Shocking claim calls Samsung Exynos 2200 the ‘worst flagship processor’

Is the Korean giant in a spot of trouble?

As we have previously reported, Samsung has been working alongside AMD to release a brand-new 4nm mobile SoC that features a dedicated AMD RDNA2 chip, and according to the latest leaks and rumors, we can see that this could potentially pay off for them. According to reliable leaker Ice Universe, the Exynos 2200 will be able to reach clock speeds that even Apple’s mobile silicon might not be able to currently compete with. This could be huge for mobile gaming, in addition to anything that you’d want to do on any Exynos 2200 that also features the RDNA 2-based GPU unit, such as emulation, but is it any good?

Reportedly, this is not the outcome that Samsung wanted with the power of the chip being too hot to handle, with the thermal limitations of the device pushing the clocks down. Sammobile reports that we have previously seen 1800MHz clock speeds on this chip, so it can clearly go further. We know surprisingly little about the chip itself, just that it has 4 CUs, and can also potentially feature things such as Ray Tracing if any compatible applications actually come out to make use of it, but don’t expect the same performance as a gaming PC.

Is the Samsung Exynos 2200 bad?

According to Reddit user /u/kfthebest97, the leaker Ice Universe went on a tweet rant stating that the Samsung Exynos 2200 is actually not that good, and could be the ‘worst flagship processor’. Unfortunately, these tweets have since been deleted. Ultimately, it depends if Ice Universe managed to get a look at the hardware that was close to final, as there are so many other additional factors that go into the making of a brand-new SoC that could see the final hardware being potentially far better than anyone expects. Regardless, we’ll just have to wait and see until we’ve got the unit in our hands.

Samsung Exynos 2200 to be included in Galaxy S22

It’s still unclear as to whether or not the Samsung Exynos 2200 will be featured in every single Galaxy S22 unit that we’re currently seeing, they may limit the best chips to be used in the pricier handsets such as a Galaxy S22 Ultra, or a new Galaxy Note system since those phones will have more area to dissipate the heat than other chips do, which could be great if you are looking to really put those chips to work with heavy tasks such as gaming.

Samsung Exynos 2200 vs Apple A15 Bionic

As it stands, the current leaked data suggests that the RDNA 2 GPU in the Samsung Exynos 2200 is clocked at 1300MHz, which is faster than the Apple A15 Bionic’s 1200MHz GPU in devices such as the Apple iPhone 13. This is not only due to the RDNA 2 chip but also due to other improvements with the chip design of Samsung’s latest, which is due to be officially revealed on the 12th.
