As reported by the Chinese benchmark website AnTuTu, Samsung will again be using Exynos chipsets for some of its Galaxy S24 smartphones next year. The report aligns with previous leaks that the Samsung Exynos 2400 chipset could be used in Europe, Africa and some Asian countries. It is based on an improved 4nm manufacturing process from Samsung.
What is more interesting is that the report provides the detailed specifications of the Samsung Exynos 2400 chipset. Accordingly, there should be a 10-core CPU with a 1+2+3+4 configuration. The Cortex-X4 prime core is said to clock at 3.1 GHz and two Cortex-A720 performance cores at 2.9 GHz. There are also three 2.6 GHz Cortex-A720 and four 1.8 GHz Cortex-A520 efficient cores. All cores are based on the ARMv9 architecture.
According to the report, the new Samsung Xclipse 940 GPU has twice as many graphics processing units and AMD’s RDNA 2 technology. Since the Xclipse 920 had three WGPs (workgroup processors) with two processing units each, the Xclipse 940 will probably have six WGPs with a total of 12 GPU cores. It’s unclear if that would automatically result in twice the performance compared to the Exynos 2200 and thus serious competition compared to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. It sounds like a big step in the right direction, though, as Exynos chips have traditionally lagged behind in terms of graphics performance.
In addition, the Samsung Exynos 2400 supports LPDDR5X RAM and UFS 4.0 storage. The new image processor processes the data from 320 megapixel camera sensors and shoots 8K videos at 60 frames per second. Samsung is conveniently developing just such a sensor. In addition, the new Exynos 5300 modem is on board.
