Meet M1 Pro and M1 Max: Apple Silicon’s macOS heavyweights

Apple's M1 chipset may have given Apple Silicon its big debut, but it's the M1 Pro and M1 Max which power users have been waiting for. Debuting not one but two systems-on-chip (SoC) today, along with two all-new MacBook Pro models to take advantage of them, as before the big pitch is just how much power and efficiency you can achieve when you tightly tailor hardware to software.

Exynos 2200 leaked specs might have one important catch

Exynos 2200 leaked specs might have one important catch

Apple just launched the iPhone 13 with its new A15 Bionic processor, and, naturally, it's already being hailed as the fastest in the mobile market, especially in graphics performance. That might not matter much to Android manufacturers who can't use the chip anyway, so Samsung, Xiaomi, and others are fighting in a different arena. At least for Samsung, that might not be an issue if this new information about the upcoming Exynos 2200 with AMD graphics is right on the mark.

iPhone 13 A15 Bionic GPU surpasses Exynos 2200 even when throttled

iPhone 13 A15 Bionic GPU surpasses Exynos 2200 even when throttled

There is some interest and perhaps even excitement in what the Exynos 2200 will bring to the mobile market with its AMD-powered mRDNA graphics tech. There are, unsurprisingly, comparisons between Samsung's upcoming System-on-Chip and Apple's current A14 Bionic. While the figures look promising, it doesn't exactly paint an accurate picture considering what the iPhone 13 will actually run on. Based on some benchmarks, the Apple A15's graphics could run circles around the Exynos 2200, at least until it gets throttled.

Exynos 2200 graphics benchmarks are promising but premature

Exynos 2200 graphics benchmarks are promising but premature

Samsung's Exynos processor has had a topsy-turvy history in the past few years. It almost seemed like Samsung was on the road to catching up with Qualcomm, only for it to take a sharp nosedive with the Exynos 990 in the Galaxy S20 last year. The company is hedging its bets on its partnership with AMD to produce a processor that takes advantage of Radeon graphics technology. The Exynos 2200 might just be around the corner, and a recent benchmark seemingly proves its mettle, but some caveats have to be considered before giving it a blue ribbon.

Snapdragon 895 GPU teased to get a major upgrade

While mobile processors are still playing the numbers game when it comes to clock speeds, there is also an undercurrent that is putting some emphasis on the system-on-chip's graphical capabilities. Part of that may be driven by the still-growing mobile gaming market, and part of it is due to the increasing sophistication of mobile user interfaces. There is some excitement and curiosity around Samsung's use of AMD Radeon graphics technology for its upcoming Exynos 2200 chip, but Qualcomm naturally won't take matters sitting down and might be priming the Snapdragon 895 to face that head-on.

Galaxy S22 with AMD-powered Exynos 2200 might be hard to find

Those who have no love for foldable devices might be looking forward to what Samsung has planned for its flagship next year.

The acquisition has already been uncertain as far as the UK is concerned, and insiders are now saying that the country is inclined to reject the bid over national security concerns.
