Over the years, Samsung's flagships have been available in most markets with the Exynos chipset, and in several countries these phones have reached users with the Snapdragon chipset. That's why we expected the same approach to be repeated for the Galaxy S22 series. However, we may not see that this year.
Better performance of Snapdragon flagship chips than Exynos is not new. This was especially troublesome for the Galaxy S20 series, as the Exynos 990-based models had a weaker GPU and GPU processor than the Snapdragon 865 chipset, had shorter battery life, and also had a lot of problems with heat. The poorer performance of Exynos chipsets has been widely criticized by users, and even a campaign has been launched for a while to stop the use of Exynos chips. Some of Samsung's most important shareholders have also questioned why the company insists on continuing to use proprietary chips.
Following these widespread criticisms, Samsung made sweeping changes. For example, it left out the proprietary processing cores for its processors, and as you probably know, the Exynos 2200 will be the first chipset equipped with a graphics processor designed by AMD. Meanwhile, all the evidence indicated the existence of this chipset in the Galaxy S22 series.
Samsung announced some time ago that it will unveil a new chipset on January 11, although its name is mentioned. No, but we were all waiting for the introduction of the Exynos 2200. Surprisingly, Samsung quietly deleted the tweet related to this event and did not provide any explanation in this regard. On the other hand, one of the whistleblowers claims that Samsung has postponed the introduction of this chipset to another date, and another whistleblower has announced that this chip will not be used in the Galaxy S22 series.
If this news is true The Galaxy S22 series with the 1st generation Snapdragon 8 chipset is available in all markets. Undoubtedly, such news is welcomed by many users, but on the other hand, some also want to use the first chipset with a graphics processor based on AMD architecture.
If the Galaxy S22 series with Exynos 2200 does not hit the market, maybe this The chip will be included in the Galaxy Tab S8 series tablets for the first time, but we can not speak with certainty in this regard either. We should note that none of these reports have been approved yet, so more details will probably be available soon.
However, the conditions for the Exynos 2200 do not seem ideal at all. A few days ago, a well-known whistleblower announced that the Exynos 2200 outperformed both the Dimensity 9000 and the Mali GPU in both the AMD RDNA2 processor and GPU, which is much worse than Apple's Snapdragon 8 generation 1 and A15. The performance difference widens.
The Exynos 2200 GPU is based on RDNA 2 architecture. For those unfamiliar with this architecture, AMD unveiled the RDNA architecture with the Radeon RX 5000 series graphics card. The second generation of this architecture, except for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox S and X series, is used in the Radeon RX 6000 series graphics card. Theoretically, the Exynos 2200 GPU should have more to say than the designs provided by Arm.
Finally, we need to see if the Exynos 2200 is really that bad for Samsung in the Galaxy series. S22 will leave or not. Do you think all these reports paint a good picture of this chip or will we end up with a much better chipset? Share your thoughts with us and others in the comments section.
