Samsung Exynos 2200 Arrives with AMD RDNA 2 and Ray Tracing

For the first time, a chip implements hardware support for Ray Tracing in a cell phone chip.


The collaboration between Samsung and AMD on cell phones finally bears fruit this 2022 with the Exynos 2200.

The new high-end processor from the Korean company will arrive with an Xclipse GPU, with AMD ‘s RDNA 2 architecture .

The Exynos 2200 is made with Samsung’s 4-nanometer EUV lithography process, the same one used by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.

The big news comes with the use of AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture in the graphics of the Exynos 2200 , the first mobile chip with support for hardware-accelerated Ray Tracing .

Variable rate shading (VRS) also arrives, a technology that allows you to optimize the workload of the GPU by being able to optimize the use of the GPU in certain areas of the game, usually those that stand out the most in the experience.

At the head of Samsung

Like every year, Samsung ‘s Galaxy S series phones will have an Exynos or a Snapdragon , depending on the region.

The Exynos 2100 showed a big step forward from Samsung, although it was noted that there was still some way to go when it came to graphics and battery usage.

The collaboration with AMD , introducing Ray Tracing via hardware in cell phones, is a sign that in 2022 we have a much more competitive Exynos .

The face to face, we will see it in the benchmarks of the Galaxy S22, which are expected to be presented in the first half of February.
