About a year ago, it became known that AMD entered into a partnership with Samsung to develop mobile cores for new graphics accelerators. All that was known about the project was the use of RDNA architecture. Now, insiders have been able to find out more details, including release dates and test results.
According to the data provided by network informants, the release of the finished commercial product is planned for 2021. At the same time, Samsung and AMD have already tested a lot of engineering versions of mobile graphics cores. The key direction for AMD remains the optimization of custom cores for their production using Samsung's 5-nanometer process.
Moreover, the network even showed results of testing on the GFXBench platform, where the GPU from AMD demonstrated 181.8 fps in Manhattan 3.1, which is 13% higher than the results of the flagship graphics Adreno 650, which is part of the new platform Snpadragon 865 from Qualcomm. In the Aztec tests (normal and high-performance modes), AMD's engineering build results are 138.25 and 58 fps, respectively. The adreno 650 scores in similar tests are 35 and 20 fps, which is significantly inferior to AMD.
It is expected that the new AMD graphics may become part of the Exynos 1000 platform, but official statements from the companies have not yet been received.
