It’s been a while since we knew Samsung was partnering with AMD to bring its technology to phones. And today we finally know when the first Samsung smartphones with AMD technologies will hit the market.
In fact, during its (virtual) keynote at the Computex exhibition, AMD announced that the next generation of the Exynos chip will benefit from its RDNA 2 architecture, custom graphics based on the AMD RDNA 2 architecture, the ray tracing and shading capabilities offers variable rate for flagship mobile devices, ”said a statement from AMD.
Currently, these two features are only available on consoles or computers. Ray tracing is a technique that allows the reflection of light in video games to be made more realistic. The variable rate shading should allow games to start at a higher resolution with a stable number of frames per second.
An announcement from Exynos (Samsung) before the end of the year
As reported by the Android Authority, AMD has also announced that Samsung will reveal more details about this 5G-compatible chip later this year. If more information is awaited at the moment, it is very likely that this new chip will be the successor to the Exynos 2100 (which is used by some versions of the Galaxy S21).
Normally, the successor to the Exynos 2100 should be presented by Samsung before the end of the year, then the first models with this chip should land in early 2022. It is still too early to discuss the capabilities of the next Samsung smartphones. Nevertheless, we can assume that thanks to AMD’s technologies, they should achieve significant gains in terms of graphics performance. And it is certain that Samsung will not fail to do so.
It should also be noted that Samsung announced back in January during an event for its subsidiary Exynos that its next generation of premium processors for smartphones would use an AMD GPU.
Also, with we still at least six months away from the release of the next Samsung flagships, we can expect rumors to circulate about the performance these models will have thanks to the partnership with AMD.
