Samsung Exynos 2100, 1080 5nm chipsets may get successors this year itself
It has been mentioned that AMD is helping the Galaxy S21 maker for mobile chipset GPUs.
It looks like Samsung is taking bigger strides when it comes to chipset performance and upgrades. The company has recently launched its Exynos 2100, which is already better on paper, as compared to the Snapdragon 888. However, its GPU, which is ARM Mali G78 is not enough to compete with Adreno 660 yet. So, Samsung is planning to change this with Exynos 2100 and Exynos 1080 successors.
It has been mentioned that AMD is helping the Galaxy S21 maker for mobile chipset GPUs. During the Exynos 2100 unveiling event, the president of the chaebol's System LSI Business did confirm that the next flagship ‘product’ will come with an AMD GPU. It is what it is not for sure if he was talking about the next flagship chipset or the device that will be coming to the masses.
We will see Samsung release Samsung × AMD GPUs in the second or third quarter of 2021, which will be used in the next Exynos 2xxx and next Exynos 1xxx processors, Samsung may change the release time of the new processors.— Ice universe (@UniverseIce) January 24, 2021
Although he did not reveal the launch date, tipster Ice Universe has tweeted that we may see Samsung chipsets with AMD GPUs in the second or third quarter of 2021. Also, these might be used in the next Exynos 2xxx and next Exynos 1xxx processors.
This also means that we may see the successors of the flagship chipset coming later this year instead of next year. It also raises a question if the chipsets will be used in the rumoured Galaxy Z Fold 3 or the Galaxy Note 2021 or even the rumoured Galaxy Note 20 FE.
Meanwhile, some reports suggest that Samsung could soon bring its Exynos chipsets to laptops too. Since the company already supplies chips to manufacturers like Motorola, so the likelihood of ARM-based chips in computers (like the Apple M1 processor) isn’t such a far-fetched idea.
