AMD Samsung Exynos chip announcement Computex 2021


  • Samsung has announced an Exynos launch on November 19.
  • We’re guessing the company will launch its first AMD-powered Exynos processor.

Samsung and graphics colossus AMD announced a partnership to develop a smartphone processor with AMD graphics back in 2019, teasing some details earlier this year. Thankfully, it looks like the wait could be over soon.

“With gaming graphics continuing to evolve, let’s show you what entertainment will look like in the future,” read an excerpt from a teaser posted on the Samsung Exynos Instagram account. The teaser further claims that “everything changes on November 19, 2021.”

In other words, it certainly sounds like the Exynos 2200 (or whatever this AMD-powered processor will be called) will be announced on the day. After all, Samsung’s account mentions “gaming graphics,” and AMD is one of the leaders in this space.

So what should we expect from this first chipset, then? Well, AMD CEO Lisa Su already teased a few features earlier this year, namely ray tracing and variable rate shading. We’re also expecting Samsung to adopt the latest Armv9 CPU cores, such as the Cortex-X2, Cortex-A710, and Cortex-A510.
