For every year that goes by, there will be increasingly sharp graphics in our mobile phones, and now it is time for the next step in the development. AMD and Samsung have started a multi-year collaboration to offer Radeon graphics (RDNA) in mobile devices, reports The Verge.
The idea is that Samsung will replace the current graphics processor Mali with a more powerful variant from AMD. In this way, future versions of the Exynos chip will be able to offer graphics that can be matched to that found in today’s game consoles.
“The use of Radeon graphics in computers, game consoles and servers has increased significantly lately, and we are happy to work with Samsung to speed up the development of graphics circuits for mobile phones,” said AMD CEO Lisa Su in a press release.
No timetable for when we see the first mobile phones with Radeon graphics has not been announced, but a qualified guess is that it happens sometime next year.
