Tipster @UniverseIce recently claimed on Weibo that Samsung’s upcoming Exynos 2200 SoC would feature a six-core RDNA2 implementation. To put this into perspective, the upcoming Steam Deck, capable of playing AAA PC games, features 8-core RDNA2 graphics. This means that Exynos 2200 powered devices could potentially deliver experiences on par with current-gen consoles.

Tipster @UniverseIce recently stated in a Weibo post that the upcoming Samsung Exynos 2200 is set to feature a 6-core RDNA2 graphics processor. If this turns out to be accurate, Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S devices could feature a remarkable improvement to performance over the current generation. 

How fast would an hexa-core RDNA2 implementation be? The smallest RDNA2 GPU we currently know about is the one set to feature in Valve’s Steam Deck, which features an 8-core variant. Factoring in heat dissipation and lower clocks, this would mean that a Galaxy S smartphone with RDNA2 graphics could deliver anywhere between 66-75 percent of the Steam Decks performance. This is a substantial leap over the Nintendo Switch, and definitely enough processing power to handle current-gen AAA console titles, albeit at lower resolutions. Considering that the Xbox One features a 1.3 TFLOP GPU, this means that Exynos 2200 devices may deliver better-than-console performance. 

Between ARM on Mac and RDNA2 on mobile, it looks like 2022 will be a year where mobile and PC hardware converge further. The implications aren’t entirely clear as of yet. But we wouldn’t be surprised to see more current-gen console ports make their way over to mobile in the years to come.
