Samsung's first mobile graphics processor has been in the rumor mill for a while, and most industry insiders were expecting the first chips that would use the South Korean company's GPU to come out this summer. Unfortunately, that did not happen and it looks like the first Exynos processors to use a Samsung GPU will not hit the market before 2018.

SamMobile reveals that "according to a new rumored roadmap Samsung is going to start using its own GPUs with Exynos chipsets by 2017 or 2018." The same source mentioned that Samsung is expected to use the HSA architecture for its chips, a design approach that allows the CPU and GPU to use the same bus, sharing memory and tasks as needed. The roadmap also suggests a transition - a new Exynos SoC with HSA architecture that would use a Mali GPU. This chip is expected to show up "in a year or two" and its successor will use a Samsung GPU as well. This chip, unfortunately, should come out "by 2018."

All the above should be taken as it is for now - nothing more than a rumor. Samsung still has to confirm its plans to develop an in-house GPU. We will get back to this topic as soon as we hear more about it, so stay tuned.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
