According to a SamMobile report, the new rumor has seemingly revived hope for an upcoming launch of the custom chip with an AMD GPU. As per popular tipster Ice Universe, the South Korean tech giant is apparently planning to showcase the custom GPU developed with AMD in June 2021. Furthermore, the company will be revealing the technical details and specifications regarding the new chip around this time as well.
It was previously reported that Samsung might be unveiling its new Exynos chipsets with the new AMD GPUs sometime in the second or third quarter of this year. So the new rumor is in line with what we know so far, and would likely be a highlighting part of its upcoming flagship product line. Although, which series the new chips will arrive in is currently unknown. It could be for the Galaxy Note 21 series or the Galaxy Z Fold 3, while rumors have also pointed towards a 2022 launch with the Galaxy S22 lineup.
Notably, a graphics benchmark of a supposed Exynos chipset with the new AMD GPU had seemingly beaten the Apple A14 Bionic chipset. This may give us an idea as to what we could expect from the new custom chips. However, it is still too early to know for sure. So stay tuned for more, as we will be providing updates when additional information is available.
