Samsung just announced its latest Exynos 2100 SoC. This SoC uses 5nm EUV (extreme ultraviolet) lithography processing technology for better power efficiency.

Exynos 2100 is a 5nm SoC that has a tri-cluster CPU structure. It includes Arm Cortex-X1 core that runs at up to 2.9GHz and is optimized for peak performance. Other three Cortex-A78 cores run at 2.8GHz for balanced processing and the rest four Cortex-A55 cores run at 2.2GHz for efficiency. The Soc promises 30% improved multi-core performance than its predecessor.

The SoC is paired with Arm’s second-generation Valhall architecture-based Mali-G78 MP14 GPU that promises improved graphic performance. It supports the latest APIs such as Vulkan and OpenCL. It also has an exclusively developed Amigo power distribution solution promising an improved high-performance gaming experience.

Exynos 2100 supports LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage. It also supports a 144Hz display, 10-bit video, and HDR display. It supports up to 200MP single rear camera and 32MP+32MP dual camera. The Soc also supports up to 8K 60fps playback and 4K 120 fps recording.

It comes with an integrated 5G modem that can 7.35 Gbps downlink speeds on a mmWave network and 5.1 Gbps on a sub-6 network.
