In keeping with the Korea Financial Every day, the premiere of a high-performance chip from Samsung, which can almost definitely be known as the Exynos 2200, is scheduled for the second half of this 12 months. It will likely be a 5-nanometer chipset that may obtain an AMD Radeon graphics subsystem. The brand new processor has “distinctive processing energy and vitality effectivity.”
The Exynos 2200 platform might be Samsung’s reply to the Apple M1 chip. Initially, the processor will discover its use within the firm’s laptops working Home windows; and ultimately it should get to different devices of the corporate. Particularly, it could possibly grow to be the “coronary heart” of the Galaxy Tab S8 and Galaxy Z Fold Tab tablets; and likewise don’t exclude the opportunity of its look within the flagships of the Galaxy S22 household.
If the Exynos 2200 does come out; Samsung would be the second firm after Huawei to put in its personal processor in Home windows laptops.
In mid-2019, it grew to become recognized in regards to the licensing settlement between Samsung and AMD; which ought to outcome within the launch of the Exynos chip with AMD graphics. The emergence of such a processor is essential for the corporate; to lastly get a really aggressive product by way of graphics efficiency.
Samsung unveils DDR5 RAM with CXL bus
In a seperate new, Samsung Electronics introduced the beginning of manufacturing of the world’s first reminiscence modules with the CXL (Compute Categorical Hyperlink) bus. Such modules fully change the concept of RAM. The reminiscence unit can join utilizing PCIe 5.zero protocols and have a capability of as much as one terabyte or extra; and also can concurrently be the bottom reminiscence of a processor, video card and accelerators. This may change loads in AI and efficiency computing.
The brand new modules have been examined on techniques powered by Intel processors, Samsung mentioned. AMD additionally praised the capabilities of the CXL reminiscence modules. AMD joined the CXL consortium in 2019 and commenced to actively take part in its actions. Though Intel was the initiator of the CXL normal, AMD appreciated the flexibility of the brand new interface to extend efficiency and broaden the scalability of the reminiscence subsystem and the computing system as an entire.
Not so way back it grew to become recognized that Micron additionally determined to depend on the CXL interface sooner or later launch of merchandise primarily based on RAM. For DRAM chip producers, this might be a really, very excessive added worth product. Clearly, reminiscence modules with CXL interface will eat an enormous variety of DRAM chips and they’ll price loads when it turns into fashionable. Reminiscence producers have discovered a brand new marketplace for themselves. Hopefully, this won’t result in a big leap available in the market for standard laptop reminiscence.
We add that Samsung didn’t specify the efficiency traits of the brand new product; however claims that the latency of accessing a reminiscence financial institution within the type of a module with a CXL bus is considerably lowered in comparison with conventional RAM modules.
