At the moment, Exynos 2100 is one of the best flagship chipsets available in the market, even it outperforms Snapdragon 888 as we saw earlier in various benchmarks tests. However, to showcase its power Samsung installed this in-house chipset in its top-notch Galaxy S21 smartphones.
Now, to explore more about this high-end processor, the Korean tech giant uploaded an informative video on Youtube that explains each and every aspect of this chip. So without wasting any time let’s dive into its details.
Samsung Exynos 2100 – ‘Tiny as a chip, monster as a performer’
Exynos 2100 is Samsung’s first 5G-integrated flagship mobile processor that provides a maximum downlink speed of up to 5.1Gbps in sub-6GHz and 7.35Gbps in mmWave. However, it is the second chipset from the company that built on a 5nm process technology.
Therefore, it delivers 20-percent lower power consumption and 10-percent higher performance when compared to its 7nm predecessor. Meanwhile its rival, Snapdragon 888 is also based on the same fabrication process.
Talking about the processing units, its CPU works by having a powerful Arm Cortex-X1 core for running at up to 2.9GHz. While it also has three high-performing Cortex-A78 cores and four power-efficient Cortex-A55 cores for blazingly fast outputs. Therefore, Samsung claims that it is 30% faster in multi-core tasks when compared to Exynos 990.
For handling the graphics, it features the new 14 core Mali-G78 GPU which supports the latest APIs, Vulkan, and OpenCL that leads to a 40 percent improvement in graphics performance while playing intense games like COD or PUBG.
The animated clip also tells about its new tri-core NPU (Neural Processing Unit) which comes with new architectural enhancements, used for reducing unnecessary tasks.
These structural changes are also used for proper work utilization and providing support for feature-map and weight confining. Resulted, it can perform up to 26-trillion-operations-per-second (TOPS) with more than twice the power efficiency, which is rare in the premium chipset segment.
What does it offer to handle the camera department?
For the best camera output, Exynos 2100 new ISP (Image Signal Processor) supports camera resolutions of up to 200-megapixels and can manage up to six individual sensors at the back while processing image data from four sensors simultaneously.
In addition, the multi-camera and frame processor (MCFP) of ISP can also combine feeds from multiple cameras to improve zoom performance and enhance image quality for ultra-wide shots.
Last but not least, the chipset offers a refresh rate of up to 144Hz for smooth scrolling while working on the internet. Besides, it supports HDR10+ displays with up to 4K resolution. However, you can record 8K videos from the phone that can be projected on TV or other big screens.
