Exynos 2500 leaks: 3nm process, 3.2Ghz, might be better than SD 8 Gen 3 and Apple’s A17 Pro?

Samsung’s recent unveiling of the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ showcased the incorporation of the company’s Exynos 2400 SoC in select markets. Despite this recent revelation, a leak has already emerged, providing insights into the forthcoming Exynos 2500 chipset intended for deployment in the Galaxy S25 family a year from now.

Exynos 2500

Reportedly maintaining the 10-core configuration of its predecessor, the Exynos 2500 will introduce ARM’s upcoming CPU cores, marking a technological advancement. Crafted using Samsung’s second-generation 3nm process (3nm GAP/SF3), it is purportedly superior to TSMC’s current 3nm process in terms of both area and efficiency.

The CPU composition of the Exynos 2500 is rumored to include a single Cortex-X5 core clocked at 3.2 GHz or higher, three Cortex-A730 cores ranging between 2.3 GHz to 2.5 GHz, two additional Cortex-A730 cores, and four power-efficient Cortex-A520 cores.

The speculation surrounding the Cortex-X5 CPU core hints at a potential performance surpassing that of Apple’s latest custom CPU core, rendering the Exynos 2500 a chip of significant interest in terms of performance capabilities. However, its efficiency remains an aspect yet to be unveiled, with ample time for further leaks to illuminate this facet.

In the realm of GPU advancements, the Exynos 2500 is anticipated to feature AMD’s RDNA-based Xclipse 950, a notable upgrade from the Xclipse 940 found in the Exynos 2400. The latter has already demonstrated superiority over the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 in raytracing.

Given the competitive positioning of the Exynos 2400 in benchmarks relative to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, the anticipated improvements in the Exynos 2500 may herald a scenario where Exynos regains parity with Snapdragon, marking a noteworthy shift after an extended period of divergence.
