techno.rentetan.com – Powered by an AMD-based GPU, the Exynos 2200 is Samsung’s most powerful mobile processor. A new mobile CPU from Samsung features AMD graphics for the first time, the Exynos 2200. Additionally, the processor incorporates AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture, which allows for hardware-accelerated ray-tracing and variable-rate shading to improve the realism of lighting effects in virtual worlds.

The SoC will likely be found in Samsung’s forthcoming Galaxy S22, which is expected to be unveiled at the Unpacked event. However, this hasn’t been verified (which is rumored for Feb. 8). The Exynos CPUs from Samsung are normally reserved for overseas markets, whereas devices sold in the United States employ Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chips. US Galaxy S22 models are expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 based on recent speculations.

The 4-nanometer processing node used by Samsung in the Exynos 2200 is AMD’s “Xclipse” GPU. AMD has confirmed that Samsung’s “next flagship mobile SoC” would be built on the RDNA 2 platform, which is used by AMD’s newest mobile and desktop GPUs. We’ve known about this since 2019.

When Samsung’s new Galaxy S series phones are expected to come next month, the phrase “flagship” indicates that the CPU will be included in the devices. However, performance metrics are something neither firm is ready to release just yet, although Samsung is expected to do so during the Galaxy launch. According to the business, the chip would allow for the “ultimate mobile gaming experience.”

It is now possible to have power-efficient, powerful graphics solutions on PCs, laptop, console and car platforms using AMD RDNA 2 graphics architecture. Radeon Technologies Group Senior Vice President David Wang stated Samsung’s Xclipse GPU is the first of several AMD RDNA graphics-based Exynos SoC generations.

From a CPU perspective, the Exynos 2200 will include an ARMv9 Tri-Cluster arrangement with Arm Cortex-X2 “flagship core,” three huge cores (Cortex A710 and A510), and four little cores (Cortex A510).

It contains a neural processing unit (NPU) that’s twice as fast as its predecessor, and an image signal processor that supports up to 200-megapixels, 4K HDR (or 8K video recording), and the capacity to connect to seven separate image sensors simultaneously and operate four of them.

We’re eager to see what modern graphics can do and if mobile games can take use of those performance boosts and features. Samsung claims that the Xclipse GPU is “positioned between the console and the mobile graphic processor,” which suggests that the firm intends to blur the distinctions between home and mobile gaming.
