A new leak suggests that Samsung's upcoming Exynos 1000 and Exynos 2000 series SoC could come with an AMD Radeon GPU. They are likely to be launched in Q2 or Q3 2021, presumably alongside the Samsung Galaxy Note 21 or Galaxy Z Fold 3. Another forum post says that the Radeon-branded GPU manages to outperform the A14 Bionic.

We've known about Samsung and AMD working together to develop a mobile GPU since early 2019. The mystery Radeon-branded GPU was expected to make its debut alongside the Exynos 2100. Concerns around its thermal performance prompted Samsung to push its launch to a later date. Samsung even acknowledged that the Exynos 2100's successor would run said AMD Radeon GPU. If a new leak is to be believed, we might not have to wait that long.

Prolific leaker Ice Universe Tweeted that we can expect to see the AMD GPU in action sometime in Q2 or Q3 2020 alongside the next Exynos 1000 and Exynos 2000 series SoC. The information sits in line with Samsung's product release cycle. We usually see a new Galaxy Note smartphone being released at that time. While the Galaxy Note 21's existence has been questioned many times, Samsung will almost certainly unveil the new Exynos SoC alongside the Galaxy Z Fold 3.

Last year, a leak told us that the AMD Radeon GPU could handily outperform Qualcomm's Adreno 650. That statement appears to hold for the A14 Bionic too if a forum post from Clien (via Wccftech) is to be believed. However, some salt is in order here, as the mystery GPU seems to have the same GFXBench performance metrics as last time, i.e. 181.8 FPS on the Manhattan 3.1, 138.25 FPS on Aztec Normal and 58 FPS on Aztec High. In contrast, the A14 Bionic's GPU scored 146.4 FPS on the Manhattan 3.1, 79.8 FPS on Aztec Normal and 30.5 FPS on Aztec High.
