After “ignoring” that he had announced a launch event for his new Exynos 2200 processor, a Samsung explained himself saying that he will launch the SoC only with a new one smartphone. The manufacturer took the opportunity to refute the rumors that it would be having problems in the manufacture of Exynos. Now comes the information that yes, everything is right in the foundries. The problem is only in itself Exynos 2200.
Exynos 2200 with overheating problem
With the postponement of the presentation of the Exynos 2200 (scheduled for January 11th), the benchmarks wherein processor below the competitor were credited as one of the reasons. THE SoC gives Samsung was not in a performance to compete with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, gives Qualcomm. Another reason presented yesterday, and contradicting today by the Samsung, were the problems in the factory of the Exynos.
But the leaker Ice Universe (always him… or almost always him) posted another story on Weibo. According to internal sources (journalistic name for employees) of the Ice Universe, The Exynos 2200 is overheating when reaching higher clocks in the GPU, made in partnership with the OMG. THE Samsung expected that the cores of the GPU run at up to 1.9 GHz. The saying goes that wanting is not power, and the South Korean had to reduce the clocks so that the smartphone don’t turn into a plate. First Samsung down to 1.69 GHz, still hot. Then it ran at 1.49 GHz and the temperature remained an issue. THE GPU it only stopped overheating with 1.29 GHz. The company now wants to leave the hardware running at 1.49 GHz without overheating.
