AMD and Samsung unite to improve graphics of smartphone games

Samsung has signed a partnership with AMD to design powerful mobile GPUs based on its new Radeon RDNA architecture. These chips promise low consumption with exceptional performance.

AMD, the eternal competitor of Intel on the PC market will land on mobiles at Samsung. At Computex 2019 in Taipei, Taiwan, AMD unveiled its new line of graphics cards. The founder presented its unique DNA architecture with7-nm etching. It promises to double the performance of previous generations.

For its part,  Samsung announced a partnership with AMD concerning the development of graphics solutions for its smartphones. The Korean brand will lease AMD’s patents to exploit its new Radeon chip in its graphics SoCs. Until now, Samsung used chipsets Mali for its SoCs Exynos chips. 

Thus, the powerful Galaxy S10 encloses a chip Mali G76 MP12 with 12 cores. Models equipped with Qualcomm chips are, on their side, equipped with an Adreno GPU.

A smartphone for the gamer at Samsung?

AMD promises, for its part, deficient consumption with the great performances that we know about data centers and the world of PCs for gamers. For now, Samsung does not say what range of mobiles it wants to equip with this architecture Radeon.

We can assume that this is the top of the range and maybe its next range of Galaxy S. Unless Samsung is embarking on the niche of smartphones dedicated to gamers, niche on which have rooted some brands like Asus with his ROG Phone, Razer, or Xiaomi and his Black Shark 2 at a reasonable price. To find out, we will have to wait until next year.
