“Samsung will next year with its own GPU for smartphone socs”




Samsung would work according to rumors on its own GPU as part of a smartphone soc. This should be ready by mid-2015 and will probably make its appearance in the Exynos SOCs of the company.

The rumors are coming from the Korean branch of Zdnet, which is known to have sources within Samsung. According to the site, Samsung is almost done with the development of its own GPU and will do this in mid-2015, introduced in mobile phones. Incidentally, there are no further details known about the specifications of the conscious GPU, which is probably used as part of Samsung’s Exynos SOCs.

If the rumors are true, then Samsung announces the GPU during the Solid-State Circuits Conference, held in San Francisco in February next year. If the rumors are correct about an entry in mid-2015, it is possible that Samsung chose to build the GPU in the successor to the Galaxy Note 4. The successor of the Galaxy S5 would just go have a Snapdragon 810 of soc Qualcomm, as claimed SamMobile earlier.

In his Exynos SOCs Samsung still makes use of Mali GPUs, designed by ARM. Incidentally, there have long been rumors that go for Samsung Exynos SOCs are also the application processor wants to develop itself, which as yet is also made use of ARM technology. The existing ARM Cortex cores that are now used in Exynos SOCs would eventually be replaced by a different design.
