Samsung Galaxy S III GPU benchmark pops up, tops charts

23 April, 2012 | Comments (120) | Post your comment

The yet unannounced successor to the Galaxy S II popped up briefly in GLBenchmark's results page to confirm that the S III (or whatever it's called) is the next top dog in droidland - GPU-wise. The results have since been hidden from prying eyes, which does give them an air of legitimacy.

The device, sporting a GT-I9300 monicker, does better than almost all the major players on today's market. In the off-screen 720p test, where raw GPU power is emphasized, it achieved 92.2 frames per second, beating the Tegra 3 and Adreno 225 GPUs by a lot and even gave the dual-core PowerVR SGX543MP2 inside the iPhone 4S a spanking. It did come short of the new iPad's quad-core PowerVR SGX543MP4 GPU, though.

Higher is better

  • Samsung GT-I9300
  • HTC One S
  • HTC One X
  • Apple iPhone 4S
  • Apple iPad 3
  • Samsung Galaxy S II

While these are preliminary results, which will probably be different from the ones of the final product, they do point to a powerful GPU inside the next Galaxy flagship. Previous rumors pointed to the same Mali-400MP GPU architecture as in the Galaxy S II, but maybe Samsung is adding another core to it.

There isn't long remaining before we find out - the Samsung flagship will hit the stage on May 3 in London.

I totally agree with you! Unless they release a Motorola's kind of Webtop app bundled with cheap dock 4 cores are useless. Focus more on bigger battery, just look at HTC's One X battery fiasco! :( With that I hope Samsung releases a MAX version...
