Samsung Exynos 2400 to bring a massive increase in GPU performance
Samsung is reportedly working on a new flagship chipset expected to be called the Exynos 2400. According to a leak on Twitter, the SoC will incorporate a new RDNA2-based graphics unit with 6WGP. This has four times as many compute units as the Xclipse 920 GPU in the Exynos 2200.

WGP stands for “workgroup processor” and is part of the RDNA architecture developed by AMD. One WGP includes 2 compute units in the new RDNA2 solution, which means we get 12 in total. Meanwhile, the previous GPU only had 3CU. Things like clock speed and architecture will of course also play a role in overall performance, but are unlikely to change dramatically.
Samsung is working with AMD and game developers to implement ray tracing technologies in its latest chips. One of the first games was supposed to be Diablo: Immortal for Android, but to this day, Exynos 2200-powered smartphones cannot run the highest graphics setting of the title.
Previous reports suggested that the Exynos 2400 will have a 10-core CPU with a prime Cortex-X4 core, two Cortex-A720 units at a higher frequency, three more Cortex-A720 cores clocked lower and four power-saving Cortex-A520 cores .
The Exynos 2400 may power the Galaxy S24 series expected to arrive early next year.
