  • Samsung Ditching Custom Arm core for Exynos SOC


    So this is "probably true", not exactly sure which devices are going to be affected but possible s12+ devices will no longer show a full custom CPU but rather an ARM hardened one.




    Other companies have already heard and are trying to hire talent, like Microsoft so maybe they'll try developing their own SOC. Maybe for the Surface Pro X that is currently using a Qualcomm device.

    Article references a single canceled project which was the main project at the center so "maybe" 60% of the center will be laid off, only affects CPU division. Hardening will probably be done in Korea but no one knows at this point.




    "Technically" no one is laid off yet.




     




    Related to this: 





    Both the (not anymore) custom CPU and the (now RDNA) GPU are being developed there.




     




    Samsung is probably going the Qualcomm route since Qualcomm also does ARM hardening instead of custom CPU.




     




    Personally I feel if they were handicapped by Samsung's process which is somewhat inferior to TMSC but that is hard to actually get concrete numbers to show
