Nearly a year ago, Samsung and AMD announced a partnership on mobile GPU for Samsung’s future mobile processors. We expected the Exynos 990 will be the first processor to feature the first of the new GPUs but that wasn’t the case. Now, a new report says the 5nm Exynos 1000 will feature the new GPU which is based on AMD’s technology.
ITHome reports that they have been informed that the new GPU will appear in the Exynos 1000 which is expected to be the name of Samsung’s next flagship chipset that should power the successor to the Galaxy S20.
The GPU is currently referred to as RDNA-Exynos and has reportedly surfaced on Geekbench. A comparison of its scores shows it surpassing the Adreno 650 GPU of the Snapdragon 865. Below is a table showing the performance of the two GPUs:
|Manhattan 3.1||181.8 fps||123 fps|
|Aztec Normal||138.25 fps||53.5 fps|
|Aztec High||58 fps||20 fps|
The Exynos 1000 should be announced by the fourth quarter of the year. However, before that, another flagship chipset called the Exynos 992 is expected to launch. This processor will power the upcoming Galaxy Note20 series.
