    Exynos 2400 with 10-core CPU gets detailed after Galaxy S24 launch

    After unveiling its new high-end smartphones a few hours ago, Samsung has detailed its newest in-house flagship processor: Exynos 2400. The chip was announced a few months ago, but it was never detailed until yesterday. After using Qualcomm's Snapdragon chips in all its high-end phones last year, the South Korean firm has come back to its Exynos chips for some phones in the lineup. The Galaxy S24 and the Galaxy S24+ use the Exynos 2400 processor in most countries worldwide.

    Let us have a look at its specifications.

    Exynos 2400 has a 10-core CPU with the latest ARM cores and AMD RDNA3-based Xclipse 940 GPU

    Samsung Exynos 2400

    The Exynos 2400 is a 4nm chip made using Samsung Foundry's new and improved process called 4LPP+ (or SF4P). It is the company's third-generation 4nm process that offers improved performance and power efficiency. In comparison, the Exynos 2200 used Samsung's first-generation 4nm process called 4LPE (or SF4E). The chip has a 10-core CPU consisting of one Cortex-X4 core clocked at 3.2GHz, two Cortex-A720 cores clocked at 2.9GHz, three Cortex-A720 cores clocked at 2.6GHz, and four Cortex-A520 cores clocked at 1.95GHz. These clock speeds are lower than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor that's made by TSMC on its second-generation 4nm process (N4P).

    Exynos 2400 is also the first Exynos processor from Samsung to use a chip packaging feature called FOWLP (Fan-out Wafer Level Package) that improves thermal management, which means the chip will stay cooler even under sustained loads for a longer time.

    Samsung Exynos 2400 Xclipse 940 GPU AMD RDNA3

    The new Exynos 2400 chip also features the Xclipse 940 GPU, which is based on AMD's latest RDNA3 graphics processing technology. Samsung claims that it is 70% faster than the Xclipse 920 GPU used inside the Exynos 2200. It features dedicated hardware raytracing accelerators for improved raytracing performance in games. Raytracing brings more realistic shadows, lights, and reflections, making games look more realistic. The GPU can drive QHD+ screens at a 144Hz refresh rate or 4K screens at a 120Hz refresh rate. It also supports HDR, HDR10+, and HLG. The chip supports video playback of up to 8K resolution at 60fps.

    The built-in ISP supports camera sensors with a resolution of up to 320MP. It can capture 108MP frames at zero shutter lag (30fps) or 64MP + 32MP frames with zero shutter lag (30fps) simultaneously. It can also record up to 4K 120fps or 8K 30fps videos with EIS.

    Connectivity features of the Exynos 2400 include BeiDou (BDS), Galileo, GLONASS, GPS, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.3, NFC, and USB 3.2 Type-C. Since it features a built-in 5G NR modem, it is compatible with mmWave and sub-6GHz 5G networks in both SA (StandAlone) and NSA (Non-StandAlong) modes. It is also backward compatible with 4G LTE, 3G, and 2G networks. Samsung claims a maximum download speed of up to 12.1Gbps and upload speeds of up to 3.67Gbps on a mmWave 5G network. On a sub-6GHz 5G network, the modem inside the Exynos 2400 supports download speeds of up to 9.64Gbps and upload speeds of up to 2.55Gbps. The maximum download and upload speeds on 4G LTE are 3Gbps (Cat.24 with 8x Carrier Aggregation) and 422Mbps (with Cat.22 4x Carrier Aggregation).

    The Exynos 2400 also features a built-in NPU that is 14.7x faster than the NPU used inside the Exynos 2200 chipset. It offers on-device AI processing for several tasks, including text-to-image generation, text-to-text translation, Generative AI-based content fill, object recognition in images and videos, and image processing for camera-related tasks. You can watch all those features (and some more) in our detailed One UI 6.1 video below. All those features are available on the Galaxy S24 and the Galaxy S24+, which use the Exynos 2400 processor in all the countries except Canada, China, and the US.
