Samsung introduced its first mobile processor powered by Advanced Micro Devices graphics as the company tries to compete with iPhones.
Samsung Electronics Co. introduced its first mobile processor powered by Advanced Micro Devices Inc. graphics, as the company tries to better compete with the gaming prowess of arch-rival Apple Inc.’s iPhones. Built using Samsung’s most advanced 4nm manufacturing process, the new Exynos 2200 processor is the industry’s first mobile chip with hardware support for ray tracing, an advanced approach to high-fidelity graphics increasingly adopted in graphics cards. for PCs. The graphics chip built on AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture, called Xclipse, is described in Samsung’s announcement as bridging the gap between console and mobile performance.
“Samsung’s Xclipse GPU is the first result of several planned generations of AMD RDNA graphics in Exynos,” said David Wang, senior vice president at AMD.
Samsung typically uses its own Exynos processors in its own flagship Galaxy devices in some markets and has customers like Vivo who use silicon in their handsets. Apple’s proprietary A-series processors and Qualcomm Inc’s Snapdragon family. have traditionally dominated the mobile landscape, despite Samsung’s advantage of being able to manufacture its own chips.
Now in mass production, the eight-core Exynos 2200 system-on-chip is one of the first to use the latest Armv9 central processing cores and includes a built-in neural processing unit focused on artificial intelligence tasks. The performance of the NPU has doubled this generation, according to Samsung. 5G wireless connectivity is also built into the chip, which will sit at the heart of Android smartphones this year.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 series new leak surface
(ANI) Samsung has not set an announcement date for the Galaxy Tab S8 series rumors, but new leaked live images suggest the release date is fast approaching.
According to GSM Arena, the images of all three devices – the Galaxy Tab S8, S8 and S8 Ultra – don’t reveal much except for some dimensions, but the release date may be fairly close as the devices go through the certification process.
In another interesting development, the S8 series is likely to play well with the S-Pen that is compatible with the previous Galaxy S7 generation, as the same stylus with the same FCC ID has gone through the regulatory process of the Galaxy S8.
According to GSM Arena, the vanilla model will offer an 11-inch screen, the Plus variant will boast a 12-inch panel, while the Ultra option will go up to 14.6″.
However, all three iterations will run on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. And only the latter has a notched screen.
