We’ll be seeing the new chipsets that will power 2021’s flagships being unveiled in the near future. Some Snapdragon 875 specs have now surfaced online and it brings good news for the Exynos 2100. That’s what we expect Samsung to call its Snapdragon 875 counterpart.
Samsung is going to maintain the Exynos and Snapdragon split for its Galaxy S21 series next year. However, its next Exynos chip is going to be much different than its predecessors. It won’t have a custom Mongoose core and that will help bridge the performance gap. If the early Snapdragon 875 specs are any indication, the Exynos 2100 will be a beast as well.
Snapdragon 875 specs drop hints about the Exynos 2100
Earlier reports have suggested that both next-gen Exynos and Snapdragon chipsets will have a 1 + 3 + 4 tri-cluster configuration. ARM’s X1 will be the prime core that provides maximum performance. It will be coupled with three Cortex-A78 high-performance core and four Cortex-A55 efficiency cores.
The leak reiterates a tri-cluster configuration for the Snapdragon 875. Diving into the specifics, it mentions that the X1 core will be clocked at 2.84GHz, the three Cortex-A78 cores at 2.42GHz and the four Cortex-A55 cores at 1.8GHz. The chipset will be built on the 5nm process and reports suggest that Samsung will be making it for Qualcomm.
It may very well be a similar arrangement for the Exynos 2100. ARM claims that the X1 is 23 percent faster than the new Cortex-A78 cores which themselves provide a 30 percent higher peak performance compared to the existing Cortex-A77 cores.
We should expect to see benchmarks surface in the coming weeks but as it stands, there’s hope that customers who get the Exynos variants may not feel that they got the short end of the stick.
