Last month AMD announced that Samsung licensed its Radeon graphics technology for use in future mobile graphics. During the second quarter earnings call from Samsung Electronics, the South Korean firm revealed that the first products with SoCs with AMD technology will hit the market within a year or two. The Samsung executive also stressed that AMD's graphics technology will not only be used in mobile SoCs but also in other applications:
To answer your second question about our AMD partnership. As you know, AMD has been a leader, especially in the GPU area since the early days of the PC market and is one of the leaders in terms of technology. We think that with this partnership, we will be able to leverage the GPU competitiveness of AMD to enhance the performance of not only our mobile SOCs, but also in other applications.
But considering the usual time it takes to vet out IT technology, we expect that the GPU technology will start being adopted in products that will be launched two years down the road roughly.
