Samsung and AMD’s first love child could be hot-headed

Based on the leaked measurement results, the display speed of the Exadeos crossed with Radeon will be roughly 30 percent higher than the Mali-G78 in the Galaxy S21 Ultra. In the optimal case, this may even be enough even against the next-generation ARM graphics unit, given that so far, the average progress per generation has typically been around 20 percent.

There is thus no need to complain about the performance. In return, however, you will have to pay with a relatively high dissipation. On the second run, the GPU produced 20 percent lower results, and on the third run, graphics performance decreased by a total of 30 percent. All this was due to the so-called thermal throttling, i.e. the down-regulation thermal protection built into the system, which protects the hardware from possible overheating damage by reducing the clock and voltage. For the time being, one can only guess whether the efficiency of the RDNA2-based GPU or Samsung’s own semiconductor manufacturing technology weighs more hard on the relatively high power consumption.

According to industry rumors, however, Samsung is pleased with AMD’s GPU development, so Radeon GPUs could be added to Exynos in the coming years, subject to further negotiations. Lisa Su, President and CEO of AMD, said at an event a few weeks ago that she was pleased with the partnership with Samsung, thanks to which AMD finally found its way into the high-traffic smartphone market.

At that event, Su confirmed that the GPU developed for Samsung will support hardware raytracing and VRS (Variable Rate Shading) like the latest consoles. Thanks to the latter, in some cases, resource-intensive shading can be calculated at a lower resolution, thus increasing the display speed. Although the official announcement is yet to come, based on the reactions of the two companies, the collaboration will also extend to RDNA3 GPUs coming next year. Until then, however, the first result of the cooperation will certainly be on the market, which, according to the current position, will take place in July after some postponement.
