Samsung’s upcoming Exynos flagship chip will reportedly feature AMD GPUs
Samsung is bringing in the flagship processor, Exynos 2100, to power the guts of the company’s Galaxy S21 series due to launch tomorrow (January 14). Before we can really understand how this works in contrast to Snapdragon-based S21s in the real world scenario, we already heard some compelling news for next-gen Exynos chipsets, which could include AMD GPUs.
Most of us will think it is too early for such a claim, but Samsung has hinted at it at the greatest stage of all, CES 2021. Samsung LSI President Inyup Kang at the launch event stated that the next ship The company’s flagship would come with next-gen GPUs from AMD.
Samsung fans would relate to this, as this is not the first time we’ve heard such a claim. The Koreans and AMD announced their partnership a couple of years ago to develop a mobile GPU, which could well compare to the Arm Mali graphics that are already in use.
Reportedly, this flagship that the president of Samsung LSI is referring to, is actually Exynos’ flagship chipset and not the company’s next flagship smartphone. This suggests that the new Exynos chip with AMD GPUs will not come out at any time before 2022, but this is a hypothetical assumption.
How close the Exynos has come to the pinnacle of Qualcomm is something we’ll only know after the Galaxy S21 series goes live. For now, we can assume that the AMD graphics on Samsung’s own processor will make a huge difference and catapult the Exynos image on par with Qualcomm, if not further.
