A few days back, Apple launched the ARM-based Silicon chips for Macs and now Samsung is considering bringing Exynos chipsets to PCs. Exynos is a series of ARM-based system-on-chips manufactured by Samsung. As per the report, Samsung is tipped to bring ARM chips based on Exynos 1000 and now the chips are officially known as the Exynos 2100. It’s Samsung’s first 5nm flagship chipset and also the competitor of Snapdragon 888.
A tipster named Anthony (@TheGalox_) shared a tweet on his official Twitter handle saying “Exynos for computers Can’t wait!”. There was no mention of whether these chipsets will be first available for notebooks or desktops. A previous report also suggests that the company tested a new chipset paired with AMD GPU which beats the Snapdragon 865 in the benchmark test. In fact, it had a tri-fold increase when compared to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865’s GPU.

Earlier in July 2020, @MauriQHD stated that Samsung is working on desktop variants of its mobile SoC. Then six months later, @TheGalox's tweet seems to reaffirm this sentiment: Samsung is working on bringing its ARM-based chips to PC. But what would an Exynos desktop chip look like? And how would it perform relative to the Apple M1?
Let's not forget Samsung has already confirmed it is partnering with AMD to develop new silicon. Samsung's work with AMD will probably come to light as the year goes on, so stay tuned to Pocket-lint for all the latest.
