Samsung’s much-anticipated Exynos 2400 chip coming with the Galaxy S24 will likely be the company’s last processor with AMD graphics. Although the two companies have recently signed an agreement to continue cooperation, it seems that this agreement will not last long.
Rumors about Samsung’s Exynos 2500 chip have been circulating for a long time, which shows that this chip is the dream chip that Samsung has always been looking for. According to the claims, Samsung is gaining a foothold in the “brutal and competitive chip industry” with this chip.
Account OreXda In the X social network, he wrote: “Samsung and AMD’s cooperation in the graphics processor market is likely to end; Because Samsung is trying to make a dedicated graphics processor for its smartphones by 2025.
Of course, competition in the phone market is only part of the story. It seems that Samsung plans to increase its readiness to compete in the automotive industry and artificial intelligence, and this is not possible without dedicated graphics. Some believe that the poor performance of AMD’s Xclipse 920 GPU in the Exynos 2200 chip could also be involved in Samsung’s decision.
The Xclipse 920 GPU in the Exynos 2200 appeared weaker in ray tracing than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and other competitors, and even if the rumors of the Xclipse 940 in the Exynos 2400 are true, things probably won’t get any better; Because the specifications of the mentioned graphics processor are improved only on paper.
Samsung used to use the Mongoose core in its chips, but its disappointing performance and efficiency made it abandon this design and Samsung switched to ARM designs. We will have to wait and see if the dedicated GPU and completely independent chip can give Samsung a chance to compete with Qualcomm and Apple.
What do you think of Zomit users about this decision of Samsung? Do you think this will affect the price of the Samsung phone?
