We already know almost everything about Samsung’s new Galaxy S22 smartphones … Except for one of the most important and actually most interesting details. The SoC!
Will the new Samsung smartphone range, or at least the “Ultra” version, contain the Exynos 2200 SoC? Which in turn has a new AMD GPU based on the RNDA2 architecture?
Will the Galaxy S22 get an AMD upgrade or not? How is it going to be?
Therefore, according to plans that have already arrived on the Internet, Samsung is relying on the Exynos 2200 SoC, in 20 of the models that are expected to hit the market worldwide next year. (This includes tablets.)
A SoC that was supposed to “fix” one of the biggest bugs in the self-developed processors of the South Korean giant! So far, Exynos SoCs have always used a Mali GPU, while Qualcomm SoCs have used significantly faster Adreno GPUs. It’s a small component that makes a big difference in several areas, such as image processing.
That’s why there’s so much excitement surrounding the Exynos 2200, which ends up partnering with giant AMD. Samsung is in a position to get its hands on some simply marvelous “know-how” in the world of graphics! We are finally talking about AMD, responsible for the GPU of PS4, Xbox One, PS5 and also the Xbox Series S and Series X and of course the range of Radeon RX graphics cards.
In short, the integration of the RDNA 2 graphics architecture into a mobile SoC can open the doors to a new world of performance and of course to innovative functions such as ray tracing!
However, according to publications, Samsung will continue to rely heavily on processors from Qualcomm partners.
Ultimately, based on what recently hit the internet, and as we mentioned earlier, Samsung will launch a total of 64 devices in 2022. 31 of these will be based on Qualcomm SoCs, while 20 will be based on Exynos SoCs. and finally 14 MediaTek processors are obtained.
With these 20 devices, of course, nothing guarantees that they are all based on the latest Exynos 2200. So it is still a little unclear what bet Samsung will make on this long-awaited SoC.
Also, it seems quite noticeable that the South Korean giant still doesn’t have a lot of confidence in its production performance to bet heavily and ugly on its new and refreshed Exynos processors. In short, it seems we’ll have to wait a little longer to see a Samsung go all out on its own technology.
