Apple recently came out with the latest A15 processor, the chipset is a beast at performance. For now, there are no android counters for this chip but soon Samsung is coming out with the Exynos 2200 and Snapdragon is coming out with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 898. But, today’s highlight is the Exynos 2200 and its ray-tracing abilities to be more specific, here is how Exynos 2200 supports Ray Tracing.
Exynos 2200 Supports Ray Tracing
For the current prototype, the Samsung Exynos 2200 is still a 1+3+4 design, with a mega-core of Cortex X2 at 2.9GHz, a large core at 2.8GHz, a small core at 2.2GHz, and a GPU of AMD GPU at 1250MHz. Rumours are that the scores of 2200 will surpass Apples A15 Bionic, but that is yet to be proven when the chipset comes out. Samsung also demonstrates that Exynos 2200 supports ray tracing. Samsung shared picture examples of what the ray tracing will do for their GPU.
This is something very new to see ray tracing in a mobile processor which until last year was only possible in huge Nvidia RTX cards. According to Samsung, this will correctly represent how light is supposed to bounce off objects and show reflections on other surfaces as well. This is such a graphic intensive task, I don’t know how Samsung will manage the heat but it will be fun to try.
All the performance promises of Exynos 2200 has made US operator Verizon ask Samsung to use Exynos chipset in the Verizon version of the US models instead of Snapdragon chipset. Usually, the US models get Snapdragon and only a few countries like UK, China, India etc get the Exynos version, but this time, maybe Samsung makes an exception.
So what do you guys think of ray tracing on a mobile chipset? Do you think that Exynos will finally surpass Snapdragon and Apple A-series chips? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
