The Samsung Exynos with AMD GPU is getting console RDNA 2 tech

Samsung and AMD are teaming up for a new Exynos mobile chipset, baking in RDNA 2 graphics that might upend the longstanding assumption that Snapdragon Galaxy phones are automatically more powerful. Samsung offers different versions of its Galaxy S and Galaxy Note flagships for different locations, in some places relying on Qualcomm's Snapdragon chipsets while other regions get Samsung's own Exynos silicon.

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.

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.

Samsung details Exynos 2100 chipset ahead of Galaxy S21 reveal

Samsung is getting its big January announcements rolling a little early, it seems. Ahead of its January 14th Unpacked event - where the company is almost certain to reveal the Galaxy S21 lineup - today Samsung announced the Exynos 2100 mobile processor. The 5nm processor will likely be powering the Galaxy S21 line in many regions around the world, though here in the US, we're likely to see Galaxy S21 phones featuring Qualcomm's Snapdragon processors.

Samsung Exynos teaser dates the Galaxy S21’s big chip gamble

Samsung will reveal its latest Exynos chipset on January 12, 2021, the company has confirmed today, teasing what's likely to become the heart of at least some of the company's new Galaxy S21 series. Though Samsung hasn't yet confirmed the unveil of the Galaxy S21 family of flagship phones - which have already been the subject of numerous leaks - that's expected to take place in mid-January.

Galaxy S21 Snapdragon model might still leave Exynos in its dust

Galaxy S21 Snapdragon model might still leave Exynos in its dust

Just when you thought Samsung's Exynos chips have finally caught a break, new data allegedly puts its back in its place. As far as the Galaxy S21 is concerned, that is. There is still little concrete evidence as to which processors Samsung's early 2021 flagship will be running on but, if it keeps the status quo, there might again be some disgruntled consumers who will have to settle for a model that underperforms a different variant, simply because of where they live.

Samsung Exynos 1080 promises premium features for mid-range phones

Samsung Exynos 1080 promises premium features for mid-range phones

Qualcomm may have the lion's share of the mobile AP market but it's hardly the only one. Huawei's HiSilicon is probably out for now because of US bans but MediaTek is making up for lost time by flooding the market with countless chips. Samsung isn't taking this sitting down either, even if rumors about its semiconductor business are less than encouraging. In fact, it has just announced the new Exynos 1080 5G which, at least on paper, could give mid-range phones high-end features without going all out on the costs.

Samsung Exynos 1080 gets an unveil date – What we know

Samsung plans to show off its next homegrown smartphone chipset on November 12, promising new Exynos details for a fresh high-end processor.

Galaxy Note 20 Ultra Exynos, Snapdragon models still have performance gaps

Galaxy Note 20 Ultra Exynos, Snapdragon models still have performance gaps

Samsung may have one of the most powerful Android phones in the market today but it also has some of the most expensive. There are definitely other options around with almost the same raw power, or even better, but some might argue that you are getting what you pay for. That might not actually be the case for Samsung's flagships, which may have different processors inside and even a different cooling system. And while the prices might be the same, JerryRigEverything's test shows the performance definitely isn't.

Galaxy S20 Fan Edition leak could irk Galaxy Note 20 owners

Galaxy S20 Fan Edition leak could irk Galaxy Note 20 owners

It's not unusual for Samsung to launch a "lite" version of its flagship models, although the name has varied from time to time. Long rumored to be in the works, the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition or FE might be close to finally launching and when it does, it might prove to be controversial to some of Samsung's customers. While the phone is definitely "Lite" in some aspects, there are also some specs that put it above the more expensive base Galaxy Note 20 model.

Galaxy Note 20 Exynos 990 tipped to be an improved version

Galaxy Note 20 Exynos 990 tipped to be an improved version

Samsung has always put the best of the best components in its flagship Galaxy phones but one critical hardware is quickly becoming a liability rather than an asset. Its own branded Exynos silicon, in spite and despite all the marketing, has had trouble catching up with its Qualcomm equivalents in recent iterations. That disparity made headlines when the Galaxy S20 launched earlier this year and Samsung seems fated to make the same mistake with the Galaxy Note 20 with one minor difference. It will use a supposedly improved version of the Exynos 990 instead.

Galaxy Note 20 processor choice in Korea might cause another scandal

Galaxy Note 20 processor choice in Korea might cause another scandal

For years, Samsung has been using a two-processor strategy for its high-end flagships, launching with a Qualcomm Snapdragon in the US and China while other markets get Samsung's own Exynos chip. It changed its tune earlier this year and even went with the Snapdragon 865 for Galaxy S20 phones sold in its own hometown. That caused quite a ruckus even within Samsung's own ranks and it seems that history will repeat itself next month when the Galaxy Note 20 launches with the Snapdragon 865+ in Korea, too.
