Samsung May End Partnership with AMD in 2026 And Create its Own GPU for Exynos

Samsung is planning to stop working with AMD and start making its own customized GPU cores for Exynos, its processors for phones and tablets. This information came from a leaker named Roland Quandt last Friday (04).

The leaker says Samsung will launch chips for smartphones with its own GPU in 2026. That’s also the year they’ll stop using AMD’s RDNA architecture. But until next year, they’ll still work together, launching the Exynos 2500, which will be used in the Galaxy S25.

This means the supposed “Exynos 2600” would have a new GPU design from Samsung. This could make Samsung’s competition with Qualcomm stronger. Qualcomm also has its own Adreno GPU, based on technology from the company AMD bought in 2006, ATI.

The Exynos 2200 and 2400 use the Xclipse GPU, which Samsung and AMD made together. The first one uses RDNA 2, and the second one uses RDNA 3. There’s no news yet about what architecture the Exynos 2500 will use. AMD is getting ready to release two versions: RDNA 3+ and RDNA 4.

Samsung also used AMD technologies in its mid-range phones, like the Exynos 1480 and 1380, which have RDNA GPUs.

People thought Samsung’s GPU would still use AMD’s technologies, but Samsung would design it on its own without help from AMD.

The Exynos 2500 will probably be announced in 2024. It’ll be Samsung’s first chip for phones using 3-nanometer GAA (Gate-All-Around) technology. People are expecting it to be more energy-efficient, which is an area where Samsung isn’t as good as Qualcomm and MediaTek yet.
