AMD’s RDNA 3 graphics architecture is headed to mobility devices (smartphones) with Samsung’s Exynos 2400 SoC. Its Xclipse 940 GPU is based on the RDNA 3 graphics architecture, offering upgraded ray-tracing capabilities, advanced upscaling technologies, and dedicated AI accelerators. Samsung has made some bold claims about its Exynos 2400 SoC.
The official blog post claims a 1.7x increment in CPU performance over the Exynos 2200 with a not-so-realistic 14.7x increase in AI performance. It’s unclear whether the device will feature separate fixed-function hardware for acceleration or tap into the extra vector units found on the GPU.
Samsung demoed a new AI tool for its upcoming smartphones, capable of text-to-image generation using the AI capabilities of the Exynos 2400. AMD’s RDNA 3 graphics architecture is hardly power efficient, often sipping much more than their GeForce counterparts despite using the same process node.
The RDNA 3.5 graphics architecture supposedly takes care of these and many more issues. However, Samsung’s official website makes no mention of this. It’s possible that some of the features of RDNA 3.5 were ported to the Xclipse 940, but don’t expect any miracles here. RDNA 3 is a modest improvement over its predecessor.
