in Exynos 2100 this year, such as 30% better CPU performance and 40% better GPU performance, compared to the Exynos 990 processor.
And it seems that Samsung is finally catching up with Qualcomm with the Exynos 2100. Although this has been said every year for the past five years, so we have to wait and see.
The Exynos 2100 is designed similarly to the Snapdragon 888 5G chipset
As mentioned, the Exynos 2100 will be a 5nm chipset, similar to the Snapdragon 888 5G that was announced in December. Thanks to the smaller overall size, the chipset will also be 20% more energy efficient than its predecessor.
You’ll also be using a three-cluster build. Which features one ARM Cortex X1 core running at 2.9 GHz, along with three Cortex A78 cores and four Cortex A55 cores, which aim for efficiency.
Exynos 2100 uses ARM’s latest Mali-G78 GPU. As mentioned, this will provide up to 40% higher graphics performance and will support the latest APIs like Vulkan and OpenCL.
Samsung has equipped the Exynos 2100 with an advanced Internet service provider that also supports up to 200 megapixels of cameras and up to six individual sensors.
Finally, this chipset has an integrated 5G modem, which supports sub-6GHz and mmWave.
Although not confirmed, the Exynos 2100 is expected to be inside the international variants of the Galaxy S21 series. As in previous years, the US and a few other countries will get the Snapdragon version and a lot of Europe and some parts of Asia will get the Exynos version of the Galaxy S21. Of course, we’ll definitely find out on Thursday when Samsung is organizing its Unpacked event.
