Samsung never fails to impress the technical world, whether its a new technology or a 600MP lens, it always strives to be the best. Although this time, it might be working on bringing AMD’s Radeon graphics to its Samsung smartphones. As we know, last year AMD, announced its partnership with Samsung to conduct an RDNA GPU microarchitecture to its smartphones.
There has been quite a time now, and we haven’t received any significant updates regarding the announcement thus far. But thanks to a purported benchmark score of the chip, we now know that the process is still in work. The benchmarks were posted on Clein, as first reported by Sammobile.
According to the benchmarks, the chip scored 181.8 frames in Manhattan 3.1, 138.25 frames in Aztec Normal, and 58 frames in Aztec High. Prominently, these scores are way better than the Adreno 650 GPU used on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 SoC.
From the looks of it, Samsung and AMD may have the intention of competing or matching the GPU performance of Apple’s chips instead of Qualcomm’s chipsets. According to the sources, the chipset they are targeting to enhance this chip is Apple’s upcoming A14 SoC. Although there are some difficulties both companies are facing, which includes power efficiency.
The Mali GPUs on the Exynos chipset will be replaced by the AMD GPU, once the chip can overcome the issues with the power efficiency. But still, we would have to wait until that takes place. We will be able to witness the AMD GPUs probably on Samsung’s 2021 Galaxy flagship smartphones. For example, the Samsung Galaxy S21 lineup. Still, we advise you guys to take this information as a pinch of salt and stay tuned for more updates.
