Samsung Rumored to Release Exynos-Based Laptop with Radeon Graphics

Samsung is reportedly working on a laptop based on its own Exynos system-on-chip that features a built-in AMD RDNA-based GPU. The system will run Microsoft’s Windows 10 and compete against always-connected personal computers (ACPCs) based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon platforms for laptops.

Samsung licensed AMD’s Radeon RDNA GPU IP in 2019 and promised that the first products to use AMD’s graphics technology would be available within the next two years. Samsung’s latest Exynos 2100 SoC that powers international versions of the Galaxy S21 smartphones continues to use Arm’s Mali-G78 MP14 graphics, but when launching it early this year, Samsung said its ‘next flagship product’ would use an AMD-powered Exynos. The company did not elaborate on which product that would be, which ignited rumors about a new high-end smartphone with Radeon GPU. But if a publication from ZDNet Korea quoted by Engadget is correct, this is not the case.
