Samsung says that ray tracing is coming to mobile games with the Exynos 2200

04 October 2021
It's a photo-realistic but computationally expensive technique that is featured on PC graphics cards and current-gen consoles.

Given the size of a phone and from this photo, it doesn't feel like it's worth it to have ray tracing if it requires extra processing powers.

Anonymous, 04 Oct 2021Given it's AMD's tech in new Exynos chipsets, it ... moreYep.
While even inferior to DLSS 2, scaling will be much much more useful in a power-constrained device like a phone than RT
Real-time reflections on a tiny screen? Nay
Comparable quality scaling with better framerate/sustained gameplay for longer? Yay

What a.... bullshit!

Yes, maybe the next Exynos 2200 supports Raytracing.
But: Raytracing on a smartphone is POINTLESS !!!
It is nothing but stupid!

If you want to have Raytracing on a Gaming PC you need to buy an nVidia RTX 3070, 3080 or 3090.
By now you will not find an RTX 3080 for less than 1200 Euro. The cheapest RTX 3070 is around 900 Euro (UVP = 550 Euro). An RTX 3080 and 3090 has a power consumption of about 300 Watt and more. Regarding AMD, by now AMD isn't able to compete with nVidia when it comes to Raytracing.
An AMD RX 6800, which costs around 1000 Euro by now (UVP around 500) has a hard time to reach 60 FPS in Full-HD with Raytracing!
And don't forget the cooling systems that such a graficscard has, that is at least 10x bigger than a Smartphone. Even an PS5 and XBox does have big cooling concepts and systems.

And now they announce Raytracing for Smartphones?
Think again, thats marketing bullshit and will never work in an acceptable manner.
Power consumption far too high, cooling systems far too big, etc. pp.
So there might be a small benefit from it like a it better shadows.
But great looking Raytracing in FullHD and more than at least 30 FPS - that will never ever work!

They can include it.
Doesn't mean it would be used in games...

developer should bring PS3 or light pc games to smartphone, ray tracing on candy crush or angry birds? lol

[deleted post]That's perfect. All it needs now is an in-built refrigerator and a 50 inch television haha. Keep fantasising cause that's never gonna happen

Anal, 04 Oct 2021Try again. Glass is a conductor NOT an insulator. Think bef... moreWrong using double copper cooling definitely helps but no one is willing to pay Β£150 for this only Sony experia 1ii pro is using this premium and 6 antenna with dual 5G standby omg that’s totally rare using both 5G latency on standby that’s 2000mbps download no wonder it costs Β£2500

I think people expect something else, such as a 30-70% better battery, 3.5mm jack return, no overheating phones.

Nice. Exactly what i need!

Perfect for playing Candy Crush.

evilboy, 04 Oct 2021read article again the ray tracing its for pc not smartphone .I think you may need to read the article again.

It says "and will keep the ray tracing support of the desktop and laptop GPU"

Translation: "The Exynos 2200 will keep the ray tracing support, which desktop and laptop GPU's have.

Ray tracing adds an entire car it seems(image on the right). Marketing cr*p.
