Samsung has officially unveiled its latest Exynos 2100 chipset, a 5nm processor with an integrated 5G modem.

In line with previous rumors, the Exynos 2100 processor adopts the Cortex-X1 by ARM, which boasts a peak clock speed of 2.9GHz. The CPU layout consists of three Cortex-A78 cores and four Cortex-A55 efficiency cores. The company claims it’s 30% faster than the Exynos 990 in multi-core workload.


Just like the new Snapdragon 888, the Exynos 2100 is built from Samsung’s 5nm EUV process.

As for the GPU, it boasts a 14-core Mali-G78 graphics card. Samsung claims that it is 40% more powerful. Meanwhile, a triple-core NPU boasts a new architecture that can reach up to 26 TOPS of flops.


We then have a new Image Signal Processor (ISP), which can support cameras with up to 200-megapixels. In more real-world use, this means it can handle six different sensors and process data on four of them, all at the same time.

Partnered with its NPU, the Multi-camera and Frame Processor (MCFP) can combine images from different cameras for a better shot.

For connectivity, the Exynos 2100 has an integrated 5G modem, similar to the Exynos 990 and Exynos 1080. It can provide up to 7.35Gbps of download speeds under mmWave, with 5.1Gbps on sub-6 network.

Already out for mass production, we expect to see the Exynos 2100 debut on the Galaxy S21 series that is coming out this January 14.
