With the use of an Exynos processor for PCs, Samsung can cut down the material cost and pass it on to the consumers. Intel will not be happy to hear about these developments. But the PC market could surely benefit from some competition. Qualcomm also has been using its Snapdragon series for connected PCs. And with Exynos jumping in, it’ll be good to have options in the market. And whenever the Exynos CPU comes out, we’re possibly looking at AMD Radeon GPU to be paired inside the system.
