Samsung In Talks With Nvidia And AMD For GPU Technologies

Is Samsung dumping Qualcomm? That seems to be the plan. It is all speculation on who the company will ultimately court, but their Exynos chipsets are expected to be paired with either Nvidia or AMD tech in the future.

Currently, Samsung is using ARM’s Mali series of GPUs in its Exynos chipsets. According to information that we’ve received, Samsung is in talks with both AMD and Nvidia to license their GPU technologies. As of now, Nvidia seems to have an upper hand due to its superior Pascal architecture. However, that doesn’t mean AMD could be ruled out, especially since Sony just announced its PS4 Pro gaming console with 4K gaming that uses AMD’s Polaris architecture.
