Unleashing Power: Exynos 2500 Specs Leak Amidst Anticipation for the Galaxy S25 Series

Exynos 2500: The Future Unleashed — A Sneak Peek into Samsung's Next Power Move!

 

Hot on the heels of Samsung’s recent Galaxy S24 series launch, excitement is already building for the future, with leaks surfacing about the potential powerhouse, the Exynos 2500 processor. While the Exynos 2400 is yet to undergo widespread testing, anticipation for the Exynos 2500 is on the rise, suggesting it could revolutionize Samsung’s chipset game.

Exynos 2500: A Glimpse into the Future

The Exynos 2500, tentatively named, is poised to drive at least some units within the Galaxy S25 series. According to tipster @OreXda, this powerhouse will feature a 10-core CPU, similar to the Exynos 2400. What sets it apart is the utilization of Samsung’s cutting-edge chip manufacturing process and ARM’s upcoming CPU cores.

 

Key Specifications: Unveiling the Power Within

  1. Advanced Manufacturing Process:
    • The Exynos 2500 is set to be the pioneer in adopting Samsung Foundry’s second-generation 3nm (3nm GAP/SF3) process.
    • This advancement is touted to outshine TSMC’s 3nm process, excelling in both area coverage and efficiency.
  2. CPU Configuration:
    • The 10-core CPU configuration includes:
      • One Cortex-X5 CPU core clocked at 3.2GHz or higher.
      • Three Cortex-A720 CPU cores clocked at 2.3GHz or above.
      • Three additional Cortex-A720 CPU cores.
      • Four Cortex-A530 CPU cores.
  3. Potential Performance Dominance:
    • ARM’s upcoming Blackhawk CPU core (Cortex-X5) could propel the Exynos 2500 to surpass Apple’s latest custom CPU core in single-core performance.
    • ARM’s teased lineup includes the Blackhawk (Cortex-X5) prime CPU core, Chaberton (Cortex-A730) performance CPU core, and Hayes (Cortex-A530) power efficiency CPU cores.
  4. GPU Upgrade:
    • The Exynos 2500 is expected to feature AMD’s RDNA-based Xlipse 950 GPU, promising enhanced performance.
    • Building on the success of the Exynos 2400’s AMD RDNA3-based Xclipse 940 GPU, the Exynos 2500 aims to set new benchmarks, especially in ray-tracing performance.

Looking Ahead: A Potential ‘Dream Chip’

As we anticipate the Exynos 2500’s official announcement before year-end, with a projected readiness in early 2025 for the Galaxy S25 series launch, Samsung appears to be on the cusp of a significant turnaround. The combination of Samsung Foundry’s 3nm process, optimized by Samsung, and ARM’s formidable Blackhawk CPU cores could position the Exynos 2500 as a true ‘Dream Chip’ for the tech giant. There’s even speculation about a potential rebranding to shed the past image and embrace this new era of Exynos excellence.
