Samsung is likely to unveil the Exynos 2200 chipset with AMD RDNA 2 graphics next month. According to an informed source, this chip will not be used only on Galaxy series products, and we will probably have to wait for its presence on other companies’ devices as well.
According to reports A Chinese resource on the Weibo social network, Vivo will probably introduce a powerful smartphone with Exynos 2200 in cooperation with Samsung. Of course, in today’s report, Samsung’s chipset is named Orion, but the more interesting point is the cooperation between the two companies. Vivo has already used Samsung’s Exynos chipsets in some of its high-end handsets.
The Exynos 2100 chipset that Samsung introduced last year came close to the power of the Snapdragon 888, and its only Achilles heel was Mali graphics. But now Samsung has turned to AMD for graphics and will probably make up for this weakness. If the Exynos 2200 is powerful enough, other companies will probably want the chipset, and it will be harder for Qualcomm.
Samsung and Qualcomm’s next chipset will likely be made with Samsung’s 4-nanometer lithography. Therefore, there will be no significant difference between the release time of these two products. In addition, if the Galaxy S22 series fails to sell well, the Exynos 2200 could make up for the shortfall and become another source of revenue for the Korean giant.
Unfortunately, it is not yet clear how powerful the Exynos 2200 and AMD RDNA 2 graphics will be and how well they will perform compared to Qualcomm’s flagship chipset. But expectations and predictions indicate the high power of this product, and it seems that Samsung finally has a chance to launch the most powerful chipset in the Android world.
According to a rumor that was released a few months ago, Samsung will probably introduce three Exynos chips this year, one of which will be from the 800 series, the other 1200 and the last one will be the Exynos 2200 chipset.
