Samsung Exynos 2200 AMD RDNA 2

Following its tradition, Samsung will release a new flagship processor just ahead of the launch of its next-generation Galaxy S flagship lineup. Meanwhile, the company has recently confirmed (via Weibo) that the upcoming Exynos 2200 SoC will support hardware-accelerated ray tracing for the first time in the market.

To be mentioned, the upcoming flagship chip from the Korean tech giant will use AMD GPU, which makes it more powerful than its predecessors. Notably, the Exynos 2200 will be the first platform in this segment with an AMD graphics core based on the RDNA 2 architecture.

Usually, they talk about its mobile version (mRDNA 2), but so far there is no information on the difference between these options. At the same time, earlier one would think that the ray tracing processing blocks would be removed since they are hardly needed in a smartphone.

Possibly this hints that the mobile interpretation of RDNA 2 does not differ much from the full-fledged one. In addition, as in the segment of console and PC games, developers should add ray tracing support to their projects. Whether they will do it en masse, given that only Samsung flagships will support tracing, is an open question.

The issue of performance is also open since we know about the high resource intensity of ray tracing technology, and that the implementation of its hardware acceleration in the RDNA 2 GPU, in particular, is inferior to that in the Nvidia Ampere GPU.
