Samsung mobile GPU coming in mid-2015

Next-gen Exynos SoC will use a mobile GPU designed by Samsung

While an official confirmation is expected for February, the first SoC completely designed by Samsung is expected to arrive later next year, but in time to equip the next-gen Note phablet.

Samsung might launch the Galaxy Note 5 before the end of 2015 and this product could come with a major hardware change. The Exynos chips made by Samsung at this time are based on the ARM architecture and use the Mali graphics processing units virtually untouched. According to recent rumors from industry insiders, Samsung is working on its own GPU design already, and this may be ready to launch in a few months.

A report published by ZDNet Korea reveals that Samsung has almost completed work on its GPU core. The details will be unveiled at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference in San Francisco which is scheduled to take place in early February, claims the same source.

If the development of the graphics part completes its last stage without facing any major setbacks, the next-gen Exynos SoC by Samsung should be ready for use in the next Galaxy Note phablet. Since nothing is official for now, we should wait for the February conference to find out more about Samsung's mobile GPU and the company's next-gen flagship phablet.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
