AMD and Samsung's upcoming mobile GPU reportedly 'destroys' the Adreno 650 in GFXBench
Samsung's in-house Exynos chips have been at the receiving end of a lot of flak, primarily due to their lackluster performance compared to equally-powered Qualcomm offerings. The company's SoC division is in dire straits, and is even considering a refresh for its Exynos 990. Although nothing meaningful has come out of Samsung's partnership with AMD, that is set to change next year. And it just might be the shot in the arm Samsung needs to get back in the game.
A poster on South Korean tech forum Clien states that Samsung and AMD's in-house Raedon-based GPU 'crushed' Qualcomm's Adreno 650 in a GFXBench best. It scored 181.8 fps on the Manhattan 3.1 test 138.25 fps on Aztec Normal and 58 fps on Aztec High. The numbers are significantly higher than the Adreno 650's 123, 53.5, and 20 fps, respectively, on the same tests. If these numbers are accurate, then Samsung's upcoming line of Exynos chips can potentially outperform Qualcomm's subsequent flagships.
However, it'll be quite some time before we see the mobile AMD Radeon chip in action. The post further adds that there are some pressing issues with the chip's power consumption and that it will take both companies a while to iron out all the kinks. We're looking at a 2021 debut at the earliest, presumably alongside the Galaxy S21 series.
