Samsung today unveiled its 2021 flagship chipset, the Exynos 2100. This 5G-enabled chip will arrive first in the Samsung Galaxy S21 family which will debut in two days. The latest Exynos chip is based on the 5nm EUV process node and comes with an integrated 5G modem that can connect to Sub-6GHz and mmWave type 5G networks. The Exynos 2100 opts for a three-core cluster design to distribute the workload. There is a single main core based on the Cortex ARM-X1 that operates at 2.9 GHz. It is accompanied by three Cortex-A78 cores that operate at 2.6 GHz, and four Cortex-A55 cores that operate at 2.0 GHz to handle less demanding tasks. Samsung promises a 30% improvement in multi-core performance compared to its 7nm-based predecessor – the Exynos 1080 – while single-core performance has increased by 19%. As for the GPU, the company claims that the Mali-G78 MP10 GPU in the Exynos 2100 offers 40% more graphics performance. There is also a triple-core NPU that reaches a peak of 26 trillion operations per second (TOPS), but with twice the power efficiency compared to its predecessor. In terms of camera capabilities, the Exynos 2100 is capable of handling up to six cameras and a resolution of 200 MP. The Exynos 2100 chip also supports 8K video capture at 30fps, while video decoding goes up to 8K at 60fps with HEVC 10-bit (H.265) support and 30fps with VP9 and AV1 10-bit codecs. As for the display part, the chip can handle 4K panels at a refresh rate of up to 120Hz and QHD + panels at a refresh rate of 144Hz. Samsung’s chip can handle LPDDR5 memory and UFS 3.1 storage.
