Samsung Exynos 2500 is rumored to use RDNA 4 architecture GPU and utilize LPDDR5T
Previously, reports suggested that Samsung was diligently crafting the Exynos 2500, which would harness a GPU tailored with AMD technology, though the specificities remained undisclosed. The whispers in the wind point towards the Exynos 2500 as an exquisite chip forged by Samsung’s “Dream Team”, boasting four Cortex-X5 cores, two Cortex-A730 cores, and four Cortex-A520 cores, and is currently under meticulous evaluation.
Renowned media channels highlight that Samsung has pivoted its developmental focus towards the Exynos 2500, holding modest expectations for the impending Exynos 2400. The infusion of GPU-specific expertise predominantly seeks to enhance the Exynos 2500, rendering the Exynos 2400 merely a transitional entity. Samsung’s endeavors in the GPU realm are monumental, with the Exynos 2500 potentially embracing a design grounded in the RDNA 4 architecture. While the intricate details are yet shrouded in mystery, one might anticipate superior ray-tracing capabilities.
A pivotal advancement of the Exynos 2500 is its embracement of the swifter LPDDR5T memory. As an evolved derivative of LPDDR5X, it boasts a staggering speed of 9.6Gbps, positioning it as the world’s fastest commercial mobile DRAM. Earlier, SK Hynix proclaimed that its LPDDR5T had undergone rigorous performance and compatibility verifications on Qualcomm’s third-generation Snapdragon 8 mobile platform, hinting at its prospective adoption by smartphone manufacturers.
Furthermore, Samsung intends to transition to a 3nm process, positioning the Exynos 2500 as its maiden 3nm SoC. Perhaps they aspire to augment performance and ameliorate power consumption via GAA transistor technology. Simultaneously, Qualcomm is poised to unveil its fourth-generation Snapdragon 8 platform, incorporating its proprietary Oryon core, anticipated to mount significant pressure on Samsung.
