The graphics accelerator based on the RDNA 2 architecture can achieve a huge performance advantage. Meanwhile, Samsung is attracting Apple and AMD processor engineers.

For years, Samsung has used self-designed Mongoose processor cores based on the ARM Cortex architecture in its mobile chipsets, relying on the ARM Mali series on the GPU side without any particular modification. The trend may soon reverse: the Exynos 2100 is already left with the elegant Cortex-X1, A78 and A55 processor cores, while as it continues, the GPU can get a discrete solution for commuters thanks to the AMD RDNA 2 architecture.
According to Korean reports, the Exynos 2200 chip, which is expected in both laptops and phones, can offer a 30% increase in graphics performance over its predecessor and a 10% improvement over the next generation Mali GPU from ARM, the ergo seems to be worth the effort. with AMD. At the same time, Samsung may soon shed its own development kit: according to the same source, the South Korean giant can once again start designing custom CPU cores and attract experts and engineers from Apple and AMD, respectively. However, these processor cores are expected to be far ahead.
