Samsung and AMD extend licensing agreement for Radeon graphics in future Exynos chipsets

Michail, 06 April 2023

Samsung and AMD have agreed to extend their strategic partnership from 2019 which will see AMD Radeon graphics technology utilized in Samsung Exynos chipsets. The new multi-year partnership is said to bring several generations of high-performance and ultra-low-power AMD Radeon graphics solutions to Exynos chipsets for console-level graphics quality and optimized power consumption.

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. - Seogjun Lee, EVP of AP Development at Samsung Electronics

The previous agreement between the two companies was signed in 2019 and resulted in the Exynos 2200 with its custom Xclipse GPU based on the AMD RDNA2 architecture with hardware-based ray tracing and Variable Rate Shading (VRS). The Exynos 2200 SoC was featured in European units of the Galaxy S22 series and showed capable performance though it was still outshined by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.
