Samsung and AMD recently extended their licensing agreement for use of Radeon graphics in Exynos chipsets. While it wasn’t spelled out explicitly, this preparation for the next chip from Samsung LSI, which is tentatively named Exynos 2500.
The focus with the new design will be on optimization. That’s pretty vague, but AMD already has high performance hardware – the problem lies in getting it to scale down to smartphone power levels. So the focus will likely be on improving efficiency rather than increasing performance (that said, in a thermally constrained smartphone they are almost one and the same).
Unofficial reports claim that the Exynos 2500 is set to be used in the Galaxy S25 generation a couple of years from now, next year’s models will still be using a Snapdragon for Galaxy chip. In previous generations Samsung was forced to put out a new flagship Exynos chipset each year for the new S-series, but now it can take its time to get things right.
AMD has time to work on things too – the Xclipse 920 of the Exynos 2200 was based on RDNA 2, since then RDNA 3 has made its debut. The official target for the new architecture is 54% higher performance per watt, which is exactly what a mobile GPU needs.
