Samsung and AMD have signed a new agreement to license Radeon IP for Samsung’s GPU designs. What’s that mean for the company’s long-term custom SoC plans?

ARM unveiled new plans for its CPU and GPU line-ups today, with parts expected to launch in 2017. The Mali-G71 and Cortex-A73 should both be upgrades and improvements on existing parts.

The cloud rendering company Otoy is claiming to have invented a new software translation layer that would allow Nvidia’s CUDA to run on a variety of alternate GPUs, including AMD.

Nvidia has filed lawsuits against Samsung and Qualcomm — and essentially asked for a complete halt on product sales on every other competitive GPU in the business.

Just when Qualcomm thought it had the Best SoC of 2012 award in the bag, Samsung has unveiled the world’s first Cortex-A15 and Mali-T604 SoC: The Exynos 5 Dual.
