Samsung is preparing for the arrival of its new Exynos 2200 processor on the market, creating the necessary enthusiasm to receive what is allegedly the system-on-chip that will finally make the South Korean company surpass all others. your competitors in the market.
One of the features that will highlight the Exynos 2200 will be its GPU, thanks to the collaboration with AMD, and which will also result in the fact that this is the first smartphone processor to have support for Ray Tracing.
Samsung will debut Ray Tracing on Galaxy S22 via Exynos 2200
But after all, what is Ray Tracing? This technology is already quite common in computer-dedicated graphics cards, but it is still an unexplored field in the mobile market. With this feature, the graphics processor can make a simulation very close to reality about the way light reflects off objects, making the entire image and scenarios much more realistic, with reflections and shadows far superior to those obtained with 3D models.
Despite being a feature that, on paper, has everything to benefit any device with access to video games, the truth is that this technology has its drawbacks, since there are still few systems that support it. However, Samsung’s Exynos 2200 will have the advantage of having a GPU that uses AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture, which is also common to Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S, Steam Deck APU and Tesla’s infotainment systems.
There is no doubt that with this partnership with AMD, Samsung aims to become the market leader. With a powerful graphics, Samsung can also become a reference at the level of mobile gaming , something that turns out to be another advantage to steal the “niche” of brands like Asus ROG, Xiaomi BlackShark or Nubia. According to current data, the Exynos 2200 GPU will represent a performance improvement by 30% over the Exynos 2100 GPU and should also outperform the new Mali-G710.
Despite these exciting data, it is still uncertain whether both Samsung and AMD will be able to surpass the good work of Apple and Qualcomm graphics for their processors, with the new graphics of the Apple A15 Bionic again crushing any proposal in the market, which includes the performance dominating of its predecessor, the A14 Bionic.
As for the arrival on the market, there are still no dates for the official revelation. It will be guaranteed, however, that the first smartphone to debut this processor will be the Samsung Galaxy S22 (as well as its variants), which should be presented in early 2022.
