Mysterious RDNA2-powered Exynos delivers over 50 percent higher performance than the Apple A14 in Aztec Ruins bench
Citing reports from a Korean tech community platform, ITHome recently stated that benchmark results leaked for an under-development RDNA2-powered Samsung Exynos chip. According to the ITHome report, Samsung engineers are currently targeting performance parity with the Apple A14. If the engineering sample results are anything to go by, however, next-gen Exynos might be more powerful than expected thanks to its RDNA2 graphics.
In the Aztec Ruins high preset benchmark, the Apple A14 scores 79.9 FPS. In contrast, the unconfirmed Exynos chip allegedly scores 138.25. It's important to note here that we're unable to confirm the veracity of this report. If true, it would mean a significant leap forward for Exynos graphics - which is exactly what Samsung hoped to achieve through its partnership with AMD.
While these mobile results are impressive, earlier reports indicated that Samsung is planning to release Exynos chips for laptops. If that turns out to be true, this chip will be going head to head with the Apple M1. Even a 50-60 percent GPU performance improvement over the A14 isn't quite enough to topple the M1.
In any case, we should hear more about next-gen Exynos in the months to come, and we will be sure to keep you posted!
