Samsung has officialized the Exynos 2100, which is the company's first premium chipset with an integrated 5G modem and the second model created in the 5nm EUV manufacturing process.
The processor implements ARM's new high-performance Cortex-X1 core, clocked at up to 2.9GHz. There are also three more A78 cores and four efficient A55 cores. Samsung claims that the CPU is 30% faster in multi-core tasks compared to the Exynos 990 model. When it comes to the manufacturing process, the Exynos 2100 and Snapdragon 888 are models that use Samsung’s 5nm EUV.
The GPU uses a new 14-core Mali-G78 design, and the company claims to offer a 40 percent improvement in performance. The tri-core NPU uses a new architecture and achieves 26 TOPS when it comes to performance.
The Exynos 2100 with the new Image Signal Processor (ISP) supports camera sensors up to 200MP. It can be connected to six individual sensors and processes data from four sensors simultaneously. Multi-camera and Frame Processor (MCFP) can combine image data from different cameras for better zoom and ultra-wide shots. NPU is used to analyze scenes, detect faces and objects.
Finally, the Exynos 2100 is the first premium Exynos chipset with an integrated 5G modem. Both Exynos 980 and 1080 models have integrated 5G modems, but they are part of the upper-middle segment of the chip offers. The modem can achieve 7.35 Gbps downlink speeds on the mmWave network and 5.1 Gbps on the sub-6 network.
The new Samsung Exynos 2100 chipset is already in mass production and will launch the new Galaxy S21 series of phones.
