Samsung was expected to launch its custom AMD Radeon GPU for its upcoming Exynos chips this month (June), but according to Ice Universe, the company has decided to push that launch forward by one month. The popular leaker revealed in a tweet that Samsung will launch its custom AMD GPU in July this year with details about its performance along with other details about the chips and also claimed that it may even appear in the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su also mentioned at Computex, that the GPU will be based on RDNA2 architecture just like the one used for the GPUs inside the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S and Series X consoles and the next-gen Exynos chipset with the new GPU will be bringing features such as ray tracing and variable rate shading capabilities.
The specifications of the Exynos + RDNA2 SoC have not been confirmed, but we are anticipating to see how powerful can RDNA2 architecture be at such a low power level. So far, the architecture has shown its strength with the recent Navi 23 GPU announcement, which boosts up to 2.9 GHz at 90W (Mobile Variant) delivering as much as 10 TFLOPs of power. And if posts on Korean forum Clien are to be believed (thanks Neowin), at peak performance, the mobile RDNA2 GPU was able to narrowly beat out Arm’s next-generation Mali GPU.
Update: VideoCardz reports that Samsung is so pleased with the adoption of AMD architecture and its results that it is already negotiating with AMD for a contract for the successor of RDNA2 SoC.
So, this is all about it. Let us know your queries related to this in the comment section and stay tuned for further updates.
