Samsung Exynos 2100 5G

Samsung Exynos 2100 5G

The Samsung Exynos 2100 5G is a high end SoC with 8 cores in three clusters (1x Exynos X1 2.9 GHz/ 3x Cortex-A78 2.8 GHz/ 4x A55 2.2 GHz) and a integrated ARM Mali-G78MP14 GPU (+40% faster versus Mali-G77MP11). Integrates a 5 G modem with up to 7.35 Gbps (5G NR Sub-6Hz, 5G NR mmWave, LTE Cat.24 DL / Cat.22 UL). The chip supports single cameras with up to 200 MP or dual-cameras with 32 MP each, UFS v3.1 stsorage and LPDDR5 memory. Videos can be decoded up to 8K60 in 10-bit HEVC or 30fps in VP9/AV1. Encoding is supported in 8K30 HEVC and VP9. For AI calculations the Exynos 2100 integrates a triple core NPU and DSP. The chip is manufactured in 5LPE at Samsung.

The processor performance in our tests with the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra is slightly below the Snapdragon 888 (numbers from the Qualcomm own test device) but clearly higher than the old Snapdragon 865+. Compared to Apple, the single thread performance is similar to the old Apple A12. Multi-thread-performance is better and between the A13 and current A14 CPU. All in all, the Exynos 2100 should be the second fastest SoC for Android devices and only slightly behind the Snapdragon 888 in CPU performance. Therefore, all demanding applications should run easily on the 2100.
