Samsung’s upcoming Exynos 2200 chipset with the AMD mRDNA GPU is making some noise even before it is unveiled. Benchmark data published on Korean forum Clien (via Tron) has revealed that the upcoming Exynos 2200 chipset with AMD GPU has outscored even the powerful Apple A14 Bionic chipset.
The benchmark results show that the Exynos 2200 hit 170.7 fps on Manhattan 3.1 whereas the A14 Bionic managed to score only 120 fps.
The same disparity was found in the Aztec Normal Tier benchmark with A14 Bionic scoring 79.9 fps. The Exynos 2200 comfortably touched 121.4 fps in this test. Lastly, the Exynos chipset scored 51.5 fps in the Aztec High Tier benchmark while the Apple chipset settled for 30 fps.
The Exynos 2200 outperformed the Apple A14 Bionic in all three departments
These scores make the disparity between the two chipsets pretty evident. FrontTron clarified that these results were from June 2021 adding that the Exynos chipset was running on AMD’s development beta drivers.
This tells us that these scores cannot be considered final. Not until we see how it performs during everyday use. Regardless, a performance surplus of 45% is certainly encouraging for Samsung’s new chipset.
Samsung will reveal the Exynos 2200 chipset by December 2021, just a month or so before the arrival of the Galaxy S22 flagship. We first learned about Samsung’s collaboration with AMD in January this year. We’ve come across a slew of leaks about the chipset since then.
The new Samsung chipset should make its limited debut with the Galaxy S22 early next year. The company will also have a variant with Qualcomm’s 4nm Snapdragon 895 SoC onboard. South Korea and North America are likely to receive the Snapdragon 895 version of the Galaxy S22. Meanwhile, the flagship will launch with the Exynos 2200 in other markets.
Much like in the years past, Samsung’s upcoming flagship will be decked with a ton of new features. A lot is riding on the Galaxy S22 since there’s no Galaxy Note flagship launching in 2021. This is partly due to the launch of the foldable Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Z Flip 3 earlier this month.
