The new processor is rumored to be included in the future Galaxy S22, though many of those details are still up in the air. AMD gave an overview of the features and revealed that its RDNA 2 will include ray tracing and variable-rate shading, allowing it to deliver high-fidelity graphics and improved power efficiency.
The latest development comes from Korea IT News And it also states that Samsung is aiming to increase Exynos installs in Galaxy smartphones by 50% to 60% from the current 20%.
Galaxy S22 sales combined with other Galaxy smartphone sales numbers are estimated to double shipments of Samsung’s upcoming Exynos chipset (by region). Reportedly, the company is “significantly” increasing the proportion of Exynos between the IM division, which is in charge of the smartphone business, and the DS division, to which the systems LSI division belongs.
Amid the semiconductor shortage, Samsung plans to expand the Exynos processor install from midrange to low-end smartphones.
The AMD partnership could help Samsung improve its gaming and graphics performance in the next flagship Exynos chipset, and potentially it could even power some upcoming Samsung laptops. It can be introduced along with the Galaxy S22 series in early 2022. We should get a better idea of what the S22 will claim in terms of hardware in the coming months.
