'Leaked' Samsung Galaxy S III GPU Benchmark Results Top Charts
There has been much fanfare over the weeks about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S III, rumored to come with a quad-core Exynos 4412 1.4GHz processor with a built-in LTE chip - and here's more oil to fuel the flames. A careless (?) tester has accidentally hosted the upcoming device's benchmark results on GLBenchmark and took it down, but not before a screenshot was taken and sent to Phone Arena.
The phone will allegedly come with an ARM Mali-400 GPU, making it 50% faster than the current edition in its predecessor, the Galaxy S II. Leaked scores above show that the device, sporting the GT-I9300 tag, does incrementally better than current major players in today's market, beating even the latest Tegra 3 and Adreno 225 GPUs by a fair amount. The dual-core PowerVR SGX543MP2 in the iPhone 4S was not spared as well; the Galaxy S III only lost out to the new iPad's quad-core PowerVR SGX543MP4 GPU. These results are likely from a prototype Galaxy S III unit but they are nonetheless pretty impressive and pretty legit.
GSMArena - 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.
Powerful innards aside, the Samsung Galaxy S III, touted to be the official device for Olympics 2012, might also be released alongside the company's own cloud service, S-Cloud, pointing to an altogether aggressive move on Samsung's part to take over a market dominated by Apple's iOS mobile devices. Right now, we can only wait till May 3rd to ge hold of the finalized details. Do stay tuned for our event coverage over in London.
