The global outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent swift transition toward remote work has tested the production capacity of virtually every laptop manufacturer. In the Middle East, the laptop and desktop market grew more than 12 percent during the pandemic, with shipments going up by 23 percent. Now, Qatar Free Zones Authority (QFZA) has announced its plan to establish a state-of-the-art production facility in Umm Alhoul Free Zone. Once operational, it will become Qatar’s first laptop manufacturing facility and ship out over 350,000 products every year.

The task of building the facility has been appointed to iLife Digital, a leading intelligent robotics and electronics company based in Florida, US, and Prime Technologies, a subsidiary of Ali Bin Ali Holding. The two companies will use it to produce everything from laptops to desktop computers to smartwatches.

“We are proud to host this partnership between iLife Digital and Prime Technologies at Umm Alhoul Free Zone. It is the latest example of our close collaboration with the Qatari private sector to foster growth and innovation for the country and the broader region,” said H.E. Ahmad Al-Sayed, Minister of State and Chairman of QFZA.

In addition to becoming the region’s manufacturing powerhouse, the new facility will also support logistics and R&D activities and become home to a consumer solutions center. In total, it’s expected to create 160 jobs in the region, including 144 skilled opportunities.

“Our Group has always been known for pioneering efforts and supporting innovations to get the best for the people of Qatar. The new facility, with its state-of-the-art production and R&D facility along with a logistics and customer solutions center, is a reiteration of such efforts,” commented Vice-Chairman & EVP of Ali Bin Ali Holding Mr. Nabeel Ali Bin Ali.

The construction of Qatar’s first laptop manufacturing facility is an important step toward achieving the country’s National Vision 2030, whose goal is to create a knowledge-based economy and promote economic diversification.

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.
