Final week we noticed a Geekbench run from the Galaxy A55’s SoC, nevertheless it wasn’t in the Galaxy A55 – it was utilizing some type of take a look at platform. Right this moment, that adjustments, as a prototype of the A55 itself has additionally made it onto Geekbench, and this confirms the attention-grabbing GPU selection Samsung’s made.
The A55’s chipset is extensively believed to be marketed as Exynos 1480, following, in fact, within the footsteps of the 1380 seen within the A54 and the 1280 within the A53. Not like these, nonetheless, the brand new one will not use a Mali GPU, as a substitute choosing an AMD RDNA2-based Xclipse 530 GPU, which has been confirmed by at the moment’s benchmark run.
This theoretically might even have the flexibility to supply raytracing in video games. That does not imply it is going to, nonetheless, so do not get your hopes up an excessive amount of. Nonetheless, that is prone to be a beefier GPU than what the A5x line has gotten to date, which is an effective step in the fitting path. Over on the CPU facet, the enhancements in comparison with the Exynos 1380 do exist, however they don’t seem to be superb – a single-core rating of 1,127 and a multi-core rating of two,090 is what the A55 managed, whereas the A54 scores about 1,108 and a pair of,797, respectively.
So in the event you had hoped the A55 would lastly be an enormous leap for CPU efficiency in Samsung’s best-selling line of smartphones, that hope must be postponed for an additional yr no less than.
The prototype that ran Geekbench had 8GB of RAM on board, which was the utmost quantity you possibly can get the A54 with. In line with earlier rumors, the Galaxy A55 could have a 6.5-inch FHD+ 120 Hz OLED display, a 50 MP important digicam, and support for 25W wired charging (with no charger within the field, in fact).
