Samsung partnering with AMD to develop a next-gen Exynos mobile chip — and it comes with ray-tracing

AMD reveals Samsung‘s next flagship Exynos mobile chip will feature its RDNA 2 architecture, bringing ray tracing and variable rate shading features to smartphone devices.

Announced at Computex Taipei (via The Verge), Samsung and AMD have partnered up to develop the next Exynos mobile system on a chip (SoC), which is expected to give Samsung Galaxy smartphones (and possible future Galaxy laptops) a significant upgrade in graphics. 

AMD CEO Lisa Su states the semiconductor company will bring “custom graphics IP to Samsung’s next flagship mobile SoC with ray tracing and variable rate shading capabilities.” This suggests Samsung’s Galaxy S22 will be a mobile gaming powerhouse.

The announcement didn’t specify when the next-generation Exynos chip will be launched, but Su states Samsung will provide “more details later this year.”

AMD plans to bring its RDNA 2 to the high-performance mobile phone market, with Samsung devices being the first to feature the highly-regarded ray tracing and variable rate shading tech.

Currently, Samsung uses both its own Exynos and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chips in its flagship Galaxy S21 smartphones. However, with the new graphics power coming to the Exynos SoC, the Korean tech giant could get rid of Qualcomm altogether.
