Samsung phones with Exynos Chip with ray tracing, variable-rate shading
Samsung partnered with AMD back in 2019 to bring next-gen GPU architecture to mobile devices. Now, we may finally have a timeframe as to when we’ll see the long-awaited flagship Exynos chipset with an AMD GPU.
AMD is partnering with Samsung on its next-generation Exynos SoC, which will feature custom AMD RDNA 2 architecture-based graphics IP that brings ray tracing and variable rate shading capabilities to flagship mobile devices.
Samsung would share more details about the new 5G chipset later this year. Samsung may make the follow-up to the Exynos 2100 official within the year. That means we can expect the new AMD-powered silicon to run the Galaxy S series flagships that launch in the first half of 2022.
A recent report also suggested that the rumored Exynos 2200 chip with the AMD GPU could come to laptops early as this year.
It’s too soon to say if the AMD GPU will bring about a big boost to the Exynos platform. However, graphics performance has always been a weak point for Samsung’s chips, and we hope to see an improvement with the new partnership in place.
