Everything About Exynos 2100 Processor, Watch The Live Keynote Here
With the previous 2 generations of poorly underperforming Exynos chipsets. Samsung has been facing criticism in big time. Everyone just thrashed Samsung’s 1399$ flagship smartphones because of its underperforming chipsets. However, this time Samsung claims to have fixed the issues with the Exynos chipsets. Here we have the details and will discuss everything about Exynos 2100 processor.
The new Exynos 2100 is a flagship processor and will be used in all the flagship smartphones from Samsung in 2021. Starting from the Galaxy S21 series.
Samsung is holding an event on January 12, 2020, where they will be unveiling their all-new glorious Exynos 2100 processor. The live event will be pinned right at the end of this post, those who are interested can stream it. The event is scheduled at 7.30 pm IST and 9 am EST.
The last year’s chipset Exynos 990 was so much bad in terms of performance and efficiency that people were buying a mid-range OnePlus Nord which was performing better than the flagship S20 Ultra. Same was the case with the note 20 Ultra. The reason being the lack of optimization from Samsung. Also, Samsung just rushed into launching their own chipset and as a result, we all know how bad the Exynos 990 was. Apart from this, there was one big reason for the inefficiency of Exynos 990 and that was the Samsung’s own Mongoose M1 cores. These custom cores used in Exynos 990 are highly unstable, they have thermal throttling issues. Samsung managed to optimize the processor bit. But it is nowhere near to the performance of the counterpart Snapdragon 865.
With the launch of the new Exynos 2100, Samsung recently released an apologetic video, where the Exynos team even thanked for trusting them, so maybe this time they might change it all and fixed the issues which were there previously. You can watch the video here.
How the Exynos 2100 Will Compete Against Snapdragon 888?
Coming to the Exynos 2100. This time Samsung has learnt its lessons, and have done the homework very well. According to the leaked benchmark scores, the Exynos 2100 is outperforming the Snapdragon 888 processor. Do note that the scores of Exynos 2100 are from a reproduction software and hardware, so it can vary and optimization can be even better.
Also, earlier in 2020 we heard Samsung has decided to shut off the R&D centre of their Mongoose cores. which means Samsung will b shifting to ARM cores. This is the same which Qualcomm uses in snapdragon. So, in theory, the Snapdragon 888 processor and the Exynos 2100 processor both of them are using cortex X1 cores along with cortex ARM A78 cores. Also, Samsung is using a higher clocked frequency on its Exynos 2100 processor when compared to Snapdragon 888.
Secondly, the mail M78 GPU which is bundled with Exynos 2100 is tuned with AMD, which can be one of the most powerful GPU in the Android smartphone market. Currently, the Adren GPUs are right at the top of the shelf, when it comes to GPU performance and gaming.
Since both of them are using very similar SoCs, battery efficiency of both the Snapdragon 888 and the Exynos 2100 should be more or less. However, recently launched Mi 11, running on Snapdragon 888 chipset is having throttling issues. This could be due to the lack of optimization of MIUI, but it could also mean that the Snapdragon 888 chipset has throttling issues.
Samsung has also launched a mid-range Exynos 1080 processor and here is everything you need to know about the Exynos 1080 processor
