Ray tracing is a graphics technology that traces the paths of light rays to simulate the reflections, refractions, and shadows of digital images or videos more accurately. The enhanced levels of realism it brings to in-game graphics has made it an increasingly important part of the mobile gaming experience.
The Exynos 2400 uses the Xclipse 940 GPU built on the AMD RDNA™ 3 architecture, which delivers significant performance improvements over its predecessor. AMD RDNA™ 3 brings increased performance and enhanced mobile power efficiency, while also introducing second-generation ray tracing accelerators for more realistic graphics. This means Samsung’s ongoing collaboration with AMD will provide mobile gamers with high-performance, beautiful visuals, and long gaming experiences in the games of today and tomorrow.
Samsung has established first-runner status with the Exynos 2200 being the first smartphone chipset to offer hardware-based ray tracing. With upgrades and improvements, the Xclipse GPU offers console graphic features like variable rate shading, immediate mode rendering, and super resolution function including FidelityFX Super Resolution. It is also working closely with game developers to simultaneously launch new titles on mobile along with PC and console.
This advance in game development signifies a new era for mobile gaming, in which developers are able to make games more efficiently and bring ultra-realistic graphics to mobile gamers. As such, Exynos is expanding collaboration in the mobile gaming ecosystem — including in both hardware and software — to further establish itself as a central figure in the industry.
