Samsung Unveils Exynos 2100, Its First 5G-Integrated Flagship Mobile Processor

Samsung Electronics, a world leader in advanced semiconductor technology, has announced the launch of its new flagship mobile processor, the Exynos 2100. The processor is the company’s first premium 5G-integrated mobile processor built on the most advanced 5-nanometer (nm) extreme ultra-violet (EUV) process node. The Exynos 2100 promises to deliver powerful performance, high energy-efficiency, and enhanced artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities for tomorrow’s flagship mobile devices.

Exynos 2100: A New Standard for Mobile Computing

The Exynos 2100 is designed to meet the high expectations of power users who demand fast and seamless multitasking, gaming, and content creation experiences on their mobile devices. The processor is built on an advanced 5nm EUV process technology that allows up to 20-percent lower power consumption or 10-percent higher overall performance than the 7nm predecessor. For further enhancement, the chip offers improved cache memory utilization and a stronger scheduler.

The octa-core CPU comes in an improved tri-cluster structure made up of a single powerful Arm® Cortex®-X1 core that runs at up to 2.9GHz, three high-performing Cortex-A78 cores and four power-efficient Cortex-A55 cores delivering more than 30-percent enhancement in multi-core performance than the predecessor. The Arm Mali™-G78 GPU supports the most advanced graphic technologies and offers a 40-percent improvement in graphic performance for stunning and immersive visuals.

The Exynos 2100 also features a multi-IP governor (AMIGO) that optimizes power usage of CPU, GPU, and other processes, allowing longer use time even with intense on-screen activities.

Exynos 2100: A Seamless 5G Experience

The Exynos 2100 is Samsung’s first flagship mobile processor with an integrated 5G modem that supports both sub-6GHz and mmWave spectrums. The modem delivers a maximum downlink speed of up to 5.1-gigabits per second (Gbps) in sub-6GHz and 7.35Gbps in mmWave, or up to 3.0Gbps in 4G networks with 1024 Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) support.

The processor also supports the new global navigation satellite system (GNSS) receiver for improved accuracy and ultra-wideband (UWB) and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) for seamless and secure connectivity.

Exynos 2100: A Major Boost to AI Tasks

The Exynos 2100 is equipped with a powerful neural processing unit (NPU) that can perform up to 26-trillion-operations-per-second (TOPS) with more than twice the power efficiency than the previous generation. The NPU enables the processor to run AI tasks on-device, rather than relying on cloud processing, for better data privacy and faster response time.

The NPU also enhances the camera performance of the Exynos 2100 by enabling features such as object recognition, scene segmentation, face detection, and more. The processor supports camera resolutions of up to 200-megapixels (MP), and can connect up to six individual sensors and process four concurrently for richer multi-camera experiences.

The Exynos 2100 also supports advanced multimedia features such as encoding and decoding of 4K UHD video at 120 frames per second (fps), HDR10+, and Dolby Vision® for stunning picture quality.

Exynos On: A Virtual Event to Showcase the Exynos 2100

Samsung unveiled the Exynos 2100 through its first virtual event, Exynos On, on January 12, 2021. The event featured presentations from Samsung executives and partners, as well as a live demonstration of the processor’s capabilities.

The event also revealed that the Exynos 2100 will power the upcoming Galaxy S23 series, which will be unveiled at the Galaxy Unpacked event on February 2, 2023. The Galaxy S23 series has gotten a serious upgrade all across the board, from its enhanced battery and cooling system to its next-level camera performance and faster GPU.

The Exynos On event can be viewed on Samsung’s official YouTube channel or website.
