Samsung’s next-generation Exynos processor will be built on the 5-nanometer manufacturing process. It offers enhanced features and “exceptional computing power and battery efficiency” per. Sources.
The Exynos 2200 chip is tipped as a rival to the Apple M1. Initially, Samsung is expected to use it in a Windows-powered laptop, but eventually the use of the chipset will be extended to other devices.
