Samsung and AMD have announced a multi-year extension of their partnership to bring high-performance Radeon graphics solutions to Samsung's Exynos SoCs. The agreement will allow Samsung to bring console-level graphics quality and optimized power consumption to more mobile devices, providing an immersive and long-lasting gaming experience.
Through their collaboration, Samsung and AMD have revolutionized mobile graphics, introducing ray tracing capability to mobile processors for the first time in the industry. This extension of their work will enable the advancement of the next generation of Samsung Exynos solutions, leveraging multiple generations of AMD's leadership high-performance Radeon graphics.
Seogjun Lee, executive vice president of Application Processor (AP) Development at Samsung Electronics, said, "Drawing on our technological know-how in designing ultra-low-power solutions, we will continue to drive ongoing innovation in the mobile graphics space." Meanwhile, David Wang, senior vice president of the Radeon Technologies Group at AMD, emphasized their strong technology partnership and commitment to providing the best experiences possible to mobile users.
The partnership began in 2019, with the licensing of AMD RDNA graphics architecture, and led to the co-development of Samsung Xclipse in 2022. Xclipse is a mobile GPU based on the AMD RDNA 2 architecture, which features hardware-accelerated ray tracing and variable rate shading for console-like gameplay on mobile devices.
The extension of their partnership shows a continued commitment to driving innovation in mobile graphics and providing users with the best possible experience.
