Samsung Shows Exynos 2200 Chip With AMD GPU Running Ray Tracing

Samsung: Announced at Computex 2021, the Samsung The Exynos 2200 processor will feature AMD’s RDNA 2 based GPU. The new SoC chip offers a feature set seen in computers and includes real-time ray tracing support.

This Monday (4), the South Korean brand unveiled a comparative image of the new Exynos hybrid GPU with ray tracing. The ad, published on the Weibo social network, shows a battle tank with fire details reflecting on the body.

If you take a closer look at the images, you can see the effects of ray tracing at other points in the scene. For example, the setting looks less dark and the walls of the building have more detail.

Furthermore, no additional technical details such as frame rate per second (fps) were revealed. Applying ray tracing is challenging, even for high-performance computer graphics cards. Therefore, the advent of technology to mobile devices represents a major step forward.

When will the new Exynos with AMD GPU come out?

As the leaks, the Exynos 2200 will have great graphics power and a more modest CPU. Spotted in some tests, the model outperforms all smartphone processors available on the market.

The specifications found indicate that AMD’s GPU, called Voyager, has six RDNA2 processor units with support for Ray Tracing and/or 384 stream processors.

Previously, the processor was expected to be officially announced in July. However, Samsung may have postponed the model’s debut for the launch of the Galaxy S22 line.
