Exynos 2400; Will It Have Massive Increase In GPU Performance?

Exynos 2400 is a high-end mobile processor developed by Samsung. It was officially announced in October 2022 and is expected to be used in some of Samsung’s flagship smartphones in 2023.

The processer is based on a 4nm manufacturing process and features a tri-cluster CPU architecture, with two high-performance Arm Cortex-X2 cores, four Cortex-A710 cores, and four power-efficient Cortex-A510 cores. It also includes a Mali-G710 GPU, a dedicated AI engine, and a 5G modem that supports both sub-6GHz and mmWave frequencies.

Samsung claims that the processer delivers significant performance improvements over its predecessor, the Exynos 2200, with up to 30% higher CPU performance, up to 60% higher GPU performance, and up to 20% lower power consumption.

Exynos 2400

However, Samsung’s plans for its upcoming Exynos 2300, Exynos 2400, and Exynos 2500 chipsets have been a mystery. But, that may have changed now that a Korean leaker has revealed information on the matter, with an ambitious “Exynos 2400” rumored to be Samsung’s comeback to S24 series in 2024.

Exynos 2400 Rumors:


The graphics processing unit (GPU) in Samsung’s Exynos 2200, also known as the Xclipse 920, was based on AMD’s RDNA2 architecture. The company has plans to incorporate an RDNA2-based GPU once more into the subsequent iteration of the Exynos 2400, but this time with 6WGP. “Workgroup Processor” is an acronym for “Workgroup Processor,” and one “WGP” is composed of two “compute units.”

To put it another way, the GPU’s processing capability will increase proportionately with the number of computing units (CUs) that it contains. As a point of comparison, the graphics processing unit (GPU) of the Xclipse 920 has three compute units (CUs), whereas the upcoming 2400 will have twelve compute units. In addition, Samsung is hard at work developing a new and improved ray tracing technology that will be incorporated into its future chip.

Deca-Core CPU

The earlier leaks indicate that this chip will include a deca-core CPU cluster, which is something of a rarity in today’s computing hardware. Nevertheless, this cannot be considered a first in the sector. Even though configurations of octa-core CPUs are more frequent these days, MediaTek already experimented with a 10-core CPU in 2017 with the Helio X20. This was done even though octa-core CPU arrangements are more common these days. This chip was discovered in mobile devices such as Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 4 smartphone.

According to recent reports, the 10-core central processing unit (CPU) of the Exynos 2400 will consist of 1x Cortex-X4, 2x Cortex-A720 (higher frequency), 3x Cortex-A720 (lower frequency), and 4x Cortex-A520 cores.

Will Exynos 2400 Power The Samsung Galaxy S24 Series?

A few more speculative data about the processer circulated earlier this week. According to such reports, a Galaxy S24 series handset could be powered by the Exynos 2400 later this year.

Samsung Exynos 2400 Performance

Reports suggest, unlike other mobile SoCs that feature an octa-core architecture, the upcoming Exynos platform will have 10 cores. The chipset may have the following cores: one Cortex-X4 (3.1 GHz), two Cortex-A720 cores (2.9 GHz), three Cortex-A720 cores (2.6 GHz) and four Cortex-A520 cores (1.8 GHz). Since Samsung is shifting to deca-core architecture, it’s possible other manufacturers may also follow the lead.

While one may not have high hopes for an Exynos chip, judging from the leaked details, the processor looks promising. However, there’s only so much you can learn from dry specs. Currently, it’s not even certain if the Exynos 2400 will actually power the Galaxy S24 series, as Samsung could very well have different plans for the upcoming lineup.
