Samsung is reportedly working on its first-ever processor for PCs. According to a report by  The Korea Economic Daily, Samsung will most likely unveil the chipset in the second half of this year.

Notable tipster Ice Universe had even tweeted about this a few days back. As per the rumors and leaks, the processor dubbed Exynos 2200, is expected to be available for both mobile and PCs. The SoC is also said to feature AMD’s Radeon GPU and run on Windows 10. 

According to the report, Samsung will use a 5nm fabrication process for this chipset. Quoting an industry source from The Korea Economic Daily, “The new Exynos will offer improved functions, including extraordinary computing power and battery efficiency, by utilizing a 5-nanometer processing technology. It’s good for both laptops and smartphones.”

Reports about Samsung's collaboration with AMD dates back to 2019. In February, ZDNet Korea had reported about Samsung's plans to enter the PC market later this year with its upcoming Exynos 2200 chipset. 

Samsung’s Exynos 2200 will face competition from the likes of Apple's new M1 chipset and Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8cx Gen2 launched last year. It would be interesting to see how the Exynos 2200 performs against them and maybe, set a new industry standard.
