Samsung Unleashes a beast Processor

A top-notch chip for 2021!

Samsung Exynos 2100

Samsung in previous month released its flagship processor Exynos 2100. Samsung fans being disappointed with most of the exynos releases, now Samsung comes with a great reply and release Exynos 2100 to make their fans happy. Exynos 2100 delivers an ARM Mali-G78 MP14 GPU, access to the powerhouse Cortex-X1 CPU core, with this powerful Cortex®-X1 CPU1× 2.90Ghz, the processor improves single-core performance by up to 19 percent and multi-core performance by up to 33 percent, which in turns make the processing faster and multitasking. Samsung proclaims Exynos 2100 as most powerful chip they have created, with such great performance and improvements, it provides high quality graphics to support high end games. AMIGO technology delivers stable frame rates, offering you an edge over the competition.

So lets talk more about the flagship-level features of Exynos 2100. Exynos 2100 as been outstanding with its camera functionality. It supports 8K resolution, upto 200MP cameras and 4K/60fps recording with 144Hz screen refresh rate. Samsung as joined its hands with Qualcomm® 5G modems, that supports mmWave and 5G sub 6Ghz. When if comes to connectivity, it supports WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.

Artificial intelligence is the most demanded technology in todays world. Every companies are evolving and developing AI operations. Exynos 2100 provides tri-core NPU(neural processing unit) for machine learning, comprehensive 5G capabilities and a 5nm design. What more is that, it can perform 26 trillion operations per second, 2 resulting in high-level AI performance. So there is no debating about the speed. Through the latest processor technology, Samsung promises better performance, AI capabilities, smarter intelligence and power efficiency, with such features it sets a new standard for premium mobile smart phone.

The powerful Exynos 2100 chipset out-shined Samsung’s previous chipset Exynos 990 which was featured in S20 Series, which supported two custom Mongoose M5 cores, two Cortex-A76 medium cores, and four Cortex-A55 cores, Mali-G77 MP11 GPU and a 7nm design. Exynos 990 faced criticism for poor power efficiency and graphics compared to Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. So thus markee the new beginning of Samsung’s in-house powerful Exynos 2100.

Samsung Exynos 2100 vs Qualcomm Snapdragon 888

There is no denying the fact that Samsung and Qualcomm runs the processor world, with unleashing better processor with good performance frequently. From 45nm chip size process to 5nm chip size process, we have come a long way now. All the recent processor release promise better performance and not to disappoint the end users. Recent processor releases includes Apple A14 bionic chip, Kirin 9000, Snapdragon 888, and Exynos 2100 which comes with 5nm SoC size.

So here lets compare Snapdragon 888 vs Exynos 2100.

You can expect closer performance and energy compatibility between Exynos and Snapdragon processor this generation. Both processor supports integrated 5G modems, sub6/mmWave and 5nm chipsets size. Though both the processor chipset have the same CPU core setup, Exynos 2100, 1x Cortex X1(2.91Ghz), 3×Cortex-A78(2.81Ghz) leads with slightly higher clock speed than Snapdragon 888 4×Cortex A55(1.8Ghz), 3x Cortex A78 (2.80GHz). Exynos 2100 has a better performance in CPU, but has less power efficiency compared to Snapdragon 888. Qualcomm’s SD888 better in many of the tasks than the Exynos 2100 and also consumes less power.

Since CPU and power efficiency are not the only features to compare. Since gaming as gained a lot popularity, its become important to provide a better performance and graphics. If Graphics performance is taken into consideration both Exynos 2100 and Snapdragon 888 are almost tied, but Qualcomm chip tends to offer slightly better frame rates in graphics benchmarks. Snapdragon 888 core provides 4 mb L3 cache whereas Exynos 2100 core provides 6mb L3 cache memory.

All this benchmarks tests credits to: Geekbench5, AnTuTu benchmark, GFXBench.

Exynos 2100 vs A14 Bionic Chipset

Apple is of its own league in almost everything. A14 chipset is the latest and most powerful processor launched by Apple. As mentioned even A14 chipset is fabricated on 5nm process size and provides outstanding power efficiency, graphics benchmarks and better performance. Apple A14 chipset is 16% faster than its previous version and is featured in iPhone 12 series and iPad Air. There is no debating, why Apple outruns most of brands. Apple A14 makes processors for the iPhones which is based on the ARM architecture. A14 Bionic chip featuring 40% faster CPU, 30% faster graphics, and 2x faster machine learning with next-generation Neural Engine network.

Apple A14 chipset 6 core ARMv8 (3.00Ghz) provides slightly higher clock speed than Exynos 2100 Cortex-X1(2.91Ghz). The SoC manufacturers at Samsung and TSMC, both fabricated chipset with 5nm process. Apple A14 includes 16 core neural engine that can perform 11 trillion operations per second whereas Exynos includes tri core NPU that can perform 26 trillion operations per second. This neural engine are used for machine learning operations. Apple A14 additionally as image processing for photography. Both chipsets support sub-6GHz and mmWave, 5G modems.

Apple A14 chip provides better performance than Exynos 2100, by which you can unlock new creative possibilities with photo editing, music creation, and much more.


The world is processing, in the blink of an eye you get to see new processor these days with better performance than old versions. Qualcomm, Apple, Samsung, Hisilion, Intel, AMD these companies really deserves lots of appreciation for there amazing work to develop SoC with new features for every release. To illustrate, Samsung released Exynos 990 chipset to compete Snapdragon 865, which unfortunately resulted as failure in some features in terms of multi core CPU functionality. Then Snapdragon 888 got released, for which Samsung came up with Exynos 2100 to compete with Apple A14 bionic chip and SD 888. So this competition is never ending process.

Samsung as really ruled the processor world in previous year with working for 2 different processor for premium smartphones, one with Qualcomm and other it’s own in-house Exynos. Samsung S21 series is likely to be launched with Exynos 2100. The Samsung end-users might have been disappointed with most of Exynos releases but Samsung with Exynos 2100 did a fine good, though it doesn’t really matter which version you get.

With the powerful Exynos 2100, Samsung marks the new beginning in Technology Field.
