Bringing Radeon graphics technology to Samsung Exynos SoCs

AMD has Samsung have both announced a signing of a multi-year agreement extension that will bring ultra-low-power AMD Radeon graphics to Samsung Exynos SoCs.

According to the announcement, this will allow Samsung to "bring console-level graphics quality and optimized power consumption to more mobile devices, offering an incredibly immersive and long-lasting gaming experience."

“Together with AMD, Samsung has been revolutionizing mobile graphics, including our recent collaboration that brought ray tracing capability to mobile processors for the first time in the industry,” said Seogjun Lee, executive vice president of Application Processor (AP) Development at Samsung Electronics. “Drawing on our technological know-how in designing ultra-low-power solutions, we will continue to drive ongoing innovation in the mobile graphics space.”

“We are excited Samsung selected multiple generations of our leadership high-performance Radeon graphics to advance the next generation of Samsung Exynos solutions,” said David Wang, senior vice president of the Radeon Technologies Group at AMD. “The extension of our work with Samsung is a testament to our strong technology partnership and commitment to bring the best experiences possible to mobile users.”

AMD and Samsung signed the original licensing deal for AMD RDNA graphics architecture back in 2019, and the result was Samsung Xclipse, a mobile GPU based on AMD's RDNA 2 architecture in 2022. This was the first mobile GPU with hardware-accelerated ray tracing and variable rate shading features.

Hopefully, the extension will soon lead to a new mobile GPU based on AMD's latest RDNA 3 architecture.
