The Exynos 2200’s AMD GPU has some serious overclocking potential

Several benchmarks showcasing the Exynos 2200’s AMD Radeon GPU have shown up online over the past few weeks. The overwhelming consensus is that it blows just about every smartphone GPU out of the water, even when it isn’t operating at its peak. The last we heard, it was clocked at a whopping 1.25GHz. A new report from South Korean tech forum Clien tells us that it can operate at 1.58GHz.

It is unlikely that the Exynos 2200 will run the GPU at such high speeds, though. While the post doesn’t mention anything about its thermals, we can safely assume that the GPU is running hot. A power budget of 10W apparently lets it operate at a whopping 1.8GHz, but that will require some serious cooling that may not be possible on a smartphone.

AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 series of graphics cards have shown us that the RDNA2 architecture leaves a lot of headroom for overclocking. Given that the Exynos 2200’s GPU is RDNA2-based, it isn’t surprising that Samsung can push it to never-before-seen limits. That being said, AMD chips have historically been toasty, so it’s probably in Samsung’s best interests to focus on thermals more than raw performance.

Previous reports have told us that the Exynos 2200’s AMD GPU will not be restricted to mobile devices. We can expect to see it across a wide variety of devices, including laptops and tabletsSamsung can adjust its power budget and clock speeds depending on the device’s form factor and cooling mechanism.
