Samsung Exynos Auto V920, a chip for autonomous cars based on RDNA2

The South Korean giant has presented the Exynos Auto V920, a chip aimed at autonomous cars with which Samsung has chosen to reuse the Xclipse 920 GPU, a solution that we already saw in the Exynos 2200 SoC, used in the Galaxy S22 smartphones. This graphics core uses AMD’s RDNA2 architecture.

The Exynos Auto V920’s CPU features a ten-core ARM CPU, making it one of the most powerful chips in its class. The core distribution of this CPU has been made into two blocks of four cores each and one block of two cores, all of them based on the Cortex-A78E architecture. Samsung has used its 5nm manufacturing node to bring this chip to life.

At the GPU level we have an RDNA2 solution that has support for up to six high-resolution displaysis prepared to offer an optimal experience with any infotainment system, supports 4K video decoding at 240 FPS and 4K video encoding at 120 FPS.

The Exynos Auto V920 SoC also features a dual-core neural processing unit that is 2.7 times faster, compared to the previous generation, processing workloads associated with AI, uses LPDDR5 memory with a bandwidth of 102 GB/s and uses the UFS 3.1 storage system. There is no doubt that this is a very complete and powerful chip.

This chip can work with up to twelve cameras, which means that it is prepared to be seamlessly integrated into vehicles that have autonomous driving systems, as we said at the beginning of the article. It is compatible with the new 144 dB HD, and features enhanced security systems to protect the integrity of the vehicle’s system.

The first cars to use the Exynos Auto V920 are expected to be the Next-generation Hyundai, which will be available sometime in 2025. It is important to remember that AMD has managed to carve out an important niche in the automotive world, and that its chips have been present in the Tesla infotainment system for some time, although in this case it is a much more powerful solution than the Exynos Auto V920.
