Bye AMD? Samsung reportedly plans to make use of in-house GPU beginning with Exynos 2600 SoC

The Exynos 2500 chipset must be unveiled this yr and if issues go as deliberate, will probably be the primary Samsung software processor (AP) to be produced by Samsung Foundry utilizing its second-gen 3nm course of node. It additionally may very well be extra environment friendly than the competing Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 as a result of the latter SoC shall be manufactured by TSMC utilizing its second-gen 3nm node (N3E). Samsung Foundry is a yr forward of TSMC because it makes use of Gate-All-Round (GAA) transistors on its 3nm silicon, one thing that TSMC won’t use till it begins producing at 2nm subsequent yr.

Utilizing GAA expertise now makes the Exynos 2500 SoC extra environment friendly than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4. With GAA transistors, horizontal nanosheets are stacked vertically permitting the gate to the touch the channel on all 4 sides which reduces present leakage and improves the drive present leading to superior electrical indicators that move via and between the transistors. The underside line is that GAA results in higher chip efficiency.

Every iteration of Samsung’s Exynos chipset takes the road nearer to the efficiency of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon APs. And there may be additionally going to be a giant change within the Exynos 2600’s spec sheet. According to well-known leaker Roland Quandt (through GizmoChina), the Exynos 2600 will function Samsung’s personal GPU as an alternative of the RDNA GPU provided by AMD. 

The subsequent Exynos chipset, the Exynos 2500 with an AMD GPU, will energy the 2025 flagship Galaxy S25 and Galaxy S25+ fashions in most markets. Within the U.S. and China, the Galaxy S25 and Galaxy S25+ shall be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 which incorporates Qualcomm’s personal Adreno GPU. The Galaxy S25 Extremely will function the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chipset in all markets.

If Quandt is correct, using Samsung’s personal GPU will begin with the Exynos 2600 SoC that may be anticipated to drive the Galaxy S26 and Galaxy S26+ in most areas. There’s loads of time for Samsung to develop the in-house GPU. The extra aggressive Samsung could make its Exynos APs in comparison with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chips, the extra possible it’s that Samsung may energy the whole flagship line with its personal Exynos silicon which may save the corporate, and probably even customers, some hard-earned money.
