As we indicated yesterday, finally Samsung has delayed the launch of its new top-of-the-range SoC, the Exynos 2200. Although it was indicated that it was due to its poor performance, today the information is expanded knowing that it is due to a well-known problem and linked to the processes of Samsung Foundry: problems with temperatures (which obviously influence performance).
went back to being Ice Universe who expanded the information, revealing that the graphics AMD RDNA2 @ 4nm incorporated in the Exynos 2200 were designed to work at 1.90 GHz, but at that frequency there are temperature problems.
By lowering the frequency to 1.69 GHz, the temperature problems remained; so they lowered the frequencies back to 1.49 GHz, but temperatures remain high, and so far the company has only managed to get it to work at 1.29 GHz without temperature problems, which confirms the performance loss that places it below the Mali graphics of the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 or the Adreno of the Snapdragon 8 Gen1.
As indicated, to save dignity, they are trying to make it reach 1.49 GHz, “but it may not work. At present, the three departments of terminal, SoC, and foundry are in a frenzy”said Ice Universe.
These charts would arrive with 384 Stream ProcessorsAdd that to the company’s poor wafer performance and it’s easy to see where the problem lies. enough is the trouble for Samsung to have started erasing information, like any reference to the official announcement of the Exynos with RDNA2 graphics, which was going to take place yesterday.
