Samsung had become tired of the way Qualcomm and even MediaTek handled its Exynos chipsets like a 98-pound beach bum that was constantly getting sand kicked in its face. In response, Samsung sent in a coupon it had discovered on a comic strip’s back and worked out daily to get stronger. The next Exynos 2400, which features a deca-core design, is now aiming to become one of the chip industries.
The most recent information regarding the Exynos 2400 SoC comes from tipster RGcloudS, who claims that the final configuration and packaging details are still unknown as Samsung considers its options for the chipset that may power the Galaxy S24 line, which is expected to be the company’s flagship product next year. Although the Exynos 2400 will have 10 CPU cores, not all of them will be active at once, the tipper did point this out. Instead, each task’s fundamental usage will be tailored to its own needs.
The Exynos 2400 was supposed to be manufactured using the Fo-WLP, or fan-out wafer-level packaging, technology, according to the initial speculations. A chip becomes thinner and more energy-efficient thanks to packaging technologies. The chip, however, might be upgraded to the I-Cube technology, according to the tip. According to Samsung, this is “a heterogeneous integration technology that stacks one or more High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) dies and one or more logic dies (CPU, GPU, etc.) horizontally on top of a silicon interposer, letting multiple dies work as a single chip in one package.”
The Exynos 2400 scored close to the Apple M2 chip in a prior benchmark test, which is an impressive result. The Exynos 2400 must, at the absolute least, keep up with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, MediaTek Dimensity 9400, and A17 Bionic if Samsung is to demonstrate to the world that it has developed a new, more powerful Exynos chip with excellent energy efficiency.
An earlier report suggested that the Exynos 2400 would include a powerful Cortex-X4 CPU core, two Cortex-A720 Performance cores operating at high clock speeds, three additional Cortex-A720 Performance cores operating at lower clock speeds, and four Cortex-A520 Efficiency cores. Again, these are rumored specifications, and we eagerly await the official specs for the application processor that aims to demonstrate to the world an enlarged Exynos chipset.
