The Exynos 2200 with AMD graphics could power a Vivo smartphone0
The upcoming Exynos 2200 processor that aims to rival both the Apple A and M-series chips is set to power a Vivo device. It is unclear whether this device will be a phone, foldable or a tablet, and whether it will launch this year.
The fact that Vivo plans such a device isn’t surprising. The company is one of the few smartphone manufacturers, other than Samsung, to use Samsung Exynos processors in its products. Recently, the company announced a new phone called the Vivo Y70t, which is powered by an Exynos 880 processor. Other companies that use Samsung silicon on some of their devices are Motorola and Meizu.
The Exynos 2200 will use an AMD GPU, which was confirmed by Samsung back in January. This should increase its graphics performance by 30% compared to the current Exynos 2100. Variable rate shading will be present in the new processor too, a feature that increases rendering performance and quality by varying the shading rate for different regions of the frame.
Samsung and AMD partnered back in 2019 to work on new GPU architecture for mobile devices. Samsung wanted to upgrade from its current Arm Mali GPU, which lacks performance in comparison to competitor Qualcomm’s GPUs.
