SoC Performance: GPU
Next up we've got some tests the focus solely on graphics performance. The Adreno 330 graphics core used in the Note 3 is the most powerful currently available in a Qualcomm SoC, so we were particularly interested in seeing what it could do...
The Galaxy Note 3 finished about in the middle of the pack in the An3DBench XL benchmark. Many parts of this test are v-sync limited, however, and the test hasn't been updated in quite a while.
GLBenchmark (now known as GFX Bench), paints a very different picture than the An3DBench XL tests. Here, the Note 3 easily outperforms all other Androind-based smartphones. It is only the Apple devices which offer better performance in the fillrate test.
