Samsung teases support for ray tracing with Exynos chips

Samsung teased an image showing ray tracing support in its upcoming Exynos processor to preview what could be a major boost to mobile graphics.

When AMD announced its collaboration with Samsung at Computex 2021 to bring RDNA 2 to the mobile chip of the future, people were eagerly awaiting significant developments, including the ability to port some of AMD's desktop graphics technologies to mobile chips.

According to an official article on the Chinese Weibo platform, the South Korean company has confirmed that future Exynos chips will support ray tracing in the GPU.

In the post, the company did a side-by-side comparison to show off ray tracing effects, including more realistic lighting modeling, improved dynamic range, and more.

According to the leak, the Exynos 2200 chip contains an ARM Cortex-X2 core with a clock rate of 2.9 GHz, three cores with a clock rate of 2.8 GHz, four cores with a clock rate of 2.2 GHz, and an AMD graphics card with a clock rate of 1250 MHz.

The AMD GPU in Samsung's flagship next-generation Exynos chip can deliver massive performance compared to the Exynos 2100's Mali-G78MP14 processor.

The company said ray tracing is an advanced graphics display technology powered by desktop GPUs. By calculating the position and the area of ​​light reflection, the pixels in the position area are displayed one by one, creating a realistic effect. This technology will land on smartphones via Exynos and take the mobile gaming experience to the next level.

The company did not reveal the specific chip that will receive ray tracing or the launch schedule. But many people think that this chip could be the next Exynos 2200. It is expected to appear in some versions of the Galaxy S22.

Galaxy S phones in North America typically use Qualcomm's Snapdragon chipsets. International models use Exynos processors.

The image appears to demonstrate the power of ray tracing, which makes the scene more realistic. It does this by calculating the path of light and following it in a given environment upon impact.

To add to the credibility of the rumors, it appears that leaked references to the Exynos 2200 have surfaced. The performance of the GPU is in line with that of the Apple A14 chip. Given that Samsung still has a few months to tweak and improve its performance, this looks very promising.

Google has developed a chip specifically designed for the Pixel 6 series called Google Tensor. Samsung has partnered with AMD to develop graphics processors for its mobile phones. The battle for supremacy is escalating and smartphone manufacturers are trying to keep up.
