It may not be long until Samsung releases its first mobile chips with Radeon graphics. During the company’s Q2 2019 earnings call, a representative confirmed that these would launch in about two years’ time.
Samsung originally announced that it had agreed to license graphics IP from AMD back in June. It’s a pretty big win for both companies: Samsung gets a state-of-the-art mobile graphics solution, while AMD gets paid handsomely and expands the Radeon name beyond desktop/laptop GPUs and game consoles.
To answer your second question about our AMD partnership. As you know, AMD has been a leader, especially in the GPU area since the early days of the PC market and is one of the leaders in terms of technology. We think that with this partnership, we will be able to leverage the GPU competitiveness of AMD to enhance the performance of not only our mobile SOCs, but also in other applications.
But considering the usual time it takes to vet out IT technology, we expect that the GPU technology will start being adopted in products that will be launched two years down the road roughly.
