Samsung’s Exynos 2400 achieves 2x graphics boost with new Radeon-based GPU

Samsung delivers a 2x GPU performance boost on their Exynos 2400 SOC with RDNA 3 graphics

Samsung has revealed their new Galaxy S24 series of smartphones, and in many regions much of the series will be powered by Samsung’s new Exynos 2400 SOC. While Samsung’s S24 Ultra smartphone will exclusively use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen3 SOC, lower-tier models will feature a either Qualcomm or Samsung chips depending on your region.

With their new Exynos 2400 SOC, Samsung will be using their own 4nm LPP+ lithography node to create their new SOC. Additionally the CPU will feature newer ARM CPU cores and a new Xclipse graphics component. Likes its predecessor, Samsung’s Xclipse graphics unit is based on AMD’s RDNA graphics architecture. Specifically, the 2400 will use a Xclipse 940 RDNA 3 based GPU.

Last year, Samsung entered an agreement with AMD to continue using their Radeon graphics IP within their latest mobile SOCs.

On Twitter/X, @negativeonehero has released early graphics benchmark data for Samsung’s Exynos 2400. The new graphics chip is two times faster than the Exynos 2200, placing the SOC slightly ahead of Apple’s A17 PRO silicon. Despite this huge increase in performance, Samsung’s graphics solution remains behind Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen3 SOC.

Samsung’s latest Exynos SOC delivers a huge generational leap in GPU performance, though the company SOCs remain behind Qualcomm’s top models. Even so, Samsung’s new Exynos SOC will deliver a much better phone gaming experience to users.

Samsung are due to release their Galaxy S24 series of smartphones on January 30th. Pre-orders for this smartphone are available now. Full reviews for this product are expected soon.
