Samsung Exynos 5 Octa processor is getting some competition with the announcement of Renesas AP6 processor at MWC2013. This SoC comes with the same big.LITTLE configuration (4x Cortex A15, 4x Cortex A7), but with a PowerVR SGX Series 6 ‘Rogue’ GPU, which, I assume, should outperform PowerVR SGX544MP3 GPU used in Samsung SoC.
But before I conclude, I’ll just drop a performance comparison chart between different PowerVR SGX series (source), since it’s the first mobile processor that I know of that has been announced with PowerVR Series 6 GPU. (LG H13 is actually the first, but it targets “home entertainment”, not the mobile space)
With over 30 GFlops @ 300 MHz, G6100 appears to outperform any other ARM GPUs at this frequency. G6100 is the low-end version of the Series 6 series, and we don’t know exactly which one will be used in APE6 SoC.
