Earlier this month, at Computex 2021, AMD CEO Lisa Su dropped the bombshell news (via The Verge) that it’s partnering with Samsung to develop a new Exynos system-on-chip (SoC) that uses Radeon graphics. 

Samsung’s Exynos SoCs are nothing new — they power phones sold in certain regions and generally are regarded as inferior to Qualcomm chips — but this new one, co-developed with AMD, could shake things up and pave the way for future phones that absolute graphical powerhouses.

With AMD’s graphics expertise, future Samsung phones could put dedicated “gaming phones” — a massively growing market, especially in Asia — to shame. If you're writing software that uses it, it's always been a fantastic idea, and it only gets more powerful and more feasible every year.
