It is known that Samsung is working on a new Exynos processor that will be a hybrid chip in collaboration with AMD. Specifically, the silicon will have an mRDNA GPU, based on the RDNA 2 architecture from AMD. It will be called the Exynos 2200 and today some information has leaked regarding its specifications.
Known Leakster “Ice Universe” has published details about the Exynos 2200 SoC. It seems the mRDNA GPU will feature six of AMD’s RDNA 2 Compute Units. This will provide the chipset with 384 stream processors. Samsung will construct the SoC on its soon to launch 4LPP FinFET process.
Ice Universe has been on a role this week because before the latest leak, he also revealed the codename for the Samsung chip. Actually, there are two codenamed for both the Samsung and AMD technology.
The Exynos 2200 itself is being developed under the codename “Pamir”, while the AMD GPU technology is known as “Voyager” internally.
Competition with Qualcomm
Other details that have emerged about the chipset suggest is that it is testing across cores of Cortex X1 and Cortex X2 to test for power.
The big question is how will the 2200 fare against the latest Qualcomm technology? That is the Snapdragon 895, which should be announced soon. Well, the Exynos 2100 was a good match against the Snapdragon 888, but Qualcomm’s chip bested Samsung’s in terms of GPU performance.
Samsung clearly took that to heart, hence the collaboration with AMD on the Exynos 2200. It remains to be seen if this means the Exynos will better the Snapdragon 895 in terms of graphics.
Tip of the day: With many reachable wireless access points popping up and disappearing again, the available networks list can become quite annoying. If needed you can use the allowed and blocked filter list of Windows 10 to block certain WiFi networks or all unknown WiFi networks.
