A few months ago, Samsung had announced that it would start using AMD’s GPUs inside future Exynos processors. The first AMD-powered Exynos chipset is expected to be the Exynos 2200, and it will debut with the Galaxy S22 series. Now, the first benchmark scores of that chipset have surfaced, showcasing the Exynos 2200’s performance and clock speeds.
The Galaxy S22+ (with model number SM-S906B) showed up in Geekbench’s database earlier today. The smartphone is powered by the S5E9925 (Exynos 2200) chipset and features 8GB of RAM. The processor scored 1,073 points in the single-core CPU test and 3,389 points in the multi-core CPU test. The benchmark scores look extremely unimpressive, but that could be a result of the device being in the power-saving mode.
The Exynos 2200 seems to feature an octa-core CPU with one prime CPU core clocked at 2.59GHz, three high-performance CPU cores clocked at 2.5GHz, and four power-efficient CPU cores clocked at 1.73GHz. It was expected that the Exynos 2200 could use ARM‘s recently announced Cortex-X2 CPU, Cortex-A710, and Cortex-A510 CPU cores based on the ARM v9 architecture. However, the benchmark listing shows ARM v8 CPU cores instead. The chipset also features an AMD RDNA2-based Mobile Radeon GPU and an integrated 5G modem.
The AMD GPU inside the Exynos chipset has various modern features like ray-tracing and variable rate shading. Previous benchmarks have shown that the Exynos 2200’s GPU performance is better than the Apple A14 Bionic. However, only time will tell how it will actually perform in real-world use.
