Samsung has introduced the Exynos 2100 chipset, which will be used by the Galaxy S21 smartphones

We are just a few days away from the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S21 series. However, the South Korean tech giant has just dropped the new Exynos 2100 chipset that will be used in the new S21 smartphones.

The chipset, which will most likely be used by the new top models in Samsung’s Galaxy S21 series, was presented minutes ago. Samsung announced the Exynos 2100 just two days before the debut of its new flagship smartphones, promising 30% higher CPU performance and 40% for the graphics chip. This is the most serious request from the Koreans so far, and the goal is to finally eliminate the serious gap between Exynos and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon platform, which Samsung uses in the same devices, but for other markets (the USA and China).

Exynos 2100 is the first premium chipset of the Koreans, which is manufactured in a 5-nanometer process and includes an integrated 5G modem.

The platform includes a processor with 3 core clusters. At the top is 1 powerful Cortex-X1 core at 2.9 GHz, followed by 3 high-performance Cortex-A78 cores at 2.8 GHz and 4 more energy-efficient Cortex-A55 cores at 2.2 GHz. Samsung promises a 30% increase in performance over its previous chipset.

The graphics chip is a Mali-G78 with 14 cores, and the Koreans talk about 40% higher performance. There is a new 3-core NPU chip, as well as the new AMIGO (advanced multi-IP governor) technology, which monitors and optimizes the power consumption of the processor, graphics chip, and other processes so as to ensure a longer life for the device, even with more intensive tasks.

In total, the Exynos 2100 can handle 26 trillion calculations per second (TOPS) and has twice the energy efficiency of the previous generation.

Samsung says the Exynos 2100 has a 3 core NPU, and with the combined improvements in CPU, GPU, DSP, and NPU, the SoC achieves 26 TOPS performance. That matches the figure achieved by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 and is a significant jump from the 15 TOPS achieved by the Exynos 990. All this sounds great and we can only hope that Samsung has really learned a lesson from the situation so far and with the Exynos 2100 will be able to catch up with Qualcomm.

As for the image processing processor (IPS) – it supports up to 200 MP cameras and systems of 6 sensors, where 4 can work simultaneously.
