Samsung finally unveils the AMD RDNA 2-based Exynos 2200

Samsung left us with uncertainty last week when the South Korean tech giant didn’t make an appearance at its own planned press conference. Now in a newsroom blog post, Samsung has officially unveiled its new high-end mobile Exynos 2200 processor with AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture.

Samsung calls the new hybrid GPU the Xclipse, which gets the X from the Exynos processor, and the idea for eclipse comes from the way it sits between the mobile GPU and the console. Thanks to AMD’s RDNA 2 technology, Samsung touts that Xclipse can handle hardware-accelerated ray tracing and variable rate shading, such as on high-end consoles and PCs, but on mobile devices.
