Samsung introduced Exynos 2200 mobile processor with ray tracing and AMD graphics

Samsung has announced Exynos 2200, the world's first mobile chip with AMD's RDNA 2 graphics architecture. The companies announced the collaboration in 2019, but the release of the joint development was constantly delayed for one reason or another.

The Exynos 2200 is manufactured using the company's proprietary 4-nanometer EUV process. The graphics subsystem, called Xclipse, provides hardware ray tracing and Variable Rate Shading (VRS) technology, which were previously only available on desktop consoles and PCs.

The CPU consists of eight ARM cores: the powerful flagship Cortex-X2, three high-performance Cortex-A710 and four efficient Cortex-A510 cores. In addition, there is an upgraded Neural Processing Unit (NPU), which provides twice the performance of its predecessor, and an Image Processing Processor (ISP) to support camera sensors with up to 200 MP resolution.

Exynos 2200 is expected to be installed in the flagship Galaxy S series smartphones, which now use the Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC.
