Back in 2019 AMD and Samsung Electronics announced a multi-year strategic partnership to allow Samsung to license AMD graphics IP to use it in its future SoCs. Samsung later confirmed its plans to launch SoCs with AMD Radeon graphics as early as 2021. Earlier this year when introducing the Exynos 2100, Samsung once again teased its next-gen Exynos processor with AMD graphics.
Today at the Computex 2021, AMD President and CEO Dr. Lisa Su announced that AMD has partnered with Samsung on its next generation Exynos SoC which will feature custom AMD RDNA 2 architecture-based graphics IP that brings raytracing and variable rate shading capabilities to flagship mobile devices. AMD CEO also said that Samsung will provide more details about the processor later this year.
Based on recent rumours, the upcoming flagship Exynos chip which could be Exynos 2200 with AMD GPU will power Samsung’s Windows 10 PC. Samsung Galaxy Book Go with Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c chip that surfaced recently could be introduced in coming weeks, and the next-gen Galaxy Book Go with the chip could arrive later this year. The chip should also power the Galaxy S22 that will launch early next year.
