Just like most other car manufacturers, Mercedes-Benz is electrifying its product range, and the equally iconic and polarizing G-Class won’t be an exception. At the 2021 IAA Mobility show in Munich, the German car manufacturer showed its Concept EQG, an electrified version of the original “G-Class” that, at least according to Mercedes-Benz, refuses to compromise when it comes to off-road capabilities.

“A cross-country vehicle which has remained true to itself for more than 40 years ventures a step into the future,” states Mercedes-Benz on the retro futuristic Concept EQG web page. “The Concept EQG combines its iconic origin and uncompromising off-road capabilities with futuristic elements of the Mercedes-EQ world.”

To promote the new car, Mercedes-Benz filmed an epic 70s space opera that explores the future of mobility, reminding us all that our present, with cars like the Concept EQG soon to be available for purchase, would like the future to people 50 years ago.

The Concept EQG has a striking two-tone paint job and an illuminated grille that reminds us of the Suzuki Jimny. Additional LED lights can be found on other sides of the vehicle as well, including an LED light bar at the front and a third brake light at the back.

Mercedes-Benz hasn’t released much technical information yet, but we know that the Concept EQG has four electric motors mounted close to the wheels. The motors are mated to a shiftable two-speed gearbox, whose goal is to ensure that the car has enough off-roading capabilities to overcome even the trickiest obstacles.

Since the current version of the electric G-Class is nearly ready for production, it’s unlikely to change dramatically before it rolls off the production line for the first time. Unfortunately, we don’t know when that will be, so we all have to patiently wait and hope it won’t be too far in the future.

samsung's new exynos 2200 smartphone chip comes with amd xclipse gpu

Samsung’s Exynos smartphone series of ARM-based system-on-chips (SoCs) traditionally comes with Mali GPUs, but the company’s new premium SoC is breaking this tradition by featuring an Xclipse GPU with AMD’s RDNA 2 graphics architecture.

The new GPU, together with 8 Armv9 CPU cores (1 powerful Cortex-X2 core, 3 balanced Cortex-A710 cores, and 4 efficient Cortex-A510 cores) and an upgraded neural processing unit (NPU), are supposed to enable next-level mobile gaming experiences, support camera sensors with a resolution of up to 200 MP, and generally ensure smooth performance under all circumstances.

“Built on the most advanced 4-nanometer (nm) EUV (extreme ultraviolet lithography) process, and combined with cutting-edge mobile, GPU and NPU technology, Samsung has crafted the Exynos 2200 to provide the finest experience for smartphone users” said Yongin Park, President of System LSI Business at Samsung Electronics.

Samsung named its new GPU “Xclipse” to reflect the fact that it’s positioned between console and traditional mobile graphic processors. The South Korean conglomerate believes that the GPU will bring an end to the old era of mobile gaming and usher in a new era characterized by features that have until now been associated primarily with PC gaming, such as hardware-accelerated ray tracing and variable rate shading.

According to David Wang, Senior Vice President of Radeon Technologies Group at AMD, the Xclipse GPU is the first result of multiple planned generations of AMD RDNA graphics in Exynos SoCs, so fans of Samsung smartphones have a lot to look forward to in the future.

In addition to the already mentioned performance-oriented improvements, the Exynos 2200 integrates a better 5G modem capable of achieving speeds of up to 10 Gbps by utilizing both 4G LTE and 5G NR signals at the same time. The SoC’s Integrated Secure Element (iSE) can safely store cryptographic information for enhanced data security and privacy.

The Exynos 2200 is currently being mass-produced, and it’s expected that it will be one of the main selling points of the upcoming Galaxy S22 smartphone.
