Samsung had a troublesome experience with the Exynos 2200, and that made it opt for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 on more Samsung Galaxy S22 series smartphones. This year, the Koreans decided to ditch the Exynos 2300 to stick with a partnership with Qualcomm. As result, we have the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy powering the Samsung Galaxy S23 series. Samsung always tried to push its Exynos lineup, but honestly, there are not many fans of the in-house CPU. Despite this, the company won’t give up and is planning a comeback to the high-end CPU market. A recent report indicated that Samsung was working on a new core design, but that does not seem to be the case.
Samsung will stick with ARM for future Exynos or Snapdragon for Galaxy chips
The report stated that Samsung was working on its own high-end CPU core design for 2027. However, the company representatives came to deny this fact. According to GSMArena, Samsung will stick with ARM in its future chipsets. The company states that there is no internal team set to develop a new CPU core. Instead, the company has multiple internal teams for CPU development and optimization. It will keep recruiting new global talents to act in these fields.
As a result, Samsung will keep working with ARM to use in its future Exynos chipsets. Take in mind that the company’s statement does not mean the end of Exynos. The report was indicating a whole new CPU core design instead of using the current ARMv9 cores. This is not the case, the future Exynos chipset, or whatever it is called, is probably coming. However, Samsung will stick with its partnership with ARM.
Gizchina News of the week
Right now, there are multiple reports about distinct CPU core designs. However, we don’t expect things to change anytime soon. ARM is pretty much established in the mobile segment. Perhaps not all manufacturers are happy with the British company. After all, it disallowed changes in the design of its cores. Despite this, developing a CPU core to withstand in a market pretty much established with ARM designs won’t be an easy task. Samsung probably doesn’t want to go through the process of launching an all-new core design.
ARM has been at the center of controversies due to new licensing terms set to being by 2024. These licensing terms can change how the companies pair ARM CPU cores with other customs ISP or GPU designs. That is making quite a buzz in the tech segment and is causing a certain struggle between Qualcomm and ARM. We are curious to see how the companies will act in the next few months.
