Possible cause for Samsung Exynos 2200 chipset launch delay

To recollect, Samsung had to delay the launch of Exynos 2100 last year due to GPU issues, and the successor seems to be following the same fate.

We intend to sharpen our competitiveness by loading GPUs for games into mobile devices.”

Although Samsung hasn’t made any official statement yet, the Exynos 2200 is confirmed to be the first smartphone chip to use AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture, which means it will be the first to have hardware support for ray tracing. RDNA 2 which is cited to be the ‘backbone of the new Exynos GPU’ is used in premium gaming consoles.
