Samsung postpones Exynos 2200 with AMD graphics


Samsung Exynos

After a rather long and painful wait at the end of last year, Samsung announced that it was ready to report on the work done and present a proprietary chip with AMD graphics. The release date was specified as January 11th. Today we would finally know if Samsung was able to create a worthy competitor to flagship processors from Qualcomm or Apple, or not.

But unexpectedly, a few days before the premiere, Samsung removed from social networks the mention of the upcoming release of Exynos 2000. It’s strange enough, but the company itself remains silent and has not yet made any statements about the prospects for the upcoming release. But it seems that the new chip is imperfect and needs improvement;  so Samsung, which has been developing it for a couple of years, has to postpone the Exynos 2200 release.

This was confirmed on his Twitter page by an insider Ice Universe. According to him, Samsung has decided to cancel today’s presentation on the launch of the Exynos 2200, postponing it indefinitely. And this is not the only processor that will not launch on time. According to the source, the Exynos 1200 presentation was scheduled for November, but the processor was eventually canceled. Recall that rumors circulated on the network that the Exynos 1200 will form the basis of the Galaxy A53 and Galaxy M33.

There seem to be very good reasons for Samsung to take the desperate move of postponing the announcement of new chips. Ice Universe suggested that some processes are taking place within the division responsible for the creation of chipsets; but they can hardly be called positive.

By the way, earlier Ice Universe in a rather negative way responded about the Exynos 2200; proposing to lower the degree of expectations and said that in terms of performance, the new product would not impress. He also stated that there are problems with heat dissipation; and the developers have not been able to achieve the predetermined frequencies for the RDNA2 graphics.

It can be predicted that Exynos 2200 still has no advantage. Previously, we thought AMD GPU would keep its GPU absolutely ahead. Now, it may still be inferior to Snapdragon, and there will be no gap in CPU. It is difficult for Exynos to get out of the dilemma. And I heard a more surprising news. The GPU of Snapdragon next generation processor (8 Gen2) : Adreno 740 will be greatly better; which means that Exynos 2300 still faces strong challenges even if it uses mRDNA3 GPU.
