Samsung Electronics revealed its first premium 5G-integrated processor chip, Exynos 2100, that would drive the company’s leading Galaxy smartphones through an online conference at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2021) ahead of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Unpacked event scheduled this week.
Kang In-yup, Samsung’s System LSI Business president, said during the conference that the company feels delighted to unveil the Exynos 2100. Samsung’s most advanced mobile processor includes a 5G modem with a power-efficient 5-nanometer process node setting the standard for future mobile devices.
Additionally, Kang stated that the Exynos team commits to provide premium mobile computing experiences by applying innovations to processors that make up today’s smart devices.
The 2021 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), usually held in Las Vegas, proceeded fully online this year with almost 2,000 participants. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic’s health risks, the participating companies held virtual showrooms during the four-day event.
The new chip built on the 5-nanometer extreme ultra-violet (EUV) node runs up to 30 percent faster than its predecessors. It also includes the most cutting-edge central processing unit and a graphic processing unit.
Its multi-core performance also exceeds that of the first Exynos, and the chip’s graphic processing functions faster by 40 percent. This performance enables the Exynos to maximize the user’s experience in mixed reality, virtual reality, augmented reality, and gaming.
The Exynos 2100 show off uncompromising artificial intelligence (AI) capacities because of its newly designed tri-core neural processing unit. It could execute up to 26 trillion operations per second and contain twice the original models’ power efficiency.
Exynos 2100’s image signal processor maintains camera resolutions of up to 200-megapixels. It could link up to six individual sensors and simultaneously process four sensors for richer multi-camera experiences.
Samsung intends to mass-produce Exynos 2100, and market experts expect that the Galaxy S21 would contain the powerful new chip. The company would make the Galaxy S21 available in the first half of this year.
