According to what we read on the net in these hours, it seems that Samsung will release three new processors for mobile devices and laptops in 2021.
According to reports, it appears that Samsung will launch three new Exynos chipsets in the current year. Recall that the South Korean giant is one of those few smartphone manufacturers in the world that manages to make the chipsets for its devices by itself. Now, according to the latest rumors leaked on the net, it is assumed that it wants to focus on the development of new high-end SoCs in order to compete with the two great rivals, Qualcomm and MediaTek.
Samsung: conquering the world of chipsets
In the course of 2021, the company is expected to launch three new Exynos processors from the mid-range 800 series, one from the high-end 1200 range, and one for super flagships (2200 line-up). These solutions are said to feature AMD’s rDNA architecture, a first for the mobile world. However, it seems that one of these CPUs is intended for the company’s laptops. Furthermore, the chipsets will have a similar but different architecture at the same time, depending on the intended end-use.
The South Korean giant has been working with AMD for years to develop a custom GPU and it seems that the company wants to show the world the brand new graphics processor jointly developed in June this year. According to other rumors, the aforementioned chipsets with this GPU should be launched at a later time and the devices powered by this could see the light only in the course of 2022.
The Exynos 2200 version is under development and will be adopted by laptops running Windows 10 and could become official in the third or fourth quarter of this year. So far, Samsung has relied on Qualcomm chipsets for laptops running Windows on ARM.
In related news, however, we report that the first 3-chip Samsung and TSMC will be ready for mass production only in the second half of 2022. In fact, at the moment, companies are still investing most of the resources for 5nm modules.
