Back during its Computex 2021 keynote at the start of the month, AMD confirmed that it was working with Samsung to create an Exynos SoC, propelled with its RDNA2 GPU architecture. While the chipset is expected to make its debut sometime in August – given the timeline, maybe just in time for Samsung’s Unpacked event – performance details allegedly belonging to the chipset have leaked.
Unsurprisingly, the source of the leak happens to be none other than everybody’s favourite leaskter, Ice universe (@UniverseIce), who posted said details on Twitter. The images are screenshots, taken from UL’s 3DMark app and more specifically, the Wild Life test.
In total, the RDNA2-powered Exynos SoC was able to achieve a score of 8134; that score outpaces Apple’s own devices, six of which currently sit within the top 10 list of the benchmark. Having said that Ice universe is also quick to point out that the CPU listed in the test uses a Cortex-A77 architecture, which is pretty old. For comparison, the current Exynos 2100 uses a Cortex-X1 core, and ARM has already unveiled its new Cortex-X2 core.
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

As previously reported, one core feature AMD is providing to Samsung with its RDNA2 architecture is something that is already provided on desktop GPUs: real-time ray-tracing. While there is still no proof of concept of the feature in action on a mobile device, this alleged benchmark is now the closest thing to the chipset’s performance. At least, until its official unveiling.
