Secret Specs Revealed: Exynos 2400’s Hidden GPU Powers Up (1095 MHz!)

In October this year, Samsung launched its latest mobile processor, the Exynos 2400. This processor features the Xclipse 940 GPU, based on the RDNA 3 architecture, offering enhanced gaming and ray-tracing performance. However, Samsung did not provide specific specifications for this new GPU.

Recent online disclosures reveal that Samsung has significantly increased the frequency of the Xclipse 940 GPU, nearly doubling it from 555 MHz to 1095 MHz compared to the Xclipse 920 used in the Exynos 2200. Like the Xclipse 920, the Xclipse 940 is equipped with 6 WGP units and 12 CUs. Rumors suggest that the Xclipse 940 uses 14GB of VRAM, theoretically sufficient to run the latest mobile games employing ray-tracing technology.

Undoubtedly, increasing the frequency is the most direct way to enhance the performance of the Xclipse 940 GPU. Previously leaked benchmarks indicated that the graphical performance of the Exynos 2400 is quite impressive, closely matching the performance of Qualcomm’s third-generation Snapdragon 8, which features the Adreno 750 GPU.

There were past reports that Samsung had to reduce the CPU and GPU frequencies of the Exynos 2200 due to overheating issues, clearly impacting its performance capabilities. The Exynos 2400 is rumored to be manufactured using a 4nm LPP+ process and employs Fan-Out Wafer-Level Packaging (FoWLP) for the first time, with Samsung aiming to occupy less packaging space, make the chip thinner, and improve its heat dissipation.

Furthermore, the CPU section of the Exynos 2400 features a 1+2+3+4 quad-cluster architecture, including one super-large core (Cortex-X4@3.10GHz), two high-frequency large cores (Cortex-A720@2.90GHz), three low-frequency large cores (Cortex-A720@2.60GHz), and four small cores (Cortex-A520@1.80GHz), totaling ten cores. According to Samsung, the performance of the Exynos 2400 has improved by 70% compared to the Exynos 2200.
