Samsung Exynos 2200 with AMD GPU will Power Notebook and Phones
AMD does not make mobile SoCs itself, but it won Samsung’s heart in 2019, and the latter will integrate AMD GPU technology in Exynos processors, which is a first, and the product model is expected to be Exynos 2200. For more than two years, Samsung’s cooperation with AMD is about to bear fruit, and it covers more than just cell phones.
According to the Korean media The Korea Economic Daily, this particular Exynos 2200 will use a 5nm manufacturing process and will have very good computing performance, energy efficiency, and can be used in both smartphones and laptops.
While, best-known for smartphone’s SoC and other solutions like modem, the Qualcomm Snapdragon platform has also been trying to enter the notebook, and successively released several Snapdragon 8cx series SoC’s for notebook products, but has not been spread, after all, the performance of Snapdragon, the ecology of the ARM architecture, in the notebook is a problem. Now is said to be developing a third-generation 8cx chipset. As for Apple, M1 is of course a special case, thanks to Apple’s closed ecology, which can be completely controlled by themselves, cell phones, tablets, notebooks, all-in-one machines, etc. can be directly played through.
Following the competitor’s way, it seems that Samsung, after getting AMD GPU support, intends to let Exynos go the way of Apple M1, through the phone, notebooks, at least in terms of graphics performance, should be no problem. According to previous news, Exynos 2200 will be released in the second half of the year, compared to Exynos 2100 CPU performance increased by 25%, GPU performance directly up 2.5 times, can beat Apple A14.
