Future Samsung Exynos socs Will Have AMD GPUs Again – Tablets, Phones – News

Samsung and AMD continue their collaboration on graphics processors for mobile devices. Samsung continues to use AMD chips in its Exynos communities, as it has already done with the Galaxy S22, S22+, and S22 Ultra in Europe.

Extended agreement Applies again for several years, just like the first in 2019. AMD and Samsung want to bring “multiple generations” of Radeon products into a “more comprehensive suite” of Samsung Exynos-socs. So it’s not yet clear if AMD graphics will be limited to Samsung’s flagships, as it has been the case so far, or if cheaper devices will also come with it.

The GPU The only fruit this collaboration has hit the market so far is the Xclipse 920 GPU from the Exynos 2200. This GPU was based on the well-known RDNA 2 architecture from the Radeon RX6000 series, Xbox series, PlayStation 5 and Steam Deck. The chip’s graphical performance was disappointing, though it enabled advanced technologies like ray tracing and variable rate shading.

After integrating an AMD GPU into the S22, S22+, and S22 Ultra-socs, Samsung introduced the S23 series this year, which once again didn’t use an AMD GPU, but only featured a Snapdragon variant. So it wasn’t a final goodbye to AMD’s GPUs in its smartphones.

Finally, AnandTech notes It appears strongly that the terms under which the initial agreement from 2019 was signed will continue to apply. It states that Samsung is not allowed to compete with AMD with these GPUs. This means that AMD graphics for laptops, for example, do not have to come from Samsung.
