Samsung has announced the release of the Exynos 2400 chipset, designed to compete with other chips like the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, Tensor G3, and Dimensity 9300. It brings significant performance improvements, especially in generative AI. But will it be enough to overcome the Exynos’ shaky reputation in recent years?

According to Samsung, the 4nm-manufactured Exynos 2400 offers “a 1.7x increase in CPU performance and a notable 14.7x increase in AI performance” compared to the Exynos 2200, which was used in European Galaxy S22 phones. Additionally, it can power a 200 MP camera sensor

The Samsung Exynos brand took a hit this year when Samsung opted to use Snapdragon chips globally in the Galaxy S23 series. The Exynos 2200, in particular, faced challenges regarding battery life, efficiency, and gaming performance, factors that may have contributed to Samsung’s decision not to use the Exynos 2300.

However, strong rumors this year suggest that Samsung intends to use the Exynos 2400 in Europe for the Galaxy S24 and S24 Plus, instead of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. Allegedly, the S24 Ultra will use the Snapdragon worldwide.

While the Galaxy S24 may continue to be one of the top Android smartphones, it’s intriguing that Samsung has returned to a two-tier silicon approach for its flagship release, a year after Qualcomm provided Samsung with an exclusive Snapdragon chip for the S23.

For this reason, it’s crucial to see what the Exynos 2400 has to offer. The fact that Samsung uses the two-year-old Exynos 2200 as a benchmark for the 2400 makes it challenging to evaluate at this stage.

Just like the Pixel 8, with its AI features powered by the Tensor, the Galaxy S24 with the Exynos will have enhanced AI capability for tools like “AI text-to-image generation,” something Samsung mentioned during its 2023 System LSI Tech Day event in San Jose.

Samsung also promises to employ “AI-based tracking technology” to capture fast-moving objects with 4X zoom “without any image degradation.”

Samsung has not yet revealed the cores of the Exynos 2400, but Phone Arena asserts that it will use a Cortex-X4 core with a clock speed of 3.19 GHz, five Cortex-A720 cores, and four Cortex-A520 cores. This configuration exactly matches that of the alleged Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 CPU; however, Qualcomm’s chip will have a noticeably higher frequency for all ten cores, giving Qualcomm-powered phones an edge.

As for the GPU, Samsung mentions that it will use the 940 Xclipse GPU, “based on the latest AMD RDNA 3 architecture.” It boasts “enhanced ray tracing capabilities” and new optical upgrades, though it’s not clear how much faster it is compared to the Xclipse 920, which also offers ray tracing.
