Farewell Mali, Hello Xclipse GPU

AMD just scored a major win with Samsung, as they will be producing the GPU on Samsung’s new Exynos 2200 SoCs.  It has been quite some time since AMD was last in the mobile handset market, as back in 2009 they sold ATI Imageon to Qualcomm for $65 million, which Qualcomm turned into Adreno.  Adreno has since powered several generations of smartphones from most major vendors.

The Xclipse GPU is fabbed on a 4nm process and based on the same RDNA 2 architecture found in the current generation of Radeon GPUs for mobile and desktop.  The new chip is purported to have hardware-accelerated ray tracing, HDR10+ support, 4K video decoding at up to 240fps or 8K decoding at up to 60fps and refresh rates of up to 144Hz.  It is not mentioned if it will support variable refresh rates; theoretically it could if the display on the phone is capable of it.

As for the rest of the hardware, the Exynos 2200 will have one Arm Cortex-X2 core, three Cortex-A710 big cores and four Cortex-A510s.  As you would expect it contains a 5G modem with both sub-6GHz and millimetre wave.  According to The Register, it is also capable of teaming 5G and LTE to provide data transfers up to 10Gbps.

There is no news on the amount of VRAM you might expect to see on these new phones.

The Exynos 2200 processor, fabricated using a 4nm process, has Armv9 CPU cores and the oddly named Xclipse GPU, which is an adaptation of AMD's RDNA 2 mainstream GPU architecture.
