While he was on stage at Computex 2021 talking about the new Radeon RX 6000M series of GPUs, AMD’s CEO Dr. Lisa Su about bringing AMD’s RDNA 2 graphics architecture to Samsung’s Exynos chipset later this year.
With its first appearance on a mobile SoC, AMD’s RDNA 2 custom graphics will enable variable-speed beam tracking and shadow on Exynos chipsets.
Did you see that? “The next place you find # RDNA2 will be the high-performance mobile phone market. We are pleased to announce that we will be bringing custom graphics IP to Samsung’s next flagship mobile SOC with ray tracing and variable speed shadow options. ” @LisaSu of @AMD pic.twitter.com/c0z1iLl85r

It is expected that the first product with AMD’s RDNA 2 graphics will be the rumored Exynos 2200, which is intended to power notebooks and tablets later in the year. It is possible that we will even see the upcoming SoC on phones as well.
Samsung’s Exynos 2200 with AMD graphics is destined to compete with Apple’s M1 chipset, which recently came to the iPad Pro and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2.
