The yield rate of Exynos 2400 is currently at 60%

In October of the preceding year, Samsung heralded the advent of its latest mobile processor innovation, the Exynos 2400, marking a significant leap forward from its Exynos 2200 predecessor. This new chipset boasts a substantial 70% enhancement in CPU performance and a staggering 14.7-fold acceleration in artificial intelligence (AI) workloads. Additionally, it introduces the RDNA 3 architecture to its GPU, significantly elevating gaming experiences and ray tracing capabilities.

Manufactured using Samsung’s advanced 4LPP+ process, recent revelations by enthusiasts suggest a yield rate of 60%, slightly trailing behind TSMC’s N4P process at 70%. Yet, considering Samsung’s yield was a mere 25% approximately 12 to 18 months prior, this represents a monumental stride in progress.

Despite the 4LPP+ process not equating to the N4P’s efficiency, and the Exynos 2400 not outperforming Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 by a wide margin, the disparity has considerably narrowed. Samsung is poised to amplify production, maintaining a 60% yield rate. Rumors hint at Google’s forthcoming Tensor G4 potentially employing the 4LPP+ manufacturing process later this year, bearing similarities to the Exynos 2400, raising anticipation for further improvements in yield rates.

The Exynos 2400’s CPU configuration features a sophisticated quad-cluster architecture, comprising a super-core (Cortex-X4@3.20GHz), two high-frequency large cores (Cortex-A720@2.90GHz), three medium-frequency large cores (Cortex-A720@2.60GHz), and four efficiency cores (Cortex-A520@2.00GHz), totaling ten cores. It also incorporates a “17K MAC” NPU and an integrated 5G modem capable of delivering downlink speeds of up to 12.1Gbps and uplink speeds of up to 3.67Gbps, supporting Sub-6GHz with downlink/uplink speeds of 9.64/2.55Gbps.
