Earlier this year, AMD confirmed that Samsung's next-generation Exynos mobile SoCs would incorporate its RDNA 2 graphics technology. At the time, AMD said that the RDNA 2 intellectual property leveraged by the new Exynos family would "[bring] ray tracing and variable rate shading capabilities to flagship mobile devices." Now, Samsung is delving a little deeper into the ray-tracing capabilities of the upcoming [alleged] Exynos 2200. The company posted comparison images to its Weibo page, which shows a game scene rendered with and without ray tracing enabled. With the shot taken from a device powered by an Exynos SoC, we see enhanced lighting effects with the flames under the tank and the building... Read more...
Over the weekend, new renders leaked of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S22 Ultra flagship smartphone. The renders gave us our first look at a dramatic departure from the Galaxy S family with respect to design and showcased a look more akin to the stalled Galaxy Note series. Now, upcoming third-party cases presented by frequent gadget leaker Ice Universe seemingly confirm many of the design details seen in the earlier renders. For example, the cutout on the back of the case matches up with the odd-looking camera bump that could hold up to five cameras. We also see cutouts on the bottom of the phone for the USB-C port, speaker, and S Pen. While the current generation Galaxy S21 Ultra supports... Read more...
Samsung is prepping a powerhouse mobile SoC with the Exynos 2200, which will reportedly officially ship later this year. Earlier this week, some early benchmarks for the Exynos 2200 found their way onto the internet with an octa-core design headlined by an Arm Cortex-X2 "prime" core. We were warned at the time that clocks for the cores on the Exynos 2200 weren't final and that speeds (and performance) would improve with production silicon. Now, mobile leaker Ice Universe claims to have the final clock speeds for the SoC, with the prime Cortex-X2 core coming in at 2.9GHz (up from 2.59GHz on earlier silicon). The Cortex-X2 is joined by three high-performance cores clocked at up to 2.8GHz. Finally,... Read more...
Samsung is working on a version of its Exynos system-on-chip (SoC) that will incorporate AMD's second generation Radeon DNA (RDNA 2) graphics, which is certainly exciting from both technical and consumer standpoints. Rumor has it the upcoming chip will power Samsung's Galaxy S22 phones. As we wait to find out, an interesting Geekbench listing has popped up, perhaps giving us an early glimpse of the chip's performance. As always, it is important to take benchmark leaks in stride and not necessarily treat them as fact. These things can be manipulated, and on top of that, it is impossible know all the variables at play, like how early the represented silicon might be, what the testing conditions... Read more...
It has been a long wait to see the fruit of Samsung's licensing agreement with AMD, in which the former will inject the latter's graphics into system-on-chip designs for supercharged mobile devices. That day has still not arrived, but it is coming. There is reason to be excited, too—leaked benchmark results suggest that the infusion of RDNA 2 into Samsung's Exynos chips will deliver class-leading graphics performance among mobile phones. The initial announcement of the partnership between Samsung and AMD dates back to June 2019. At the time, Samsung hyped bringing to market "groundbreaking graphics products and solutions." And for AMD, it meant yet another avenue for its high performance... Read more...
AMD and Samsung made a big splash in 2019 when the pair announced that future Samsung SoCs would leverage Radeon IP. The possibilities were endless, with the prospects of bringing PC-caliber graphics to smartphones and other mobile devices. Earlier this week, AMD confirmed that Samsung's next-generation custom mobile SoCs would feature RDNA 2 IP complete with variable-rate shading and ray-tracing capabilities baked in. Understandably, with AMD dabbling in the mobile SoC arena with RDNA 2, many have wondered about NVIDIA's stance on this practice. For example, could we see NVIDIA partner with other SoC makers to incorporate GeForce RTX technology (well, outside of its own custom Tegra processors)?... Read more...
AMD and Samsung first announced a partnership involving future mobile SoCs back in 2019, and early this morning at Computex 2021, AMD confirmed that this arrangement would bear fruit later this year. We knew that this moment was coming, but the timeline for release was previously unclear. When the custom Exynos 2100 SoC was announced earlier this year, Samsung's Dr. Inyup Kang only stated that its "next flagship product" would feature AMD's "next-generation mobile GPU." By adopting RDNA 2, SoC will have one of the most powerful GPUs available for smartphones, tablets, and even Windows PCs if Samsung chooses to go that route. GPU performance hasn't always been a strong suit with Samsung's [previous]... Read more...
It's no secret that Samsung is working on a new SoC that will find its way into future smartphones. What makes the alleged Exynos 2200 so special is that Samsung has collaborated with AMD to integrate an RDNA-class GPU into the chip. This should make for a powerhouse SoC that could prove to be formidable competition for Apple's M1 found in Macs and now the iPad Pro. While the Exynos 2200 was previously expected to debut during Q2 2021, a new report from The Korea Economic Daily alleges that the chip will instead arrive in the second half of 2021. Not only will the Exynos 2200 be used in Galaxy smartphones and tablets as was previously expected, the report goes on to indicate that it will find... Read more...
