Samsung could launch flagship and mid-range Exynos chips with AMD GPUs earlier than expected
The Snapdragon 888 features the Adreno 660 GPU, which the chipmaker claims is 35 percent faster and 20 percent more power-efficient than its predecessor. The Exynos 2100 has the Arm Mali G78 GPU, and while it obviously is an improvement over Exynos 990's Mali G77, it is still not good enough to take on the Adreno 660 GPU. This could change with Exynos 2100's and Exynos 1080's successors.
We will see Samsung release Samsung × AMD GPUs in the second or third quarter of 2021, which will be used in the next Exynos 2xxx and next Exynos 1xxx processors, Samsung may change the release time of the new processors.— Ice universe (@UniverseIce) January 24, 2021
Although the tweet is thin on specific details, it seems to hint that we will see the next Exynos 2xxx and Exynos 1xxx chips earlier than expected and this makes us wonder if Samsung's next flagship smartphone, which is presumably the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and not the Galaxy Note 21, will have a new premium SoC under the hood.
Samsung's next flagship silicon is reportedly internally known as the Exynos 9925 and besides this, nothing else is known about it.
As for the AMD GPUs, expectations are quite high, as leaked benchmark results suggest they will outperform Adreno GPUs.
