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

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.

Those who have no love for foldable devices might be looking forward to what Samsung has planned for its flagship next year. That is especially true for those curious about what AMD will bring to Samsung's family of Exynos chips. There are some expectations that the Exynos 2200 will bring about a massive improvement that might even begin to rival Apple's A14 Bionic. Unfortunately, those interested in seeing that for themselves might be a bit disappointed by rumors that most Galaxy S22 models will be using a Qualcomm Snapdragon instead.

AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT wants to upgrade 1080p gaming

AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT wants to upgrade 1080p gaming

A lot of modern gaming PC hardware these days tends to focus on high-resolution, high-fidelity graphics. Whether it's 2K, 4K, or even 8K, PC makers, monitor manufacturers, and graphics silicon developers put almost all the emphasis on raw power or artificial intelligence to push millions of pixels around. AMD's newest GPU, in contrast, goes the opposite direction and aims to instead utilize its latest Radeon technologies to optimize gaming at 1080p resolutions.

The AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT Liquid Cooled is as impressive as its name

Graphics cards are still very difficult to find thanks to a global parts shortage combined with big demand, but that isn't stopping AMD from rolling out a new version of its top-of-the-line Radeon RX 6900 XT GPU. This new version, called the Radeon RX 6900 XT Liquid Cooled, gives away its main new feature in the name, as the GPU is outfitted with a liquid cooler that should help it boost performance over its air-cooled counterpart.

AMD Radeon RX 6000M GPUs target gaming laptops with RDNA2 tech

After what may be considered a hibernation period for AMD, Intel's eternal rival has returned kicking and brandishing an impressive arsenal of new chips under its new Zen CPU architecture and equally new Radeon RDNA2 graphics technology. Unsurprisingly, those took aim at the desktop PC market first but now AMD is bringing the same technologies to a more mobile form factor. At this year's Computex, it unveiled not only the newest Radeon RX 6000M series of graphics chips for laptops but also a new certification program for gaming laptops to rival Intel's Evo.

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.
