Samsung’s Galaxy S22 series will be announced in early February and while in North America it will almost certainly be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, other regions will get units powered by a flagship Exynos processor like this. occurred with previous ranges. In previous years, it may not have been very exciting, but 2022 will bring the first Exynos processor incorporating AMD’s GPU architecture.
The Exynos 2200 will feature an RDNA 2-based GPU, which is the same GPU technology used in Microsoft’s Xbox Series X, Sony’s PlayStation 5, and AMD‘s Radeon RX 6000 series of graphics cards. While on paper this looks impressive, it’s unrealistic to expect the same level of graphics from the Exynos 2200’s GPU as a gaming console, but the performance levels should be much closer. Samsung has already promised the inclusion of ray tracking technology, which should help speed up the viewing experience of the new Galaxy S22 series.
It took almost two years for the partnership between Samsung and AMD to bear fruit, and the Exynos 2200-powered Galaxy S22 will be the first proof of how the collaboration is going. With a launch date of January 11, we don’t have to wait long for full specs to be revealed.
