Samsung Exynos with AMD Radeon GPU could come in a laptop first

Samsung Exynos with AMD Radeon GPU could come in a laptop first

Although Qualcomm and, to some extent, Rockchip, have long been on some laptops running Windows and Chrome OS, respectively, the arrival of the Apple Silicon M1 showed how the market for ARM-based desktops and laptops is still wide open to competition. There are, however, only a few big names that could probably be a good fit for that kind of device and it seems that Samsung's biggest Exynos gamble will be heading to laptops first instead of smartphones.

Diablo 2: Resurrected PC requirements shouldn’t shock you (yet)

PC requirements for the game Diablo 2: Resurrected are not particularly monstrous. If you run Diablo 2 on your computer right now, chances are you'll be able to run Diablo 2: Resurrected with little change or upgrade. This is, of course, for the most basic and low-resolution version of the game, but still - it's none too wild!

Samsung Exynos with AMD GPU claimed to beat Apple A12 Bionic

Samsung Exynos with AMD GPU claimed to beat Apple A12 Bionic

Samsung's Exynos has been the subject of much controversy and drama in the past months, especially as its performance gap with Qualcomm's equivalent Snapdragon chips became more prominent. The company's semiconductor business has been trying to turn that ship around quickly, especially with a favorable outlook for the new Exynos 2100. That said, the real highlight might still be coming later this year, especially if the combined powers of Samsung and AMD are indeed able to run circles around Apple's 2019 A12 Bionic chip.

Samsung Exynos with AMD GPU might actually arrive this year

Smartphone hardware has become crazy powerful in the past years, sometimes comparable with lower-end or older desktops and laptops but with better energy-efficiency. Of course, there's always room for more improvement, especially when it comes to trying to maximize processing power without sacrificing energy, heat, and size. Lately, it seems that the ball is being played in the graphics court and Samsung's biggest gamble in that game might be coming sooner than initially expected after all.

Newegg Shuffle could be the fix to RTX 30-series, PS5 restock woes

It's not exactly a secret that PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles, along with new PC gaming hardware from NVIDIA and AMD, are all difficult to come by at the moment. Every time this hardware is restocked anywhere, it's seemingly sold out in seconds, with resellers jacking up prices to insane degrees on sites like eBay. If you've tried and failed to get your hands on one of these consoles or CPUs, Newegg might have a fairer way of selling these products.

Next Samsung Exynos flagship to have AMD GPU

Next Samsung Exynos flagship to have AMD GPU

Back in mid-2019, Samsung and AMD announced a partnership that, to this day, has born no visible or tangible fruit. Given one of AMD's specializations, it was pretty much speculated that Samsung would eventually utilize AMD's expertise on the GPU front to give Samsung's Exynos chips a graphics boost, probably even in two year's time. Those two years are almost up and as if on cue, Samsung itself has actually confirmed that, perhaps by the end of the year or next year, your next premium Galaxy phone could have graphics muscles to rival some mobile PCs.

Cyberpunk 2077 on PCs also have performance issues especially with AMD

Just when the PC Master Race thought it got the better bargain with Cyberpunk 2077, reports and guides are popping up over the Internet to reveal just how bad the game's launch has been across all platforms. Sure, the game is still playable on PCs, unlike their console counterparts, but the game apparently isn't taking advantage of the hardware that's available, making it almost feel like the game is running on consoles instead. Fortunately, PC gamers don't have to wait for an official fix from CD Projekt RED but it does require a bit of familiarity with software modding, especially if you have an AMD Ryzen processor.
