A few months ago a leaker claimed that the Exynos 2200 would beat the Snapdragon 898 and now we have the first Geekbench results.
Ice Universe has identified a benchmark performed by a Samsung SM-S906B, which is expected to be a prototype of the Galaxy S22 +. It is powered by the S5E9925 chip, which should be exactly theExynos 2200. It has a Cortex-X2 main core, three Cortex-A710 performance cores and four Cortex-A510 cores for energy saving, the first to support the ARMv9 architecture. The GPU is one AMD RDNA2 Mobile Radeon.
Confirming that this is a prototype is that the Cortex-X2 core only runs at 2.59 GHz, while the final chip is expected to go up to 3.0 GHz. This means that the single-core score is lower than that. which will be in the final product, but the multi-core score suffers as well. Cortex-A710 cores run at 2.50 GHz, A510 cores at 1.73 GHz.
Both the Exynos 2200 and Snapdragon 898 will likely be manufactured in the same Samsung foundry with a 4nm manufacturing process. At the moment the score of 1073 in single-core and 3389 in multi-core is much higher than that recorded by a live smartphone with Snapdragon 898 chip. The latter obtained a score of 720 points in single-core and 1919 in multi-core. Clearly we will have to wait for the release of some product to evaluate the real differences.
Digital Chat Station then added some more details on the GPU of the new Exynos chip, codenamed “Voyager EVT1” and runs Vulkan 1.2.174 with an open source AMD driver. This might be interesting as drivers are often blamed for the short support cycle of Android devices.
