Final 12 months, Samsung partnered with AMD to enhance the graphics efficiency of its chipsets. It additionally turned one of many first chipset makers to unveil a 4nm node structure chip for smartphones, the Exynos 2200. The corporate additionally adopted the most recent Arm Cortex-X2 core to enhance the CPU throughput of the chipset.


Regardless of the efforts, the Exynos 2200 nonetheless did not impress the customers. Adam Conway of our sister web site XDA Builders confronted a lot of points along with his Exynos 2200 variant of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Extremely.

The SoC is reportedly being known as “Quadra” behind the scenes. Whereas the specs are unknown proper now, Sammobile has highlighted a number of the enhancements the Exynos 2300 might include.

Whereas the trade remains to be adopting the 4nm node course of structure, the Exynos 2300 might use the 3nm GAA fabrication course of. It’s anticipated to come back with the most recent ARM Cortex CPU cores and an up to date model of the Xclipse GPU. The improved model of the Xclipse GPU is alleged to be based mostly on the newer model of AMD’s Radeon GPU, which might carry a lot of enhancements.

Samsung might follow Snapdragon for now

The corporate is alleged to be constructing the following chipset from scratch, which might give it time and house to rectify the errors it has made previously few generations. Qualcomm, however, has been bettering its chipsets previously few years and will show to be a sensible alternative in the meanwhile.
