Samsung and AMD’s Exynos chip could power your next laptop and smartphone

Image Description

Samsung’s next Exynos chip might not just feature in its smartphones but we could see it in laptops too. While we don’t yet know much about the chipset, it will likely feature an AMD GPU and is set to be Samsung’s latest efforts to combat Apple’s powerful M1 processor.

According to The Korea Economic Daily, industry sources have said that the premium Exynos 2200 chip (set to be unveiled in June) will be used in both Samsung’s smartphones and laptops. This suggests that its phones will not only get a serious bump in processing power but Samsung could be turning its suite of devices into a more unified platform.

That unified approach has been employed by Apple for some time, and with its M1 chip already making the reverse jump from MacBooks to the iPad Pro, it might not be long before we see M1 powered iPhones. Samsung is likely wanting to get out ahead of that announcement with its own souped-up line of handsets and laptops.

Can the new Exynos chip stand up to M1?

Samsung’s laptop Exynos SoC (system on a chip) hasn’t been officially revealed, so until then we won't know how it stacks up for sure. But we can compare what's been leaked about it to Apple's M1 to get an idea of how the processors might compare to each other.

Rumors suggest that the Exynos SoC will use also use a 5nm process, like the M1, suggesting both chips will have similar energy efficiency. Though we could see the Exynos pulling ahead with its AMD GPU.

AMD has a solid footing in the GPU market – making some of the best dedicated graphics processors out there. We'd hope its experience means the Exynos chipset will beat out the M1 in terms of graphical power.

If Samsung can also pull off impressive processing capabilities, its upcoming Exynos chip could be a force to be reckoned with.

  • Microsoft is making another big change to Windows 11

    It appears Microsoft is making a big change to one of Windows 11’s most useful features, with a redesigned Task Manager appearing in a new preview build.

    Preview builds of Windows 11 are made available to select users who have signed up to be ‘Windows Insiders’. They can check out new and upcoming features, while pointing out any issues or bugs, giving Microsoft a good idea of the kind of reception the new feature will get, while also having any problems pointed out and fixed, before it gets rolled out to all Windows 11 users.

    As Windows Central reports, the latest build, 22538, comes with a tweaked Task Manager with a new design that’s more in keeping with the rest of Windows 11’s look. Not only does it now look more like it belongs in Windows 11, the tabs for switching between views are no longer at the top of the app. Instead, they run down the left-hand side as a menu, much like most modern Windows 11 apps.

    Microsoft hasn’t mentioned any tweaks to the Task Manager, and it appears that the version in build 22538 is extremely early, as it’s not fully functional. If you rely on Task Manager, as many of us do (it’s a handy tool for closing unresponsive programs or checking how your system is running), then give Windows 11 build 22538 a miss for now.

    Still, it gives us an idea of what Microsoft is planning for the iconic Task Manager.


    Analysis: tweak carefully

    We’re always pleased to hear that Microsoft is working on improving its legacy apps and bringing them in line with Windows 11. Many of the apps that come with Windows 11, such as Paint, have appearing in various versions of Windows for decades now, so many of them are well overdue a facelift, while also getting added features to make them more useful.

    Task Manager is one such tool. It’s been a staple of Windows releases since Windows NT 4.0 back in 1996, and it’s one of the most useful tools included in the operating system. When you press Ctrl + Shift + Esc, Task Manager will appear and show all the apps, services and processes that are currently running on your PC.

    If your PC is running slowly, checking Task Manager is a good way to see if there’s a particular app that’s causing issues. Also, if an app crashes and becomes unresponsive, opening up Task Manager allows you to close it.

    It’s packed with handy features, many which haven’t changed in years, and while Microsoft’s moves to make it fit in more with Windows 11’s overall look is to be welcomed, we’d also urge caution. When tweaking such a useful legacy app, Microsoft needs to be careful not to drop handy features or simply the app too much – as it could frustrate users who have come to depend on Task Manager.

    Microsoft does need to ensure that the look and feel of Windows 11 remains consistent over both new apps and older ones as well, but it also needs to make sure that doesn’t come at the cost of usability.

    Hopefully, we’ll get a clearer idea of what Microsoft is planning to do with Task manager in Windows 11 in upcoming Insider builds.
