On its Weibo account, Samsung has officially confirmed that its next Exynos processor will be compatible with ray tracing. This technology will make mobile games even more beautiful, since the reflection of light will now be dynamic. This will be made possible thanks to AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture, which is already used on the latest Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards or in the PS5 and Xbox Series X / S.

AMD had already mentioned the arrival of this technology on smartphones during a conference. On this occasion, the company had confirmed having worked with Samsung on the GPU part of the next Exynos 2200, which will power the Galaxy S22 of 2022. Alongside ray tracing, we should also notably find the rate shading variable (VRS), which makes it possible to manage in real time the quality of the shadows according to the zone of the image in order to save resources.

The Exynos 2200 will be Samsung’s most powerful chip

Thanks to the partnership with AMD on the GPU part and the new ARM v9 CPU cores that promise 30% more performance, the next Exynos 2200 chip should be the Samsung’s most advanced processor. Samsung’s chips have long been criticized for their more modest performance than their counterparts at Qualcomm.

However, the Galaxy S22’s Exynos 2200 should finally be able to compete with the upcoming Snapdragon 898, which will be presented in December. We recently saw a first benchmark of the Samsung chip, which already gave an overview of its configuration.

We should find out more about it as we get closer to the Galaxy S22 launch, slated for early next year.
