What is new with the Exynos 2200

Samsung’s new flagship SoC is expected to come with powerful graphics performance. The company has confirmed that the new chip’s GPU will be powered by AMD’s RDNA 2 graphics architecture. Just for reference, the same architecture is also used in the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X as well as AMD’s RX 6000 series.

Just being built on the same architecture won’t help the chipset run games with the same graphics as next-generation consoles but game developers will have greater bandwidth to take smartphone gaming to the next step. In the teaser, Samsung has also emphasized the gaming performance of the chip. It states, “#PlaytimeIsOver. The gaming marketplace is about to get serious. Stay tuned for the next #Exynos with the new GPU born from RDNA 2. January 11, 2022.”

It will be interesting to see if developers will be able to introduce technologies such as ray-tracing in the games being launched in 2022. However, games also need to be optimized with other chipsets that power Android smartphones such as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and the MediaTek Dimensity 9000.

While the new chipset will do duty in the Galaxy S22 series, we can be certain that the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE will not be powered by the same chipset. Samsung will opt for the older generation. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 has been rumoured to be featured in the S21 FE. The Galaxy S22 series is expected to be revealed in the month of February.
