Galaxy S22 Plus With ‘Modified’ Exynos 2200 Displaying a 4 + 4 CPU Cluster, No Cortex-X2, Noticed in Recent Leak

Samsung might be testing out modified variations of its upcoming Exynos 2200 for the Galaxy S22 lineup. In keeping with the newest leak, the Galaxy S22 Plus could function a 4 + 4 CPU cluster as a substitute of the 1 + 3 + 4 that Samsung employed within the Exynos 2100. Why the corporate could also be testing these variants out has been mentioned beneath.

Samsung Might Need to Enhance Effectivity Whereas Specializing in GPU Efficiency Enchancment by Excluding One Tremendous Care From the Exynos 2200

A screenshot posted by Anthony on Twitter reveals a Galaxy S22 Plus being examined with a distinct model of the Exynos 2200. When you look carefully, you possibly can see the next CPU configuration.

Exynos 2200 Achieves Poor Leads to Newest Benchmark Leak; Barely Scores Above Exynos 2100

  • 4 cores of Cortex-A710 operating at 2.50GHz
  • 4 cores of Cortex-A510 operating at 1.73GHz

After we tried to search out the identical Galaxy S22 Plus utilizing its distinctive mannequin quantity s5e9925 in Geekbench 5, we stumbled throughout a different CPU cluster of the Exynos 2200. In our findings, we noticed a 1 + 3 + 4 CPU cluster, with one core, which is probably going the Cortex-X2, operating at 2.59GHz. One cause why Samsung could be testing totally different Exynos 2200 variations is to discover a stability between efficiency and effectivity.

Since graphics efficiency has all the time been the Exynos’ Achilles’ Heel, Samsung could need to take away the Cortex-X2 whereas nonetheless offering an octa-core CPU configuration however with much less compute efficiency. Because the Cortex-A710 and Cortex-A510 will probably devour much less energy, Samsung may have room to work to permit the AMD RDNA2 GPU to function at greater frequencies, leading to elevated graphics efficiency whereas sustaining an appropriate total energy draw from the chipset.

The Exynos 2200 could not be capable to outpace Apple’s newest A15 Bionic, however it has crushed final 12 months’s A14 Bionic in a earlier benchmark leak. Maybe Samsung will enable the GPU to run at full tilt to squeeze each little bit of efficiency from it on the expense of CPU beneficial properties. Then once more, the specs listed on Geekbench have been manipulated earlier than, so it’s doable we’re greeted with the identical 1 + 3 + 4 configuration when Samsung formally pronounces the Exynos 2200.

We’ll preserve our fingers crossed and anticipate extra updates.
