Exynos 8895 Could Be Running ARM’s Advanced Mali GPU Next Year – Faster Than Snapdragon 830?


Samsung has been rumored to use NVIDIA’s and AMD’s GPU inside its next SoC, but it looks like Exynos 8890 will still feature an ARM GPU, and quite a powerful one, might I add.

ARM Mali-G71 Said to Be Present Inside Exynos 8895 – Here Are All the Alleged Performance Barriers That the GPU Is Said to Scale

Exynos 8895 is said to be present inside Galaxy S8, which is said to arrive much quickly in order to compensate for the Galaxy Note 7 recall. The GPU present inside Exynos 8895 is said to be ARM’s new Mali-G71 GPU. The new GPU is said to be up to 1.8 times as powerful as the Mali-T880 MP12 GPU used in the Exynos 8890-powered Galaxy S7. There have been other rumors suggesting that the GPU is going to me more powerful than the one running inside Snapdragon 830. We’ve all seen the prowess of Adreno 530 present in Snapdragon 820, so hearing something that ARM’s GPU is going to overtake the GPU of Snapdragon 830 is something completely foreign to me.

The Mali-G71 GPU uses the ARM’s brand new Bifrost architecture, which is claimed to offer high-end 4K and VR experiences. It is also compatible with Vulkan, OpenGL ES 3.2, GPU Compute, and Android RenderScript. ARM Mali-G71 is said to be running at a base clock speed of 850MHz, and the 16nm GPU can provide a throughput of 27.2Gpix/s, which is double than that of the Mali-T880 GPU running at the same frequency.

Given below are the details taken from ARM’s website summarizing the performance metrics of the new GPU:

“As the complexity of 3D mobile graphics content continues to increase, so too must the computational capabilities of high-end GPUs. This is essential to deliver the latest games and applications to end-users within the power and thermal envelope of mobile devices. The Mali-G71 GPU was developed expressly to meet the needs of new industry advancements such as the Vulkan cross-platform graphics API from Khronos as well as the ever growing demand for a smooth mobile VR experience. The Mali-G71 GPU is scalable from one to thirty two cores and delivers up to 20% better energy efficiency, 40% better performance density and 20% external memory bandwidth saving compared to Mali-T880 under similar conditions.”
