Samsung is building a GPU


Fudzilla has recently confirmed that Samsung has been building a GPU and has been doing so for several years, hiring many people from distinguished GPU producers like AMD, Nvidia, Intel and others.

Head hunting or otherwise buying talent from other companies is a common tactic when doing something new, as workers who have in depth knowledge of the current state-of-the-art is very hard to come by.

Building their own GPU can potentially bring many benefits to Samsung, particularly in the mobile markets as it could remove the need for them to liscence and use GPUs from other manufacturers. This would allow Samsung to retain more of it's profits on their mobile phones or tablets and further differentiate their products from other manufacturers.

People who would like to see Samsung create a high powered Gaming GPU for PCs will likely be disappointed, as Samsung will most likely only build GPUs for the mobile market to compete with the like of Nvidia's K1.

As with many companies who entered the GPU market in the past, it will likely take Samsung several years to find their feet here as even ATI and Nvidia began their journey with mediocre products. We can be sure that Samsung have the money and expertise to produce something great here, even if it takes them a few more years.

Would be awesome in the mobile market maybe they could do ok but against 2 well established companies and obv intel but it maybe hard to get their fingers into the door but also a big company like samsung with the clout could maybe give nvidia and amd at least a run for their money.Quote
