Samsung has announced its new flagship processor, the Exynos 2400, which is expected to power the upcoming Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ smartphones. The Exynos 2400 is manufactured using a 4-nanometer process technology and features a quad-cluster design with a prime Cortex-X4 core, two clusters of Cortex-A720 cores, and four Cortex-A510 cores.
The Exynos 2400 has been tested on Geekbench 6, a popular benchmarking tool that measures CPU performance in different scenarios. According to leaked results, the Exynos 2400 posted a high score of 2,067 on Geekbench’s single-core test and 6,520 on the multicore test. These scores are higher than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, which is currently the most powerful chipset for Android smartphones. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 scored 1,979 and 5,148, respectively, on the same tests. This means that the Exynos 2400 has an improvement of roughly 5% on single-threaded performance and 22% on multi-threaded performance compared to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
The Exynos 2400 also boasts a powerful GPU, the Samsung Xclipse 940, which is based on AMD’s RDNA architecture. The GPU frequency is 1,200 MHz and it supports Vulkan and OpenCL graphics APIs. The Exynos 2400 scored 13,858 points in Geekbench’s Vulkan Benchmark and 26,829 points in OpenCL. These scores are impressive and indicate that the Exynos 2400 can handle high-end gaming and graphics-intensive tasks with ease.
The Exynos 2400 also supports LPDDR5X memory, UFS 4.0 storage, Wi-Fi 7, Bluetooth 5.4, and Exynos 5300 modem. The modem supports both sub-6GHz and mmWave bands of 5G network and can achieve download speeds of up to 10 Gbps and upload speeds of up to 3.87 Gbps. The Exynos 2400 can also support up to a single 320 MP camera or dual cameras of up to 200 MP each. It can also capture and playback videos in 8K resolution at 60 FPS.
The Exynos 2400 is expected to debut on the Galaxy S24 series, which is rumored to launch in February or March next year. The Galaxy S24 Ultra, however, will reportedly stick exclusively to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip, which is yet to be announced by Qualcomm. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is expected to be more powerful than the Exynos 2400 and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, but we will have to wait for official confirmation and benchmarks to see how they compare.
The Exynos 2400 is a significant leap for Samsung’s mobile processor division, which has been lagging behind Qualcomm for years. The chip shows that Samsung is serious about competing with Qualcomm in the high-end segment and delivering a premium performance to its customers. The Exynos 2400 could also pave the way for more Samsung devices with its own chips in other markets, where it currently relies on Qualcomm’s chips.
The Exynos 2400 is a promising processor that could make the Galaxy S24 series stand out from the crowd. It could also challenge Qualcomm’s dominance in the Android ecosystem and offer more choice and diversity to consumers. The Exynos 2400 is definitely a processor to watch out for in the coming months.
