Samsung would be working on the development of the Exynos 2500, a gaming chip that appears to be the South Korean company’s “Dream Team”.
Samsung is working on its new Exynos 2500 chip, and this SoC is said to be the company’s Dream Team chip, with four high-performance Cortex-X cores that could put the competition on edge. According to info from @OreXda on Twitter, the Exynos 2500 features four Cortex-X5 cores operating at different clock speeds, with one Cortex-X5 clocking between 3.20 and 3.30 GHz and the rest three cores that will operate in the 2.30-2.50 GHz range. The chip will also have Cortex-A730 and Cortex-A520 cores, designed by ARM.
The Exynos 2500 is still in development and not much else is known at the moment except that it should include a custom GPU from Samsung based on AMD IP. The specific details of the GPU, such as the name or specifications, are not yet known. However, its presence could guarantee a higher quality gaming experience on future Samsung tops.
Previous rumors suggested the Exynos 2500 would only be available in two years, meaning it will likely launch with the unveiling of the Galaxy S25 series. However, there will be stiff competition between Samsung and Qualcomm, which is expected to announce its new Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 processor with Oryon cores, which will offer superior multi-thread performance over Apple’s M2.
Given that the supposed launch of the Exynos 2500 is still a long way off, Samsung could use the second generation 3nm GAA process to mass-produce this dream team chip. However, at the moment, all of this information should be taken with some caution until there are any details officially confirmed by Samsung. In any case, the Exynos 2500 looks promising, and the market is eagerly awaiting the release of this innovative chip.
