Samsung has now announced what appears to be a launch date for its next-gen flagship SoC, the Exynos 2200. The company has also confirmed that the chipset will feature an AMD RDNA 2-based GPU, with the Exynos 2200 set to make its debut on the Galaxy S22.

With the MediaTek Dimensity 9000, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, and Apple A15 Bionic all launched, Samsung's next-gen flagship chipset is all that remains uncovered. Not for long, though, as the company has now finally revealed what looks to be a launch date for its upcoming premium SoC, the Exynos 2200.

"#PlaytimeIsOver," Samsung Semiconductor announced on Twitter a few hours ago. "The gaming marketplace is about to get serious. Stay tuned for the next #Exynos with the new GPU born from RDNA 2. January 11, 2022." 

That confirms that the Exynos 2200 will, indeed, feature an RDNA 2-based GPU. At the moment, all GPU benchmarks of the Exynos 2200 were run on early drivers, so it's hard to tell how powerful the SoC's GPU actually is. Recent leaks claim the Exynos 2200 will only better the Exynos 2100's GPU by 17% but those numbers are not to be taken seriously. Either way, we'll find out more about the Exynos 2200 on January 11.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
