Samsung launches Exynos 2200 SoC with Xclipse GPU
Samsung has announced a new mobile processor, the Exynos 2200, which is the company’s newly developed mobile processor with the AMD RDNA 2 architecture-based Samsung Xclipse graphics processing unit (GPU). The chipset is equipped with Arm-based CPU cores and an enhanced neural processing unit (NPU). According to the company, this will enable the Exynos 2200 to deliver the ultimate mobile gaming experience and improve the overall experience of social media apps and photography.

“Based on the most advanced 4-nanometer (nm) EUV (extreme ultraviolet lithography) process and combined with advanced mobile, GPU and NPU technology, Samsung has developed the Exynos 2200 to deliver the best experience to smartphone users. “In addition to providing users with the best mobile experience, Samsung will continue its efforts to lead in logic chip innovation. Featuring Xclipse, our new mobile GPU powered by RDNA 2 graphics technology from market leader AMD, the Exynos 2200 will redefine mobile gaming, supported by enhanced graphics and AI performance,” said Yongin Park, President of System LSI Business at Samsung Electronics.
Samsung claims the Xclipse GPU is a unique hybrid GPU between console and mobile GPUs. Xclipse is a combination of “X,” which stands for Exynos, and the word “eclipse.” Samsung says that “like an eclipse, the Xclipse GPU will end the old era of mobile gaming and mark the beginning of an exciting new chapter.”

It uses the powerful AMD RDNA 2 architecture, which offers advanced graphics features such as hardware-accelerated ray tracing (RT) and variable rate shading (VRS) that were previously only available on PCs, laptops, and consoles. the Xclipse GPU has several technologies, such as advanced multi-IP governor (AMIGO), that improve overall performance and efficiency.
“The AMD RDNA 2 graphics architecture extends low-power, advanced graphics solutions to PCs, laptops, consoles, cars, and now mobile phones, Samsung’s Xclipse GPU is the first result of several planned generations of AMD RDNA graphics in Exynos SoCs,” said David Wang, senior vice president of the Radeon Technologies Group at AMD. “We can’t wait for our mobile customers to experience the great gaming experiences built on our technology partnership.
