That new RDNA-powered design seems like it's on the right track, with new rumors from South Korean tech forum Clien which says the Radeon-powered chip "crushed" the Qualcomm Adreno 650 GPU in GFXBench. There's quick a smack down from the AMD/Samsung chip versus the Adreno 650, check it out:

AMD/Samsung chip

  • Manhattan 3.1 test: 181FPS
  • Aztec Normal: 138FPS
  • Aztec High: 58FPS

Adreno 650

  • Manhattan 3.1 test: 123FPS
  • Aztec Normal: 53FPS
  • Aztec High: 20FPS

If these scores are real, then we're in for a gigantic surprise when Samsung releases its new phones. It could mean that a huge uptick in performance will come from Qualcomm's next-gen chips, with mobile graphics a big deal when it comes to next-gen gaming smartphones.
