The Samsung Exynos 2200, unveiled in early 2022, was Samsung's first smartphone processor to feature the new Samsung Xclipse graphics processing unit (GPU) powered by AMD's RDNA 2 architecture with hardware-accelerated ray tracing support. The processor was a result of a partnership between Samsung and AMD, and now the two companies have announced plans to continue working on delivering high-quality graphics to more smartphones.

Samsung and AMD have signed a multi-year agreement extension to develop multiple generations of high-performance and ultra-low-power AMD Radeon graphics for a broader line of Exynos SoCs. Samsung says the partnership will result in console-level graphics quality and optimized power consumption in more mobile devices.

"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. Drawing on our technological know-how in designing ultra-low-power solutions, we will continue to drive ongoing innovation in the mobile graphics space."

Samsung to use AMD GPUs on Mid-range Exynos phones; no Ray tracing​

Since Exynos GPUs from AMD didn’t perform up to the mark on flagship phones, Samsung plans to use them on its mid-range phones instead. Since mid-range GPUs are mostly pretty weak, Samsung’s flagship GPUs can drastically improve the gaming performance of their mid-segment phones with Exynos processors.


We didn’t expect Samsung’s partnership with AMD GPUs to benefit mid-range phones. This means that we won’t get Ray Tracing support since it makes no sense on phones with relatively weaker CPUs. The Exynos 1480 and 1430 will have potentially much better AI & ML for photography. Performance isn’t the main focus. Improving Machine Learning with this will make Samsung the benchmark for mid-range smartphone photography. The GPU will be a tweaked RDNA2 for their mid-range lineup, and it’s exciting to see where this partnership goes.
