The Exynos 2200 and its mRDNA AMD GPU show 25% performance throttling by third round of benchmark tests
Samsung will release the Exynos 2200 in a few months as the successor to the Exynos 2100 currently powering the Galaxy S21 series in Europe. One of the major issues with recent flagship Exynos chipsets has been sustained performance, and new information suggests that may still be an issue on the Exynos 2200.
According to a series of benchmark scores leaked by tipster Front Tron, the Exynos 2200 and its mRDNA GPU still show weakness in sustained performance. The Exynos 2200 shows about a 25% drop in performance by the third round of benchmarking, dropping from 170.7 fps to 127.5 fps on the Manhattan test. That drop in performance is mirrored in other GPU benchmarks like the Aztec Normal and Aztec high tests.
While this may not sound impressive, it's a big improvement on previous Exynos chipsets. The Exynos 990 on the Galaxy S20 routinely saw performance drops north of 50% on sustained runs. There's also the fact that these benchmarks were run on beta drivers. The final implementation of the Exynos 2200 should be better.
30% or more throttling is not happening as of now.— Tron ❂ (@FrontTron) September 5, 2021
Since Exynos 2100 can't go past peak 30 FPS in Aztec High, users will be able to feel the big performance upgrade.
For peak graphics test results, refer to the previous tweet tested in 1.31Ghz.https://t.co/WURgUNIVWp
