Samsung reveals more details about Exynos 2400

In October last year, Samsung announced the launch of its new generation mobile processor, the Exynos 2400. Building on the foundation of the Exynos 2200, Samsung implemented numerous improvements: a 70% increase in CPU performance, a staggering 14.7-fold acceleration in Artificial Intelligence (AI) workloads, and the introduction of the RDNA 3 architecture in the GPU, enhancing gaming and ray tracing capabilities. Regrettably, at the time, Samsung did not disclose the complete details of the Exynos 2400.

As the Galaxy Unpac event approaches, Samsung has revealed more intricate details about the Exynos 2400. Its CPU features a 1+2+3+4 quad-cluster architecture, comprising 1 ultra-high performance core (Cortex-X4@3.20GHz), 2 high-frequency large cores (Cortex-A720@2.90GHz), 3 lower-frequency large cores (Cortex-A720@2.60GHz), and 4 smaller cores (Cortex-A520@2.00GHz), totaling 10 cores with frequencies that differ from previously leaked information. Additionally, the Exynos 2400 is equipped with an NPU named “17K MAC”.

The Exynos 2400 is capable of driving displays at 4K@120Hz or QHD+@144Hz, supporting a single 320MP camera, recording video at 8K@30fps, or decoding at 8K@60fps. Its integrated 5G modem offers downlink speeds of 12.1Gbps and uplink speeds of 3.67Gbps, supporting Sub-6GHz with downlink/uplink speeds of 9.64/2.55Gbps.

Samsung has not yet utilized the 3nm GAA process for manufacturing SoCs for smartphones; the Exynos 2400 is crafted using the 4LPP+ process. This process exhibits higher energy efficiency compared to the early 4nm process but still lags behind the TSMC N4P process used by Qualcomm’s third-generation Snapdragon 8.
