Begining of June, AMD announced a collaboration agreement with Samsung Electronics where the company had acquired the rights to make use of Intellectual Property (IP) of AMD Radeon's latest graphic architecture, we talk about highly scalable graphic architecture RDNA, which was released with the launch of the AMD Radeon Navi, that is, the Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700.
Now, two months later, new details about this collaboration have been known, and after informing investors about the financial results of the second quarter, Samsung briefly mentioned their plans to launch mobile graphics solutions using the intellectual property of AMD. While the Korean tech giant designs its custom "Mongoose" CPU cores for its Exynos SoCs, the company still relies on ARM Mali GPUs to calculate computer graphics. This would change in the year 2021 if you believe in the statements of the representatives of the company in the last call of earnings of Samsung.
The partnership between Samsung and AMD will also help the latter by providing a stable place in the mobile ecosystem, an ecosystem in which the American giant Intel could not capitalize.
“To answer your second question about our association with AMD. As you know, AMD has been a leader, especially in the GPU area since the early days of the PC market and is one of the leaders in terms of technology. We believe that with this partnership, we will be able to take advantage of AMD GPU's competitiveness to improve the performance not only of our mobile SOCs, but also in other applications.
But considering the usual time it takes to examine AI technology, we expect GPU technology to start being adopted in products that will be released approximately two years later"
