    Mid-range Exynos chips to get AMD GPUs, but don’t expect too much from them

    Two years ago, Samsung announced its partnership with AMD to develop new in-house GPUs for Exynos processors. The Exynos 2200 was the first chip to use an AMD RDNA2-based GPU, and people were expecting a lot from it. However, it turned out to be a below-par chip. Now, Samsung is planning to bring AMD GPUs to the rest of its Exynos lineup.

    Exynos 1430 and Exynos 1480 could have AMD RDNA-based GPUs

    According to tipster Revegnus (@Tech_Reve), Samsung will equip its future mid-range chips—Exynos 1430 and Exynos 1480—with an AMD mRDNA-based GPU. Both these processors are expected to be announced sometime early next year, and they could debut inside the Galaxy A55 and the Galaxy A15, respectively. The tipster claims that people should refrain from having “overly high expectations” from the GPUs inside these upcoming Exynos chipsets.

    Apparently, Samsung is focused more on improving the ISPs on its future mid-range Exynos chips rather than bringing powerful GPUs. So, the gaming performance of the Exynos 1430 and the Exynos 1480 may not be class-leading. Since Samsung's partnership with AMD was meant to be long-term, it was always expected that the entire Exynos lineup would one day use GPUs based on AMD's technologies.

    Samsung's next flagship chipset, the Exynos 2400, is rumored to be used in some Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24+ units. It reportedly features a 10-core CPU with one Cortex-X4 CPU core clocked at 3.16GHz, two Cortex-A720 CPU cores clocked at 2.9GHz, three Cortex-A720 CPU cores clocked at 2.6GHz, and four Cortex-A520 CPU cores clocked at 1.9GHz. The Xclipse 940 GPU inside the Exynos 2400 is expected to have six WGPs (Work Group Processors).

    The tipster goes on to claim that the Exynos 2400's single-core CPU performance is lower than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, while its multi-core performance is in the same ballpark. Its GPU performance is reportedly not as good as the one in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. The Exynos 2400 chip may consume slightly more power for a similar workload, but we should take all this information with a pinch of salt until the chip is officially available and tested.
