Exynos is the pride and pain of Samsung. On the one hand, the company is proud to have successfully organized the production of branded chips, and their presence in the market allows it not only to reduce its dependence on third-party manufacturers, but also to compete Qualcomm’s offerings. . On the other hand, Samsung’s flagship SoCs are inferior to the Snapdragon 800 series solutions. But, it looks like it could end with the upcoming Exynos 9925 SoC.

In the wake of growing criticism and accusations over the South Korean giant’s inability to create truly competitive chips, it appears to be seriously committed to proving otherwise. First, the company plans to rely on ARM solutions and has entered into an agreement to jointly develop chips. Second, he appealed for AMD’s support in creating mobile video accelerators.
According to the official Ice Universe source, the company is working on the Exynos 9925 chip, where the graphics accelerator will use AMD technologies to achieve high performance.
Recall that last year, Samsung and AMD entered into a multi-year agreement, under which the South Korean giant will have access to the RDNA graphics architecture for use in their chips. This will make it possible in the future to replace the graphics of Mali with more powerful solutions.
When will the Exynos 9925 be available? there is no information available. But given that there was earlier talk that AMD graphics won’t appear in Exynos until 2022, Samsung won’t announce the new chip until the second half of 2021.
Today, the company is also working on creating a 5nm Exynos 2100 processor, which is expected to form the basis of the company’s new flagships from 2021. It is predicted that it will not be able to bypass the Snapdragon 875. in terms of performance.
The first results of the Exynos 1080 SoC test in AnTuTu
Recently, it was learned that by the end of this year, Samsung will introduce a new Exynos 1080 chip and that the first in-car smartphone will be the Vivo X60. It will be a high-performance chip that, in AnTuTu, will be able to display a result of more than 650 thousand points.
This statement has been confirmed. The network disclosed the results of the test in AnTuTu of an unknown smartphone with the code name Orion and it is based on the Exynos 1080 5nm platform. His result is 693,600 points. And that’s more than the smartphones based on Snapdragon 865/865 + demonstrate.
We know that the Exynos 1080 chip owes its power to high performance Cortex-A78 cores. The Mali-G78 video accelerator is responsible for graphics processing. Interestingly, this processor is not designed to target Samsung flagship smartphones. Exynos 2100 SoC has been prepared for them, who eventually will receive a Cortex-X1 super-core.
As for the smartphone named Orion; the reference was able to recognize that it had a 2376 × 1080 display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. It also has 8 GB of LPDDR5 RAM, a 512 GB UFS 3.1 flash drive and the Android operating system 11.
