AMD RDNA 2 to bring ray-tracing across mobile devices… starting with Samsung!

AMD has partnered with Samsung to bring its RDNA 2 architecture for mobile, this means, Samsung phones would soon be available for ray-tracing!

AMD’s CEO Dr. Lisa Su, discussed about delivering AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture to Samsung Exynos during the Computex event while also discussing about their new series of GPUs Radeon RX6000M. With that in mind, this will be the first time in years that AMD would again be entering the mobile market. This time, they might have a chance.

AMD has partnered with industry leader Samsung for several years to accelerate graphics innovation in the mobile market, and we are happy to announce that we will bring custom graphics IP (Intellectual Property) to Samsung’s next flagship mobile SoC (System on Chip) with ray tracing and variable rate shading capabilities.” said Dr. Lisa Su.

The GPU architecture would soon be available to Samsung Exynos chipsets starting with the rumoured Exynos 2200, which is a chipset that would be available for tablets, smartphones and laptops. Who knows? Maybe this time, Samsung’s chipsets would become competitive and have better performance, as the Exynos chipsets are often ridiculed for their lackluster GPU performance and throttling. There is even a petition on to discard the Exynos 990 chipset completely for the Snapdragon 865+ on the Samsung Galaxy S20

Samsung would reveal more about the Exynos 2200 this year, and with AMD being in the line, the Exynos 2200 seems promising.
