About two weeks back, we learned of a report that the AMD Radeon GPU for an upcoming flagship Exynos chip from Samsung was being internally tested by the companies. The exciting bit in that report included a claim about how the Radeon GPU, despite throttling, was easily able to outperform current Mali GPUs that Samsung uses now.
Of course, rumors like this are often fabricated to create hype for an upcoming product. But if a leak today from popular Twitter leaker 'Ice Universe' is to be believed, the earlier performance report was true indeed.
Apparently, the AMD Exynos chip - reportedly set to debut inside the upcoming Exynos 2200 chipset - has achieved an overall score of 8,134 points with an average frame rate of 50.3 in 3DMark's Wild Life GPU benchmark. It has been noted that the CPU paired alongside it is based on the Arm Cortex-A77 architecture. The current flagship processor from Samsung is the Exynos 2100 which consists of a mix of very high-performance Cortex X1 cores as well as A78 cores. Hence, the final version may perform better still.
Exclusive: Samsung is testing the AMD GPU in the new Exynos, and the Wild Life test on the 3D Mark has scored 8134 points. It is worth mentioning that the CPU in this test is A77 architecture, for reference only. Each test has different results, we need to wait for more results. pic.twitter.com/Rej9vqyP6s— Ice universe (@UniverseIce) June 29, 2021
The score somewhat matches that of the Apple A14 Bionic chip inside the iPhone 12 Pro Max. In comparison, the Exynos 2100 scores around ~5,300 points in this test while the Snapdragon 888 chip gets around ~5,400 points.
