Computex Taipei just came up with an important update – Samsung is teaming up with AMD to implement RDNA 2 graphics technology for an Exynos mobile system-on-chip, which will most likely mean better GPU performance for the upcoming Samsung handsets.
Seems like the GPU will utilize AMD’s RDNA 2 design, which will empower innovations like ray tracing or variable rate shading on the next flagship mobile designs.
According to AMD CEO Lisa Su, “the next place you’ll find RDNA 2 will be the high-performance mobile phone market. AMD has partnered with industry leader Samsung for several years to accelerate graphics innovation in the mobile market, and we’re happy to announce that we’ll bring custom graphics IP to Samsung’s next flagship mobile SoC with ray tracing and variable rate shading capabilities. We’re really looking forward to Samsung providing more details later this year.”
While there is little information at hand right now, the company did refer to the chip as a “next-generation Exynos SoC,” and promised to provide more details later this year.
Of course, it remains to be seen if AMD’s solution will actually surpass Qualcomm’s Adreno GPUs with its latest RDNA 2 architecture, but the company’s move is certainly a bold one.
