AMD To Enter Mobile Phone CPU/GPU Market?

Last year Samsung let slip that they were working with AMD to manufacture mobile phone chips to replace Snapdragon, but don't worry, it won't happen till 2021.


I personally think for some reason that AMD will make great mobile phone processors and I don't entirely know why? They just seem like they will be good.


Aside from our opinions whether they are going to succeed or fail, let's talk specs:

The AMD CPU will feature UP TO 3GHz but not on all of the 8 cores included. That's right, 8 cores in a mobile phone.

It will have 4 ARM Cortex A55 cores clocked at an even 2.00GHz, 2x Gaugin "mobile core" based on the Cortex A78 at 2.60GHz and to top it off 2x Gaugin "PRO mobile core" that are based on the Cortex X1 clocked at the impressive 3.00 GHz.


This phone processor will also be accompanied by an AMD RADEON RDNA 2 GPU's... This will outperform the Qualcomm Adreno 650 by nearly 45%.


Now the big question... How will keep this beast cooooool? Well the simple answer is no one knows. There probably will not be fans attached inside the case as this will add too much bulk, noise and vibrations (technically the same thing). When the mobile chip reaches a certain temperature the core clock will probably plummet making the chip much slower for those seconds it takes to shed the excess heat. This will either lead to an inconsistent experience for the user. However, when the chip is not suffocating itself with a 90 degree sweat it will perform rather well smashing most if not all Snapdragon and Qualcomm processors out of the water.
