Samsung to Use Exynos 2500 in Galaxy S25 and Galaxy Book Laptops

Samsung is reportedly planning to use its next-generation flagship processor, the Exynos 2500, in the Galaxy S25 and Galaxy Book series laptops.

The next generation of Samsung’s Exynos series processors will be produced in two versions with different numbers of cores. The Exynos 2500 will be available in 8-core and 10-core versions, and each of these models will be used in different phones and tablets.

Samsung released the Galaxy S23 series only with Snapdragon chips, but the Galaxy S24 series will be released in two versions with the Exynos 2400 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chips. Apparently, the South Korean tech giant plans to unveil the next generation of Exynos chips next year as well.

A leaker named OreXda posted on XDA (formerly Twitter) that Samsung has decided to use the 8-core version of the Exynos 2500 in its smartphones. The source also claims that the 10-core model of the SoC will be used in products such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab and Samsung Galaxy Book laptops.

The Exynos 2500 will likely use a 4+4 layout similar to the Dimensity 9300 in the CPU unit. It was previously reported that Samsung plans to use the Snapdragon X Elite chip in the next generation of Galaxy Book, so it is not surprising that Samsung laptops will also be offered with the Exynos 2500 chip.

Other reports suggest that the Exynos 2500 will use a neural processing unit (NPU) that will bring advanced artificial intelligence capabilities. Samsung is said to be adding a new section called TPU to its new chip, in addition to the existing G-NPU and S-NPU NPUs.

 

Additional Information:

The Exynos 2500 is expected to be manufactured using Samsung’s 3nm GAAFET process.

The 8-core version of the Exynos 2500 is rumored to have a 1+3+4 core configuration, with a Cortex-X5 prime core, three Cortex-A715 cores, and four Cortex-A510 cores.

The 10-core version of the Exynos 2500 is rumored to have a 1+3+4+2 core configuration, with a Cortex-X5 prime core, three Cortex-A715 cores, four Cortex-A510 cores, and two Cortex-A310 cores.

The Exynos 2500 is expected to be integrated with an AMD Radeon GPU.

The Exynos 2500 is expected to be released in Q4 2023 or Q1 2024.
