The Exynos flagship chipsets have been criticized for a few reasons like having worse battery life, slower performance, and more compared with Qualcomm's flagship chips. Clearly the company's most powerful processor by far, the Exynos 2100 is expected to close the performance gap with its closest rival, the Snapdragon 888. "Powered by the flagship Snapdragon 888 in select regions, the new Galaxy S21 series pushes the boundaries of what's possible in mobile".

Tesla Asked to Recall 158,000 Vehicles Over Flash Memory Failure
The NHTSA, the auto safety agency of the USA , made the request through a formal letter on Wednesday sent directly to Tesla . The request isn't binding but, if Tesla refuses, they'll have to provide a full explanation for not issuing a recalling.

The Exynos 2100 SoC offers an octa-core processing through the tri-cluster structure that includes a Cortex-X1 core at up to 2.9GHz, three high-performing Cortex-A78 cores, and four power-efficient Cortex-A55 cores. The Exynos 2100 SoC also has ARM Mali-G78 GPU which Samsung says is 40% better in graphic performance than the Exynos 990. There is also a new tri-core NPU to boost performance on artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) processing. Exynos 2100 can perform up to 26-trillion-operations-per-second (TOPS) with more than twice the power efficiency than the previous generation. The chipset houses an all-new image signal processor (ISP) which can support sensors with up to 200 megapixels. The completely re-designed 6th generation Qualcomm® AI Engine with the new Qualcomm® Hexagon (TM) 780 processor enables premium experiences that blend AI with professional cameras, elite gaming, lightning-fast connectivity, and more. It also comes with a content-aware feature that helps the camera in intelligently recognising the subject and adjust camera settings for a better image. The modem delivers a maximum downlink speed of up to 5.1-gigabits per second (Gbps) in sub-6-gigahertz (GHz) and 7.35Gbps in mmWave, or up to 3.0Gbps in 4G networks with 1024 Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) support. Samsung has said that this chipset has support for video encoding of up to 4K UHD at 120 fps and LPDDR5 memory. The chipset is expected to be a part of the Galaxy S21 series in most markets, while its U.S. version is likely to be powered by the Snapdragon 888. However, the North America market will get the S21 series with Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC under the hood. Industry experts predict the powerful new chip will be used in Galaxy S21, Samsung's new flagship smartphone scheduled for release in the first half of this year.
