Samsung: first Exynos with AMD GPU arrives earlier than expected

Samsung announced during the presentation event of its latest SoC Exynos 2100 a partnership with AMD to manufacture new processors with an improved graphics unit. At the time, the South Korean brand did not come up with a specific date for its arrival on the market, but the possibility of arriving in the second quarter of this year is now advanced.

This partnership seems to aim to face the Snapdragon 888, especially with regard to graphics processing. This may well be the reason why Samsung decided to launch this new SoC sooner than expected.

Partnership between Samsung and AMD to defeat the Snapdragon 888

We will see Samsung release Samsung × AMD GPUs in the second or third quarter of 2021, which will be used in the next Exynos 2xxx and next Exynos 1xxx processors, Samsung may change the release time of the new processors.

The company will be in a hurry to put on the table a more valid alternative to the more powerful offer from rival Qualcomm, with the advantage of being able to use the AMD GPU also in some less premium processors.

A speed test on the Galaxy S21 Ultra equipped with different chipsets was carried out some time ago, showing that the Exynos 2100 beats the Snapdragon 888 in tests that only measure CPU power.

However, in terms of graphics, the South Korean is notoriously behind Qualcomm’s latest proposal. It is clearly something that Samsung wants to change, and for that it now counts on the help of an AMD increasingly involved in the various niches of this market.

The collaboration with AMD should not only focus on the Exynos 2100, with rumors pointing to the inclusion of Lisa Su’s branded GPU also in the successor to the Exynos 1080.

Exynos with AMD GPU may dominate the market

If it happens, it will be a smart move by Samsung that will provide its less expensive equipment with arguments for the battles of tasks related to graphics processing.

Previously it was believed that the SoC in collaboration with AMD would be launched only in 2023, under the name Exynos 9925.

Judging by this news, Samsung would have preferred not to wait and move on to a more immediate strategy in a processor market that is more competitive than ever.
