AMD graphics are coming to Samsung phones – but not for a while


The two giants may have announced a partnership earlier in the year, but it will still be a while to see AMD graphics on Samsung phones.

According to NotebookCheck, Samsung announced in an earnings call that the first-ever Samsung-AMD chips are expected to hit the market in 2021 at the earliest. The two companies officially announced their partnership in June this year, so it’s obvious they’re taking a slow and steady approach.

Samsung’s smartphones and tablets are expected to experience a significant improvement in graphics performance following the introduction of AMD know-how, and are likely to be more popular with gamers demanding higher levels of performance. But if you want on-the-go gaming to run smoothly – and you can’t wait until 2021 – then you already have a few good options to choose from.

The Asus ROG Phone 2 is due to launch in the UK in September, and it looks to be a force to be reckoned with. Boasting the Snapdragon 855 Plus chip with a whopping 12GB of RAM, it will surely handle even the most demanding mobile games. The display is the very first 120Hz AMOLED to hit the market, boasting an incredible 240Hz touch sampling rate. We can’t wait to get to grips with this new contender for the title of best gaming phone.

The Xiaomi Black Shark 2 Pro could be a good value gaming phone as it also runs on the same Snapdragon 855 Plus chip. Released later this month, the device also houses a large 4000mAh battery and up to 12GB of RAM. The screen refresh rate should hit 60Hz, but that’s one of the few compromises you’ll find in this mid-range phone for the dedicated gamer.

If you can’t wait for one of these phones to come out, then the Razer Phone 2 is a dedicated gaming phone already on the market that has powerful specs, but not the very latest technology. With a Snapdragon 845 chip and 120Hz display, the impressive spec held up very well when playing games, but we found flaws with camera performance and the “love it or hate it” design. “.

In such a competitive market, we’re eager to see if an AMD-Samsung chip can edge out its rivals as an even better gaming phone.
