Samsung and AMD Extend Partnership
Today, Samsung and AMD have announced an extension of their strategic partnership that will allow for the continued integration of AMD’s high-performance, low-power Radeon graphics solutions into Samsung’s Exynos chips. This partnership aims to provide a more immersive and realistic gaming experience for mobile devices by bringing host-level image quality and power optimization to more devices.
The announcement follows a successful collaboration between the two companies, which saw the development of the Samsung Xclipse mobile GPU based on AMD’s RDNA2 architecture. The Xclipse GPU brought advanced features such as ray tracing acceleration and variable rate shading to the mobile platform, which was a significant step forward for mobile gaming.
The last Exynos 2200 chip is based on Samsung’s 4nm EUV process and features the Xclipse 920 GPU. This chip was included in some of the Galaxy S22 series models, but reports suggest it may have encountered heat problems. It remains unclear whether this was a result of Samsung’s manufacturing process or the integration of AMD’s GPU.
Regardless, this partnership between Samsung and AMD represents a significant step forward for mobile gaming and graphics performance. AMD’s expertise in high-performance graphics solutions combined with Samsung’s advanced manufacturing process has the potential to revolutionize the mobile gaming experience. As mobile gaming continues to grow in popularity, the demand for more powerful and efficient graphics solutions will only continue to increase.
With the extension of this partnership, we can expect to see more generations of AMD’s high-performance, low-power Radeon graphics solutions integrated into Samsung’s Exynos chips in the coming years. This will likely result in a more immersive and realistic gaming experience for mobile users, as well as improved performance in other graphics-intensive applications.
Overall, the continued partnership between Samsung and AMD represents a promising future for mobile graphics and gaming, and we can expect to see more exciting developments in this area in the years to come.
