Samsung has officially announced its latest premium mobile processor, the Exynos 2200.

The Exynos 2200 is significant because it is the first mobile system-on-a-chip from Samsung to incorporate a GPU powered by AMD’s RDNA 2 graphics architecture. According to a press release shared by Samsung, this GPU, dubbed “Xclipse,” will enable hardware accelerated ray tracing (RT) and variable rate shading (VRS) in mobile titles.

“To offer the most immersive graphics and user experiences even on mobile, Samsung has collaborated with AMD to realize the industry‚Äôs first ever hardware-accelerated ray tracing on mobile GPU,” the company confirmed in its press release.

“Variable rate shading is a technique that optimizes GPU workload by allowing developers to apply lower shading rate in areas where overall quality will not be affected,” Samsung explained. “This gives GPU more room to work on areas that matter most to the gamers and improve frame-rate for smoother gameplay.”

Destined for future flagship Galaxy phones, Samsung’s Exynos 2200 also features an octa-core CPU comprising the latest Armv9 CPU cores, an upgraded neural processing unit (NPU) with double the performance versus its predecessor, a 3GPP Release 16 5G modem supporting both sub-6 GHz and mmWave (millimeter Wave) spectrum bands, and an image signal processor that supports image sensors for ultra-high-resolution photos of up to 200 megapixels and 8K video recording.

The Exynos 2200 is already in mass production.
