Samsung Introduced the First Mobile Chip with AMD Ray Tracing GPU

Exynos 2200 is the new mobile processor based on the AMD RDNA2 architecture which comes with hardware-accelerated ray tracing.

Samsung introduced Exynos 2200 – a new mobile chipset for smartphones which are built on the 4nm EUV process technology. It is the first mobile processor which is based on the AMD RDNA2 architecture which brings such benefits as ray tracing and variable rate shading on mobile.

Samsung's latest flagship chipset GPU is branded as "Xclipse" and, according to the SVP of engineering for the Radeon Technologies Group David Wang, it’s “the first result of multiple planned generations of AMD RDNA graphics in Exynos SoCs.” Wang also promises "great gaming experiences" which the new technology collaboration will provide.

On the CPU side, Exynos 2200 also integrates Armv9 cores: Arm Cortex®-X2 flagship-core, three performance-balanced Cortex-A710 cores, and four efficient Cortex-A510 cores. The mobile chipsets also provide an upgraded more powerful NPU offering the performance which has doubled compared to the Exynos 2100. The latest mobile processor's ISP architecture has also been redesigned to support camera sensors of up to 200 megapixels.

Exynos 2200 was supposed to be announced on January 11, however, Samsung delayed the announcement. According to the company, the Exynos 2200 is "currently in mass production". However, no official date when the chip will debut in smartphones wasn't revealed yet.
