Samsung has teased its upcoming mobile processor, the Exynos 2200, through a video on Twitter. The tweet was created from the official Twitter handle Samsung Exynos and reveals the start date of the processor. Samsung Exynos chipset will be unveiled on January 11, 2022. In the teaser, Samsung also gives hints about the gaming performance of its upcoming Exynos 2200 chipset, which could be improved.

In its tweet, Samsung mentions that the Exynos 2200’s GPU will be inspired by AMD’s RDNA 2 technology, which powers leading game consoles like the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. As can be read below, Samsung says that their Exynos 2200 chip will contain a new GPU “born from RDNA 2”. It could mean that the Samsung Exynos 2200 is delivering console quality graphics through a GPU based on the RDNA 2 architecture. While it seems like a far-fetched speculation, consoles have a completely different form factor and high processing power.

Will the Samsung Exynos 2200 chip deliver console-level graphics?

Whether or not the Samsung Exynos 2200 chipset offers console-quality graphics, the processor is sure to be better than Samsung’s latest generation of flagship chips, including the Exynos 2100 chipset. Samsung has been manufacturing its flagship Android smartphones with Exynos chipsets for quite some time. However, the performance of the Exynos-powered models is not as good as that of the models with Snapdragon 888 processors. According to a report by The Verge, the Exynos 2200’s GPU will be based on AMD’s RDNA 2 technology.

AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture was launched last year and powers high-quality graphics processors such as those found in popular game consoles such as the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 and AMD’s RX6000 series for desktops. That being said, the Exynos 2200 will most likely be included in Samsung’s upcoming smartphones like the Galaxy S22 range. It would be interesting to see if the Exynos 2200 is able to beat its competing chips from companies like Qualcomm and Apple, which spawn the popular Snapdragon and A-series of mobile processors. Stay tuned for more updates on Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, Galaxy S22 series, and other Samsung-related news.
