New rumor reveals Samsung’s custom AMD GPU is coming soon


Last updated: February 23rd, 2021 at 09:30 UTC+02:00

It’s been known for some time now that Samsung and AMD have been working on a custom GPU. It will be paired with Samsung’s Exynos processors for mobile devices. Nothing has been officially unveiled as yet but chances are that our wait may be ending soon.

A new rumor has come up and it suggests that Samsung’s custom AMD GPU may be unveiled in the near future. It backs up another recent report which made a similar claim regarding the GPU’s launch.

Samsung x AMD custom GPU could be unveiled in June

Popular tipster @UniverseIce is claiming that Samsung is tentatively planning to showcase the custom GPU developed with AMD in June. The company will only be revealing the technical details and specifications at this stage. The actual chipsets that utilize the custom GPU will come later.

An earlier report from the same source claimed that new Exynos chipsets with the integrated AMD GPUs will be out in the second or third quarter of this year. Samsung has already said that its “next flagship product” will feature this GPU.

What’s not known at this point is whether Samsung plans on introducing this new chipset with the Galaxy Note 21 or the Galaxy Z Fold 3. Some believe that Samsung will only launch it with the Galaxy S22 which is not due to arrive before next year.

An early graphics benchmark of a purported next-gen Exynos chipset with the AMD GPU appears to crush Apple’s A14 Bionic. If Samsung does reveal the technical details of its custom GPU by June, we will at least be able to understand how it’s going to stack up against its competitors.
