Samsung May Be Working On An In-house GPU

By 01:59 Thu, 22 Jul 2021 Comments

Late last year we heard that Samsung may be designing its own processor core. That is yet to materialize, but now reports from Korean media recommdiscontinue the tech giant is looking to create in-houtilize GPUs too.

The GPU will reportedly be ready by the middle of next year. It's not entirely clear if it will be combined into an all-Samsung chipset with the homebrewed Central Processing Units (CPU) or not, but if it is the plans are for a chipset with a 64-bit capable big.LITTLE processor and a Cat. 6 LTE modem.

The company already has its own modems and if it lives up to both its Central Processing Units (CPU) and GPU ambitions, it will join the ranks of Qualcomm, Intel and Nvidia, companies that create chipsets from all in-houtilize parts.

Until now Samsung had its Exynos line (using ARM-designed Central Processing Units (CPUs) and GPUs), but over the last couple of years it was mostly relying on Qualcomm’s offerings.

The GPU information was revealed as part of a conversation with the SEC – Samsung is currently embroiled in a battle with Nvidia over GPU patents.
