Samsung's AMD-based Exynos chip allegedly smokes iPhone 12 Pro's A14 Bionic
According to a post on the South Korean forum Clien (via IT Home), an unreleased Samsung chip, presumably the Exynos 9925, which is currently being tested has scored more than the Apple A14 Bionic on 3D graphics benchmarking database GFXBench. This chipset powers the iPhone 12 family. Here is how the AMD-powered Exynos chip allegedly performed:
- Manhattan 3.1: 181.8 Fps
- Aztec Normal: 138.25 Fps
- Aztec High: 58 Fps
- Manhattan 3.1: 120.8 Fps
- Aztec Normal: 80.0 Fps
- Aztec High: 30.0 Fps
And if that's not worrisome enough for Apple, the report also says that performance has room for further improvement. The decision to throttle up seemingly depends on the developmental schedule. That said, keep in mind that these results don't come from a verifiable source and benchmark results do not accurately depict the actual performance.
Samsung and AMD are said to be working on optimization at the moment. Apparently, there are some power consumption issues that need to be sorted out.
